Color Me Happy

This is how I felt all day today. Happy, Happy, Happy (yes, we've been watching some Duck Dynasty).

 Kiddos are back at school, and I have three whole days to myself before I head back to work. I had a very productive day. I cleaned (even moved the couch to vacuum UNDER it-yuck!), did some laundry, ran 2 miles, did the dishes, watched an episode of Downton Abby (I'm in the middle of season 2 ♥), AND got a little crafty. Yep...jammed a lot in on my first day, and loved every minute of it. 

While this turned out to be a clean and simple card, I wasn't all that clean creating it. I got my fingers rather messy with some paints.  

I used the current Retro Sketch and right away I knew some colorful strips of paints would do  the trick for the paneled background. Plus I wanted to use another new-to-me Reverse Confetti stamp set, Dream in Color. 

A cute die-cut butterfly (MFT Die-namics), stamped with a whole lotta dots and this card was done. 

Keeping this short. I'm off to catch my boys getting off the bus. I hope I only see smiles, especially from my first grader after his first full day of school. I'm anxious to hear how lunch went. 

hugs to you all!
