A Happy Card

The MFPSpeedyTV Inspiration Challenge (Challenge #57) pictures are so GORGEOUS this week!



I would love to know where these places are so I could go visit! Wow!!! Here is my card:

I used the MFP Medallion Set. I mixed heat and stick powder with ultra fine glitter (a complete accident by the way - LOL) for the embossing and then sprayed my paper with Luminarte's Radiant Rain Shimmer Mist in Snapdragon. The sentiments with this set are super sweet so I just made the largest one into a banner. I gifted this to a friend yesterday (along with chocolate) and she smiled all day!

More on this sentiment: I think this sentiment is really spot on. I believe our thoughts control our health, the joy we experience in life, our relationships with others, the quality of work we do, our dreams (nightly and of the future), and even our weight. Studies show that gratefulness can increase your life (HERE is one link to a study on this). I think happy thoughts can do the same. What are your thoughts on this? Oh and HERE is a link to my favorite song which ties into this whole discussion.

Hope you will be inspired to come play too. You don't have to use and MFP image, it doesn't cost anything to join MFP Speedy TV if you aren't already a member (takes less than 4 minutes to join), and all you have to do is be inspired in some way by the image. Shirley always gives away some great MFP image as a prize as well.

Hugz!!!

  2. Your mistake came out beautiful. Isn't it nice that we are such great inventors? LOL. I really like that big bold sentiment and, yes, I completely agree with everything you said about our thoughts. I truly believe that if you have positive, happy thoughts, you will most likely have the same type of life, at least it works for me. Have a fabulous day. Out temps are going up into the 50's today. The last of our snow seems to be melted away. Soon we can get to planting things in the gardens which is always a great thing.

  3. Very pretty card, Nancy. Chocolates and a pretty card would make a person smile all day.
    I checked out the video and that was really what seemed to be a happy bunch of dancers.
