Find Your Happy

Is that just not the greatest sentiment EVER?!  I absolutely LOVE it!  I thought it would go well with a simple design, so I used it on this card.

Find Your Happy

I kept it simple, but added just a touch of elegance with the pretty little Allegro Corner die cut from Simon Says Stamp.

I have another card for you today, too! This one really utilized the elements in the Simon Says April 2013 Card Kit. Kits are awesome like that! Everything is gathered and coordinated for you making life SO EASY sometimes! Love it!

With All My Heart

What I particularly love about kits is that, at least for me, they tend to challenge you to step outside your norms. I have been sharing cards I've made using the Simon Says April card kit all week and I had SO MUCH FUN creating these cards! I used WAY more patterned paper than I normally do, there is far less simple white and simple black than one usually sees on my cards, and yet... they are all still ME! And I LOVE that! This card, for example, I used an envelope on my card! DUDE! I totally wouldn't normally do that, but I love it! And what a great place to tuck a little gift card! I did add the Harrington Vine die, and I did use a sentiment from the Beautiful Words set instead of the the Happy Every Day set that came with the kit... wanna know a secret? That's TOTALLY OKAY, DUDES! You can mix it up! You can have fun with it! But what is awesome is that a kit is a super fantabulous source of inspiration and I do so love that! It's pretty great. Just sayin'.

So, try one! That's my advice to you! You can subscribe if you want, or you can maybe just pick up the May Kit to give it a shot! It's a GORGEOUS one, that is certain!!!

Have a Happy, folks! Or... perhaps today... Find Your Happy! :)
