Happy Day / ESS Sketch #32

I made this card for a friend who took her daughter, grandma, and mom to the Home and Garden Expo; something that she has always wanted to do - and ended up winning a drawing for a VERY NICE, VERY SHINY, BBQ just in time to await those FUN filled Summer Days!

She is still in shocked that she won, and I waned to congratulate her when I see her this Friday.

Here is my take on this week's sketch:

As luck will also have it, I wanted to make a card for this week's Eat Sleep Stamp ESS Sketch #32; so I decided to take Tracy Clemente's sketch for a spin and make my card:)

I have had this Happy Day Animals set from Hero Arts for over a year now, thanks to my favorite enabler Tracy F.; this was another one of those impulsive buys - so when I saw this flowers stamp again as I was picking out which HA stamps to use, I knew I had to ink it and this sheep jumping over them caught my eyes as well. I tried to ink my own clouds, from a negative of a scalloped circle - came out pretty good. The sentiment also comes in the set and it worked perfectly - a happy day she must have had!

Thanks for stopping by and Happy Tax Day! :).... positive thinking!
