The Happy Forest

Hola Chicas! It is a gorgeous day! And I'm wasting it away in the house. As soon as I'm done here, I'm out! Buster and I are heading for the trail. But in the mean time, here's the Happy Forest by Stamping Bella. And quite the happy looking little forest it is, wouldn't ya say?
I used Julee's Mojo Monday sketch (only a day late, WooHoo!) to show off my YUMMY new Basic Grey Sultry paper. This may be the first thing I've ever bought that I found too pretty to actually cut into. It took me a whole three days to get over that. LOL. It seems to be selling out everywhere, but I see Julee must have just listed some at Verve Visual, here. The image is colored with markers and a watercolor brush.
Hope you're having a happy sunshiny day.
Ingredients:
Stamps-happy forest (Stamping Bella)
Paper-chocolate chip, pixie pink (SU); sultry (Basic Grey); watercolor

I love, love, LOVE this Happy Forest! This is the second time I've seen it used and I'm absolutely SMITTEN with it! And you combined it with the new Sultry paper which I'm expecting in my mailbox soon. Gosh, I haven't even seen every piece of it yet. Love this one. Love the image in the card below, also. Wow! These are some FUN stamps! Thanks for getting me all excited, Bethany! I needed that!
