Happiness is...


made to be shared! It's Monday all, I still feel well and that makes me so very happy.
The sun's shining on a lovely autumn afternoon. And I had a chance to combine challenges
for a card for the 365 Card Blog and Card Patterns. It was make a mosaic and the sketch
over at CP. I still love Basic Grey's Urban Prairie and thought it would look great in the
mosaic. I used a Marvey 3/4 inch for the squares. The sentiment is part of a group of
rub-ons from K&Co's Cut N Paste group. I love all the scrolls. The base is Basic Grey black,
I used the shell embossing folder on the end with the hydrangea petals.

Thanks so much for taking a peak. Have a wonderful turn of the globe no matter where you are!

Not quite sure how the type got so funky...so sorry!
