Yippee Skippee

I love new, fun, sentiment stamp set, Yippee Skippee! This sentiment, 'You can never have too much happy', is how I live my life. I try to fill my life with as much happy as I can, and my daily goal is to make people smile!

Create with Connie and Mary has a simple, yet challenging (for me!) card layout this week. Since I love a challenge, I decided to go for it.

The idea of duplicating the word happy came from a sample in the Stampin' Up! catalog. I used my Stamp-a-ma-jig, and Stampin' Write markers to ink up, and repeat the word happy in several different colors.
