Happy Accidents

Happy Thursday! :) Today is all about Unity! Once again, I LOVE the new kit of the month! There are some AWESOME images, but the sentiments are equally as wonderful. :) For this card, I wanted to use my favorite sentiment from the set. "Look at all the happy things that happen by accident." SUCH a rich, true statement. :)

I used this fun and funky tree image from the February kit of the month and stamped it directly over the sentiment to make it all merge as one. Then... I topped the tree with fun little buttons and gems. :)

Thanks for coming to visit! My bff just called and has offered to help me spring clean my house. (God love her!) I've been sick for almost a week and am finally feeling like 'me' again --- but my house looks like a bomb went off. It's scary. Frightening. And... she's the ONLY one I would allow to even witness such a thing. Good friends are like sisters. :) I think we've got our work cut out for us today. ;) Hope you have a good one!
