will make others happy too.- Anne Frank

Isn’t that the truth?!

Attitude can be infectious, and you certainly get back what you project.

I’ve been busy caring for my mom these days as she undergoes her Chemo & Radiation treatments. I’ve stayed positive and kept her focused. Each day I am certain to point out what is GOOD.  We don’t look at HOW many days of treatment are left, but rather the day that we put behind us, that gets us closer to our goal- a CURE!

I’m proud of my mom. She has stayed in a positive frame of mind, and has been strong and brave. She has managed to keep from getting too ill and is getting the rest she needs. I’ve enjoyed the time we’ve spent together.

That being said during her treatments I’ve been able to design LOTS of stuff for the upcoming releases, and turned my STRESS into creativity!!  SADLY the hospital allows NO INTERNET access, due to security issues (I think that is crazy because other hospitals allow it-but whatever). While most my time spent has been computer/file base, I did have time to whip this card up.

We all need a HAPPY card. They can serve so many purposes 😀

I used our latest stamp set release: So Fortunate. I LOVE this set to pieces.

The Cherry Blossoms are colored with a Prisma Color Pencil. I stamped and cut out several, select flowers for some additional dimension. I tore the bottom, and sponged it with some craft white cardstock.

I paired the Happiness Symbol with a sentiment from So Sentimental. I also took the flourish from that set, and stamped it onto vellum cardstock, and layered it along the bottom.

I love the simplicity of this.

I have a few other projects I hope to post this week, as (if) time allows. I’m already preparring projects for our February Release-which is sure to make you all happy 😀

Well thanks for checkin in here! Hopeful I’ll be around more in the next week or so.

Till then
