For my card today, I used some of the new cacti stamps.  From left to right, they are:
Rabbits Hair C19187
 
I then added a saying from a wonderful new set called Everyday Quotes 2 (3153-XL)
 
To color my card, I started with 140lb watercolor paper, stamped the cacti with black versafine, and then painted everything with Peerless Watercolors.  Here is a close up:
 
 
 
I hope everyone has a good day.  It really is a good day to have a good day!
