One of those people is my hubby.
We have been married nearly nineteen years, and have endured some struggles like most couples do. It is the hardships we have faced, the grief we have shared and the life we have forged together that has brought us closer and made us stronger as a couple. He is the key to my Joy in so many different ways, and most recently I have loved watching and discovering a new side to him as we care for our foster son. Alex has been with us now for six months and it's definitely been a roller coaster in emotions. This new chapter in our lives has been a time of some frustration and fighting but mostly lots of fun and fulfillment. It has both of us presently focusing on the 'where to from here?' and there are definitely some plans in the pipework. One of which will see my craft room getting a full make-over..........yeah!
Anyway here is a card which was inspired by my thoughts and ramblings this morning as well as having a couple of challenges in mind.
Stamps: Unity Stamp Co Key to Joy
Ink: Stampin' Up!
Other: Yellow Gelato
The first challenge is over at CAS on Sunday. They are asking for One Layer Wonders this week and upon seeing one of the examples from Nancy on their DT, I had to case her card design but have added a bit more of the 'messy me' twist as I like to call it.
My color choices of the Pink, Turquoise and Lavender tones were inspired by the latest challenge at Cupcake Inspirations. After stamping my flowers with these colors I felt it needed something a little bit more to tie it all together, so I got out my yellow Gelato and scribbled around the design. Bright colors make me happy so given this card is all about the Key to my Joy I really couldn't resist it.
I am also thinking that something similar to this would make a great journal page to record what it is that makes me happy! What is it that makes you Happy?
