Make your own happiness!


Love this sentiment from Hero Arts.  Paired it with a stamp I picked up recently in Crafty Alley in Killarney.  It's a 2005 Hero Arts stamp that I inked up with distress inks, spritzed with water and had fun with!  I then coloured the pearls with copics to match the textured cardstock.
