Happy Thoughts

Welcome to Monday.  Hope you had a great weekend.  I am still recovering but was able to sit long enough to stamp a bit yesterday and played along with the Featured Stamper challenge at Splitcoast.and also the challenge at Addicted to CAS where the keyword is 'FRIEND'.
Creating my background was quick, easy and fun.  First I inked up my acrylic block with Distress inks in blues then sprayed with water and stamped onto my cardstock.  I then wrapped elastic bands around my block, inked again then stamped over the blue.  I added the sentiment from Penny Black and the die cut flowers.  Thanks so very much and coming by to take a look.

Supplies:  stamps; Penny Black/ Distress inks/ die cut/ acrylic block
