happiness in the little things

Hi Everyone!  Thanks so much for your sweet comments about the last card I posted.  I love hearing from all of you!  I'm back to share another card today.  We've been passing around lots of fun germs in our house so I'm a little later than planned getting this up. 

For this card, I used the pretty Miss Mary Contrary image from illustrator Elisabeth Bell (available through Whimsy Stamps).  I used some papers from Maja Designs.  (Love their papers!)

I colored the image with copic markers.  After assembling my card, I added lots of flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts.  The vine/leaf die under the flowers is the Vine Die set.

I used a sentiment from the Magical Mini Letter Seals sentiment set.  I use this set so much!

I've been gathering ideas for homeschooling my preschooler.  Anyone have any great sites or insight to share?

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

I love the shape of this one and I am always inspired by your coloring. I have missed your posts but I can't imagine you having much time to yourself. Trust me, some day you will have more time to yourself than you want.
