All Occasion Card Using CTMH Where Happiness Blooms Stamp & Thin Cuts

Hello friends!  I hope this post finds you well; and that you are finding time to craft or at least do something fun and/or relaxing.  My husband was off a couple extra days this week; so I was able to spend some quality time with him; which seems to be rare lately.  

We were able to go to see a comedy at the theater on Thursday; which is very rare.  LOL!  It was very funny; so very relaxing.  They now have reclining seats at our favorite theater; so that was nice as well.  Plus, you know I have to have popcorn and soda; which is also very rare for me.  It was a good day.

It took me several days to get this card created; but it finally came together on Friday night.  We were gone most of the day; but I worked on it after we got home.  I am so in love with this stamp and thin cuts (dies) set.  I have so many ideas in my head; that it made it harder for me to come up with my first card.  I hope you like it.  

This is my favorite of the new papers in our New CTMH Idea book.  The papers are CTMH "Sweet Girl" and CTMH stamp and die set is called "Where Happiness Blooms".  The sentiments are from the same stamp set.  These colors were hard to photograph; but I did the best I could to get them as close to what they are on the papers, etc.
