happy.



Happy Wednesday!

Here's a card that uses a bunch of new goodies:




































I popped into J's a couple weeks ago and was thrilled to see the Jillibean, Chilled Cucumber Soup collection!

See that cute Ellie?


Don't you love her expression?  It makes me oh-so-happy.

A big shout out to my bloggie friend, Evelin, who is the Sweet Stamp Shop's new illustrator.   I love seeing Evelin's watercoloring so that's what I used on this card.  Do you see the faint pink?  I popped some on her face and ears.

I used Divine Twine's solid black to add some fun texture to the card.  The happy die is one of my new Technique Tuesday purchases.



I was inspired by



Thanks so much for stoppin' by!
