It doesn't take a whole lot to make me happy. There are lots of little things that just brighten my day.
One example is that I was able to get away this last weekend to a rubber stamp convention in Carson, CA. This stamp convention has been around for many years and, while I can't go everytime, I sure do try to make it as often as possible because it just plain makes me happy!!! Just walking in the door and taking a deep breath is wonderful.
The card I wanted to share today is an example of "simple things". I like to create cards with photos that I have taken. I thought this field of red poppies was so stunning that it could just stand on it's own. I wanted to add one, very simple accent and so I played with one of my Kreaxions 4-in-1 border punches to see what I could come up with.
Here is a close-up of my little row of punched designs.
I used the Fountain punch - #922. After I punched a long border strip, I took my paper cutter and cut right down the middle of the design. This left an interesting little piece that I thought was just what I needed.
Gotta share a couple photos too...
I have been planting a whole lot more flowers and plants in our yard lately and so I wanted to capture some of the blooms with drops from a recent rain on them.More little things that just plain make me happy!!!
