Make Your Own Happiness
I was feeling particularly minimalist when I made this card with just two stamps from Hero Arts. It's totally flat, not an embellishment to be seen, not even a half bead or pearl or rhinestone. The card is standard, PTI white base and I didn't even round the corners. There's absolutely nothing "special" about it. So why do I love it so much?
Three reasons. One: it's simple and clean. (Bet you did NOT see that coming!) Two: the branch flows across the card to the sentiment gracefully. Three: the sentiment makes me smile because I truly believe that doing what you love is the greatest source of happiness. Happiness ought to be a verb.
I challenge you to make your own happiness today. Then, share that happiness with someone else. Because happiness is like love: the more you give it away, the more you have.
And speaking of giving away, don't forget to enter the PTI set give-away here. The deadline is Friday at 9:00 PM EDST.
BABY UPDATE: Little Grady is doing well, though occasionally the doctors have to give him a little extra oxygen. Tomorrow, I'll have more photos up on my Questioning blog (see sidebar for link). My sister is also doing well and wanted me to tell you all how appreciative she is of your prayers and good wishes. She feels a peace about the whole experience that isn't normal for her...she'd usually be freaking out! She credits everyone's prayers for her unusual calm. Thank you.
