"Happiness Blooms From Within"

Good Tuesday, April 24, 2018 to all my friends, followers, visitors and viewers.
I hope you are not having a rainy day in your neighborhood...I am...and it is a good one.  It washes the pollen away and it makes for a very relaxing day.  Tomorrow, I'll be able to breathe better without my allergy meds.
Very calming and an encouragement to craft all day or until I get tired.  I'll put on some soft music and cut , glue, stamp and color away.  That's my happy!!!
Speaking of "happy"...my inspiration for today comes from a "Spring Market" (Carta Bella) sentiment..."happiness Blooms From Within"
Take a look at the card I made:

" Mother's Day Or Any Other Special Occasion Card"

Hello friends, followers, visitors and viewers.
Welcome back from an enjoyable weekend.  I hope you had a great time doing something fantastic.
Today, I'm sharing another card that can be used for any occasion.  It depends on what you want your sentiment to reflect.  I've photographed this card both ways...with and without a sentiment.  If I choose to use it in the next couple of weeks...it will become a Mother's Day Card for someone.  Or, it will be saved for later.
