You Bring Out The Happy In Me

I've got a sweet card for you today that should put a smile on your face.  We live in such a negative world that it's nice when we can balance that with positive thoughts and ideas.  I read the Bible almost every day and I also refer to a publication that helps me meditate on a scripture daily.  Today's text is from Proverbs 4:23.   

"More than all else that is to be guarded, safeguard your heart."

Our heart is our inner self.  Our desires, thoughts, motivations and goals.  Our friends have a great influence on our hearts.  I'm in the process of meeting and getting to know several new friends.  I made this card to honor a friend and let her know that I love her bubbly, positive personality.  She is a sharer with me in Christian worship and I think we are going to become close.


She loves pink and I love hearts so I blended the two with the paper I chose.  I die cut the pretty flowers and layered the petals to create a fuller effect.  How about the pretty brad I had in my stash for the center?  Nice touch I think.  I love the sentiment.  I'm very glad that her positive outlook on the future helps me be happy too.


Why not try to be positive and maybe you can bring out the happy in someone else.
