Happy Place

My hubby and I went away for the past few days to celebrate our Anniversary, that will have to be for another post, but today I will share the card I made him.

I used another calendar image from my daily coloring calendar.  Once again I colored it, glued it to cardstock to give it a little more thickness and cut it out, put it on top of a background I made sponging on my distress ink.



Daily coloring calendar image- colored w/markers and fussy cut
Background using Tumbled glass ink using homemade cloud stencil
My Favorite things -- More Essential sentiments stamp set

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by today!!

This is a most adorable image and just the sort I love the most, I think. Whimsical and cute and happy! Beautifully colored and fantastic sky background. Happy anniversary! You've been having lots of get aways and I think that's wonderful. We had such a hard time just putting three days together (four, counting the day we came home), and I've had so much catching up to do since we got back. It makes me feel a little bogged down here with the house and garden and all the business to take care of. Something has to change!

Sweetest "love message" ever! I have not mastered the distress ink backgrounds like you have, and this one is not only beautiful, but reminds me that when we are with the one we love, we are definitely sky-high and above the day-to-day ickies. They are, indeed, our happy place, and those ickies become lovely moments when shared with them. So glad you had a chance to celebrate happily. Your little birds are adorable, and beautifully colored, and the little lemons are darling! hugs, de
