oh! happy day

Did you ever have a song stuck in your head and you keep humming or singing it over and over again? That's what happened after my family saw this card that I propped up on a table after it was done.





Yep, they started singing the gospel line over and over and over....So I figured it must have made them happy. Which is this week's cue card over at CASology. Happy.


The Noah alphabet set and distress inks were still on my craft table, and I stamped up the sentiment in one try, overlapping some letters, and not really worrying about the distressed look.

I overstamped the words with the mesh background stamp in Antique Linen and the card was done. This could be a "happy anything" card--birthday, anniversary, graduation....a happy card!

I'm hoping this isn't my last blog post. Tomorrow my daughter and her boyfriend are taking me hiking on the Diamond Head trail because they "think I can do it"I'm a little nervous and excited at the same time. Stay tuned....and wish me luck!

  3. Love the way you overlapped the letters and made them large and bright. Stamping the background over the letters is a unique technique I will have to try.
