Remember Happiness

Hi friends!  Happy Tuesday! I'm popping in today to share a quick little CAS card I made for this week's CAS235 challenge over on Splitcoast.  The theme is road trip and it made me think of this quote in the Happiness Found set... Happiness is found along the way - not at the end of the road.   True story, peeps!  Even in the toughest times of caring for two colicy newborns, every once in a while, Mark and I would just start laughing because it was so preposterous that two little things could make SOOOOOOO much noise!  Those giggles amidst the tears are some of the things I remember most as my mind has started doing that amazing thing where it forgets the bad and remembers the good.

For the card, I grabbed a scrap of paper from my scrap bin and adhered to a soft sky card base.  I stamped the sentiment in black across both layers, then went back and only inked up the happiness with soft sky ink and slightly offset it, for a little shadowing.  I added a couple soft sky leaves stamped in the corner (from the same Happiness Found set).  Then for some reason, I really wanted a button on the layout.  So I found a black one and then decided it needed something to "ground" it.  I looked up from my desk and there was a set of stickers in my Project Life bin staring at me, so I pulled off the remember one, clipped one end to make it a banner and tucked behind the button.  I wanted it to say always remember, but I couldn't find an always sticker in my collection, so I pulled out the Take Note set and used the alphabet strip and a black marker to stamp each letter individually, then cut out and popped up on dimensionals.  Easy peasy, and such a nice reminder to enjoy life as it is happening.

That's all from my little corner of the world.  If you haven't taken advantage of Verve's Anni-VERVE-sary sale yet, there are still a few more days to pick up some steals!
