Get Your Happy

I couldn't let the month of sharing some of my favourite things with you without sharing one of my favourite High Hopes stamps with you! 

Classy Clydesdale was in one of the first new releases I got to play with as a design team member. 
Today's card is a reminder to be happy! My horse used to remind me of this every once and a while. If I was too stressed out or he felt I needed a laugh he would always do something to make walk over to the garbage can and pull a Tim Horton's coffee cup out of the garbage and stand there bopping it back and forth..........and many more stories believe me! 

Classy Clydesdale just looks so happy and seems to like to have fun so I thought he was perfect for my card. 

This week's card was started by making my background paper. I used some inks from stamping up and my ink blending tool and went to work. I added the mini butterfly ink splatter and cut out my pieces using a stitched rectangle die.
The stamp was coloured and fussy cut a very long time ago - it has been on the corner of my white board watching every move I make <wink> but I felt it was perfect for my card this week so voila! 
Some gingham ribbon, a wooden horseshoe and sparkly gumdrops - more of my favourite things <smile> finish off my card.
