Nothing But Happiness

Hello, blog friends!! Another lovely weekend has come and gone.  The garage sale was a success...sold some cards and LOTS of old stamp sets :)  They all found good homes :)  Here is the Verve Blessing card I was supposed to make for Viva La Verve on Friday...LOL.  Karen's Sweet Sunday sketch had a bigger panel so this sentiment fit perfectly.  I was "experimenting" with a bunch of pattern paper...determined to use old scraps.  Hmmm...I'm no Jen del Muro or Susan Liles, but I think I like it.  I love the papers from Basic Grey's Sugar Rush :)  The 2 small strips are from this collection.  I also inked the edges of everything with PTI's tea dye inks.  It really does softened the cream edges of the sentiment and flower.  And because it's an Irish blessing, I added a green button :)  I'm hoping this blessing works for me as it's staff meeting Monday...if it really works, it will be short or cancelled LOL...or at least some goodies :)  Have a lovely day :)  Blessings to you all as you are all blessings to me :)
