Celebrate Today

Every day is a special day.  I truly believe that.  
Every day should be savored in some 
way - after all, we woke up, and that's 
not a given.  I had a stroke before I even 
hit 40 years old, and ever since, 
I feel the need to "Celebrate Today".  
Right after having the stroke, 
I would wake up in the morning and tentatively 
crack one eye open - yep - still alive.  Great!!
Now, not every day is the best.  
And it shouldn't be.  If every day was the best 
day ever, then what would we have for 
comparison?  LOL
If it's your birthday, then you REALLY want to
 be sure to Celebrate Today.  Joining in with 
the Sunday Stamps and Fusion Card challenges, 
I had a fun sketch and great colors.  The patterns and variety of colors were invigorating!  The circles were a blast to figure out - I even covered a piece of scrap paper with Washi Tape and punched circles out with that.
I can't wait to celebrate someone's birthday 
by sending these off in the mail...

Thanks so very much for stopping by ~ be sure 
to get inky today!

  5. I agree that we must be grateful for the many blessing we all take for granted. Just having life, food. a place to live, etc. Love your dotty take of this weeks sketch challenge with all the different papers and circle sizes. Thanks so much for joining Sunday Stamps! :)

  6. Hi Julia! You're right, it's so important to appreciate and make the most of every day. I'm always telling myself "enjoy this moment" - I always want to rush off and do something else that it's hard to appreciate the "now". Great card! I love the primary colors and the circles add such a fun element to your design!
