Inspired by reading "The Happiness Project"

I did some major stamping yesterday and last night! It's amazing what some sun, 60 degrees, and spring break will do to your creative juices! They were a-flowing!!

I've been reading this really interesting book by Gretchin Rubin called The Happiness Project - and the card I'm posting today was inspired by that book. Did you know bluebirds are a symbol of happiness? I knew it, but I just didn't know I knew it until Rubin reminded me of it in her book. (does that make sense?) Anyway, once I read about the author deciding to collect bluebirds (which is a really cute idea, by the way... if I didn't already collect owls, I'd consider joining her!) I had the bird image from Season of Friendship stuck in my head! I had to scoot downstairs and stamp this cute card!

  1. That book was a runner-up for my next book club choice. (Lost out to "How We Decide"). The author is from Kansas City, I believe! Cute card--love the bluebird!

  2. I love the colors that you used! Very pretty!

  3. What a great Spring card - love it! :)

  4. Love the card and the inspiration behind it... the fun spring colours are inspiring too!

  5. I haven't read that book - but I love what you did with the card! Terrific job! Love the ribbon, too!


Imagine a beep. Then leave me a message! I love hearing from you, thanks!
