Sending You Happy Thoughts with Echo Park

I was sitting here this morning and reading the news on my computer, I then went to twitter and read some of the tweets I had received, I then decided to go look at my facebook account. Have you noticed lately how many sad situation we are dealing with in our personal lives, the states we live in, our country. It seems never ending. So today I am sending everyone this card that I made. I am sending you "Happy Thoughts". We do have so much to be thankful for, freedom, live, liberty, music, the birds singing, sunshine or rain. We have so much to be thankful for. I learned along time ago that we make a choice on whether we have joy and happiness. I try to choice joy because if we truly look around us there is a small measure of joy that we can fine in each day.

For instance right now as I am sitting here "trying" to type this up my little grand daughter is trying to convince my Yorkie to come to her. It is not working though, even with her trying to pick him up, telling him how cute he is and her hugging on him, he will not go with her. How can I not have joy in seeing that persistence. So I hope everyone has a "Happy Day" in some small way today, this week. Just take the time to look around.

NOW.... on to my card. I made it with the Echo Park "Be Mine" collection and SRM Stickers. I made a small envelope for the front of the card and place two of the Admit Tags in the envelop and tied some twine around it before I placed it to the front of my card. I distressed all of my pieces with the Tim Holtz distress tool and added a few staples to the card after I got it together
On the inside I added a journal block so I will have a place to write on since my card base is black. Hope you enjoy my card and remember to "Think Happy Thoughts".
