I stumbled into a sale on a while ago, and found this Mo Manning stamp from Penny Black at a super price. Funny how some stamps just speak to you. This one said "happy" to me! And I absolutely loved the accompanying sentiment.

The little girl and her bear were colored with Copics and matted with avocado stock. The sentiment was stamped in Chocolare and die cut and embossed  with a Spellbinders classic circle. It too was matted in avocado. A teeny sliver of the avocado was adhered along with a few melon colored pears and a bit of melon satin ribbon. A few more pearls were added to the image and both were adhered to a piece of DP that was hanging out in my scrap bin. Popped the lot onto a white card base and there you go.

This is going into my Operation Write Home stash. I'm hoping whoever gets it will smile as much when they receive it as I did when I made it. And I hope they hear "happy" too!
