You Make Me Happy

When I was a little girl, my parents always sang me a song before bedtime. My brother's song was Rock-a-bye Baby and mine was You Are My Sunshine. Whenever I see quotes from that song, it takes me back to those nights when I was tiny. I haven't actually gotten to see my parents for a little over a year now since we live on opposite sides of the country. I guess I'm feeling a little sentimental...

Which is perfect because the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge is to get "get sentimental".

I recently purchased the falling rain background stamp from Simon and I was super excited to use it with Abby's Spring Showers. I was looking through my stamps for a sentiment and stumbled on this one and it was like fate.

I first stamped the sentiment and heat embossed it. Then I masked off the sentiment to protect it and I stamped and heat embossed the background stamp with clear glitter embossing powder. It's super shiny and pretty in real life. Plus, I added glossy accents to her boots so they look wet.

I tried to capture it in a picture, but it's really hard. Let's just say that I'm pretty happy with it!
