Jenny's Zen!
This is a partial showing of the large background stamp by Serendipity's DT member Jenny Gropp! Jen's Zen Stamp has been created from a wonderfully detailed drawing that Jenny has done. So talented!

  "Be Happy" fit together great with this fun stamp. The new Be Kind, Be Happy, Be Well Stamp can be used as one saying or individually as I have done here.
