Life really is good!  So, are you livin’ good?  Mmmm mmmm mmmmmm!  I was livin’ good when I was stamping today–I had this idea in my head for the rain (we get a lot of that out here in the PNW, altho, not nearly as much as SE Alaska does, to be sure . . . ) and "Life is good" (both coming Mar. 31st.   . . . or Apr. 1st . . .  I forget which . . .No worries–it would only be a one day difference, eh?! *snarf*!).

Anyhoo, I’m feelin’ a bit smug that I finally got the idea in my head down onto paper.  Took me only about, oh . . . 4 tries!  ROTFLMBO!

It’s all about the process, baby!

This is a variation on a color combo I’d used on a previous Easter design.  I just really liked it–earth-toned, but, in a very subtle kinda way.  I highlighted the raindrops with the Clear Glaze Pen, and the flowers and "sprouts" (seaweed) were outlined quickly with the Spica Twinkle Pens.

And, then, I got to "doodlin’ " . . . *chuckle*  Oh, a little stroke here, and a few dots there, and I ’bout wrecked it, goin’ too far.  But, I think it turned out alright!  I likey!

I stamped today!!!  Yay for me! (arms wrapped around self, *grin*)
