happy!

Managed to sneak in the Waltzingmouse sketch challenge (with a little lot of liberty!!) and also use the Play Date Cafe colors for this week. Not sure where my mind was at the time... left brain analytical-follow the sketch, right brain...think abstractly, LOL!! I am actually ambidextrous (one of those lefties that bats left- throughs a ball right- actually know my brain is ambidextrous-have had my brain scanned and I know this!)
It was for a research study, being a guinea pig, did I mention I don't like MRIs- little claustrophobic-analytical left side comes in handy in those moments!!

Okay... this is a little different (right brain, if you're following me) and not exactly where those buttons are supposed to be but, I was having fun playing. Don't you ADORE those buttons- I did anywho and they didn't work in a circle and I also ADORED Claires' doily (Waltzingmouse Stamps) sooo... it made me happy to use those buttons with Claires' doily!! Sentiment is from Waltzingmouse Stamps Say It Loud. Papers are MME Follow Your Heart Be Happy papers...okay, now I could be really weird and talk 'karma"- cause I didn't really remember the name of the paper at the time I was playing!! Hopefully, y'all don't think I'm tooo crazy at this point!!!

Kellys' sketch... which I love and will try to left brain it in the future!!












Used the Play Date Cafe colors of salmon, pink, and aqua. Love this combo too!










Thanks for stopping by!! Appreciate all the kind words!!

PS I'm reworking this card and reusing the elements (those gorgeous buttons)... come back later when the left brain is in control, hehehe!!
