International Day of Happiness

Hi everyone!

I know I am a bit behind, but Thursday, March 20, was the International Day of Happiness. I love that song that Pharrell Williams does from the "Despicable Me 2" movie, called "Happy". If you do a search for you can find a web-site that is 24-hours of this song along with people from all over the world doing their own happy dances. It is just fun to watch and listen to. Check it out sometime!

 I don't know about you, but I think I am a pretty happy person most of the time. One of the things that makes me happy is being able to make cards. One of the cards I made recently just fits this day perfectly. Here it is:

To Blog, or Not to Blog...

What a scary question! I have thought about starting a blog for a long time, but I was just so unsure about how to start. So I told myself, "Just start!"

I am an avid paper crafter, and I love to make cards and scrapbook, so that is mostly what you will see here. I'm also a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, and I love the relationships I have made because of this. If you are ever interested in what I do, feel free to contact me. I also have a family and a couple of cats, so they might appear in here from time to time as well.

I hope you will enjoy my posts, and that you might be inspired to create something of your own. Thanks for stopping by!

For my first project, I thought I would post a birthday card, since this is basically, the "birth" of my blog.

All supplies are Stampin' Up! unless specified otherwise.
 Stamps: Label Love, Gorgeous Grunge, Everything Eleanor; Cardstock: Blushing Bride, Coastal Cabana, So Saffron, and Whisper White; Inks: Blushing Bride, Coastal Cabana, VersaMark; Embossing Folder: Alphabet Press; Punch: Artisan Label; Accessories: Big Shot, Circles #2 Originals Die, Coastal Cabana Stretch Ruffle Trim, White Stampin' Emboss Powder, Dimensionals, Sticky Strip
