Just Another Card

Hi Everybody. . .don't forget to drop by my Card Inspired blog site, I posted a tutorial on a "Simple Tri-Fold" card.

This is a card I created with TAC's "the buzz" stamp set. Isn't this mosquito cute? I think it's a mosquito. I never thought a mosquito to ever be cute but this one is. Maybe it's a dragonfly. . .I'm not sure. . .what do you think it is?

I was just watching a segment on Good Morning America on the subject of "happiness". They said that our happiness level is 50% genetically predisposed meaning we have a set level of happiness that we tend to go back to regardless of our life situation. For example, if you were to win the lottery, your happiness level will rise dramatically but eventually with time you'll return to your "set level" regardless of your situation.

I read a few books on happiness. There's this interesting book called "the Science of Happiness". They compiled the results of a whole bunch of scientific studies on happiness together into one book and it said that people with a "hobby" are happier than those who don't have a hobby. It's no wonder I wake up happy every morning. . .:) LOL!

Hey, do any of you watch "John and Kate plus Eight"? I love that show. I once watched the series in a row for 4 hour. They had a marathon night of that show and I stayed up until 2:00 morning to finish up the marathon. That show cracks me up!

Paper: SU Bashful Blue, Close to Cocoa, DCWV designer paper

hi maria,

love your color combo on this one - and did you sew those stitches on? They are soooo straight!! Do you have a mini or a full sized sewing machine that you've used?

Anyways - I watch that show J&K + 8... don't you think J&K don't communicate well sometimes? I see him rolling his eyes.. then again, it could be the way they edit the show. They have a handful of kids, and it is just amazing what they have to go through everyday. I thank the Lord that I've only got 2.. .cause that would drive me up the walls!!!
