Key to Happiness

There are some great springtime colors over at the Moxie Fab World Tuesday Trigger: Bright Bite



Those cookies look delicious and the colors remind me of one of my favorite candies, wintergreen patties.  I always buy some pink and orange mints when we go to a fantastic candy shop in Ogunquit, Maine.  I wanted to recreate the colors in paint so I used my Twinkling H2'0s, and spread swatches of colors across the stamped area of this large Unity stamp.  It's from the same set as the stamps on my last post, called "Key to Joy".

I finished it off by adding a small key with some beautiful pink ribbon.  Don't you love that sentiment?
I am also entering this in the Skipping Stones Sketch Challenge 128.

It was a gorgeous day here in Massachusetts, and the birds in our yard were very busy.  It looks like we have at least 4 different types of birds nesting in and around the yard.  I will give you a cardinal update the next time I post, I want to take a picture of the nest.  You can read more about them in my previous post.
Thanks for stopping by!
