Happy Hearts

Stamps: Hero Arts 'Happiness Messages'. Cardstock: Chocolate Chip, Kraft, Basic Grey 'Bittersweet' DP. Ink: Chocolate Chip. Accessories: heart punch, chocolate grosgrain ribbon, Basic Grey mini buttons.

This is one of my all-time favorite sentiments; whenever I see it I think of Madame Blueberry! Any other Veggie Tales fans out there? Here's some of the 'Thankful Heart' lyrics:

Because a thankful heart is a happy heart!
I'm glad for what I have,
Thats an easy way to start!

Out of the mouth of singing babes? It's definitely a worthwhile motto to live by.

This card may be CAS, but still manages to encompass two challenges:

Sweet Sunday sketch challenge #51; this is probably the closest I've ever come to exactly following a sketch!

Tuesday Morning sketch #28 is taking a break from sketches and challenging us to use buttons and bows; see the little mini buttons next to the sentiment?

Wishing you a happy heart kind of day!
