What is this tiny leaved ground cover?

What is this tiny leaved perennial ground cover? The leaves are smaller than a dime and somewhat fleshy, and in an interesting pattern. It forms a low dense mat perhaps only 1-2" high. It is thriving in a wet fairly shady bed. Its beautiful and I may want to get some more, or divide it somehow, to spread it to other parts of the same bed.

Many thanks,

It looks like a very low growing ornamental thyme I used to grow in Zone 6. However, your description that it's "thriving in a wet fairly shady bed" aren't the conditions that it allegedly likes.

Not a thyme. I think it's Sedum 'John Creech'.
