Wishing You Happiness


I hope everyone enjoyed their holiday weekend. I decided to take the full weekend off and did not even post yesterday! WOW! I did make three cards yesterday late in the day, but for the most part I was taking a break. This card was inspired by Dawn's Color Challenge for this week.

Here are some photos I have forgotten to share with you:
I hope you enjoy the pictures. Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great Tuesday!
