Life is complicated and messy, but surprising and wonderful all at the same time. It’s so easy to become negative with all the chaos around us, but you can choose to be happy.
I will be 49 in March. That sounds so strange! Midlife, middle age…the wrong side of forty! Eh, it’s just a number. I hit a turning point in my life this year and I choose to focus on happiness for the next half of it. It’s very simple, if it doesn’t feel good/right I don’t want to do it. It may sound selfish, but if I walk away from an encounter feeling good, I bet the other person(s) feels pretty good too. That sounds more like giving to me! Happiness is contagious and it is so easy to spread. Think happy thoughts and you will fly!
Today’s post is part of the Cupcake Inspirations cream, rose and black color theme challenge!
A Day for Daisies is our sponsor for this challenge and is generously providing a $12 gift certificate to our randomly chosen winner.
I used A Day for Daisies Penguin Flight digital stamp for the focal image on my card.
I typed up the sentiment in Photoshop Elements and added it to the document with the penguin digital image to create my card panel.
I printed on tan mixed media paper and colored the images with colored pencils and blended with gamsol and a paper stump.
I liked this so much I made another one in a different color scheme!
