Be Inspired Blog Hop: Sunshine & Happiness

Be Inspired Design Team Blog Hop Header

Welcome to the Be Inspired Blog Hop!

This month’s theme is…..Sunshine & Happiness! I was in the mood to color and I think the images of the “From All of Us” stamp set are PERFECT for coloring, especially with Stampin’ Blends!

I have been on a distressing kick lately, I just can’t seem to let the edges stay clean…I have to mess them up a bit. 

What animal is your favorite of this image?  I love the turtle and the ostrich, their eyes make me giggle and bring me happiness!
