Happiness Is A Habit

I have enjoyed the Clean & Simple Stamping blog a lot, and found a great layout here that I used as the basis for these 2 cards. I've been meaning to use Hibiscus Burst together with my Dark Chocolate, and this layout just seemed perfect for it. I'm not totally sure about the cream ribbon on the sympathy card. I wanted to try it, even though it just kind of blends in. It is a sympathy card so I'm not going for "WOW!" But I don't know if it's just too blended in. Any opinions? And the happiness card just made me laugh! Are you ever just working along, and something comes to you that you haven't thought of in forever!?!? Well, as soon as I stamped the "happiness" I could hear my mom's voice from childhood. She had a little saying, "Happiness is a habit!" And I haven't thought of that in ages, and it made me laugh out loud!

I like the cream ribbon on the card...it looks really nice! I love the color combo and the layout,too.

Lots of things remind me of my mom...lots of things I say or do come from her! I always said that would never happen..but it did. I have the SU stampset Eight Great greetings and I laugh at the one that says: "I just realized I turned into my mother...{lucky me!}" Thats so tue for me!

These are so pretty, I like them both, the one with the cream ribbon makes it a little more formal! They are both fantastic!

I think they are both lovely. I guess the white does blend a bit, but because it's a wide ribbon with a nice, big bow, I think it still stands out in an understated way. Both of these are very nice.
