Everyday Happiness

I've been so bad lately and really haven't created anything new.  I need to remedy that pretty quick - if I can even remember how to do it!  Sometimes life just gets in the way of things we love to do.

I created this a couple of weeks ago and since I don't have anything else to put up for "show and tell", I'll thrown this one in.  I used the Summer Afternoon set from SU and colored it in Copics.  The patterned paper is from Doodle Bug.  The ribbon - I have no earthly idea why I added a piece of GREEN ribbon to this!  YIKES!  It's a pretty nice looking green color but doesn't really go with anything else on the card except maybe the grass (what little there is)!  A button, twine, and a little doodling around the tag finished out the card.  The colors on this really do make me happy though.

Thanks for stopping by........and back to the drawing board now!

I really like this card a whole lot. I love it when you doodle around your cards. I cannot seem to get that particular doodle down pat. I also really like the green and you can and should do anything you like when making your cards. LOL There is also green in your striped paper so I happen to think is was a great choice. The image is adorable and very well colored. Enjoy your day.

Always love seeing tags on card fronts and this one is so cute. I think the green ribbon brings out the foliage on the plants and is a great color choice. Fun doodles too.

Well since green is my very favorite color, I think it should be on everything! :) I like the bold pop of color! Super coloring - very serene, Lynn!

I love this summery card. Beautiful coloring and I love the green ribbon. I have had to learn as well that everything does not have to match. My friend tells me that is "Old School". Well I am old....lol
Great inspiration with the tag. I need to try that...Hugs, joann sassy raggedy

Your green ribbon brings out the green in the flowers in the wheelbarrow, girl! And it's very pretty against the striping and the pink dots too! (so there!) This is such a cute image, and love the tag shape of it. (never know what to do with tags!). Cute card, and your colors DID make me happy. I like it - a lot!!! TFS & Hugs

I like the green. There is green in your stiped paper and in the grass.

I make things too mitchy matchy and I am trying to learn to pull a random colour out of a card and use it for accent...you have done that very well here.

Great card.

Love the pink : ) The Dp is great and love the sweet image! The doodling round the edge is a fun touch and I LOVE the ribbon- fab card!

Carol L said...

What a beautiful every day card with a great sentiment! I like the green ribbon that perfectly compliments all the pink, and your doodling looks so great too!

NanaConnie said...

Yep, the green ribbon works perfectly with the green in the striped dp (which I love!). the green grass, and the flowers, Lynn! Wonderful pink dp with those teeny-tiny polka dots.

Joan Ervin said...

I like the green ribbon, Lynn...it matches the green stripes in the paper...such an adorable image, too, and I love your doodling. I need to do that more on my cards cause I love the look!!!
