My card layout was inspired by the Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge #355!  Word Art Wednesday is always asking for uplifting messages, so I'm linking up there, too!


The July Verve Release is absolutely AMAZING!  Today, I'm showing off the new Happy Place stamp set and it's coordinating Happy Doodles Die Set!  The previously released Flag It Die Set and Banner Bundle Die Set were added for some interest, too!  Don't you just love the detail of the butterfly and the mix of whimsical fonts?!


Thanks so much for stopping by the stage!
