I'm Happy

Do you know what makes me happy? Many things, actually! My family! Good friends! Creative fun! Starbucks (when I get a chance - which is only when I travel, since there isn't one near me)! And yes, TREASURE HUNTS make me happy, too!


On a recent Treasure Hunt, I found some items with potential, so I bought them.




A partial roll of Hallmark ribbon - cost 10 cents

An assortment of wool felt scraps/yardage - cost 75 cents




hmmmmmmmmmm....





I made a happy card that included a pretty layered felt flower!






I like it, but it needs something inside...







Oh happy day!











Happy Definition: October Afternoon stamps inked with Stampin' UP! Tempting Turquoise and Yo Yo Yellow

Yea! Bravo! I love it! I just stopped by a yard sale a couple of weeks ago and got a whole BOX of treasures!!!! Isn't it just so fun, and amazing the things people will sell for .25!!! Lucky for us :D

Great card and a great find! I should go hunting with you as I do not find such neat things--though yesterday I got two small Tuperware bowls that go with some we have for 50 cents and the video Casablanca for $1.
