Find your happy...


It's been beautiful and sunny in my neck of the woods this week, all the snow has melted off and I've been enjoying afternoon walks with my dog every day. Life is pretty darn good at the moment. :)

Another thing that recently made me very happy was the return of Sister Stamps to the CC Designs store. I was able to get a few that had been on my 'must have' list for quite a while, as well as some of their newer stamps like little Harumi here. My very first roommate freshman year of college was named Harumi. She was part of a student exchange program from Japan and I still remember her, so this stamp really takes me back and makes me smile. I created a simple scene for this Harumi to live in with some random scraps of pattern paper... I'm a sucker for cloud prints just for this reason, LOL.

Alrighty, time for me to get busy. Thanks for stopping by and TGIF everybody!

This is wonderful Amy. I love how you used the paper to make it look like she's laying in the grass.
