Stamp lifted from my friend at work. Stampin Up paper, ink, background stamp. Classic inks and card stock- Only Orange, Yoyo Yellow, and Green Galore. On the Spot background stamp. Random alphabet set of stamps are from a garage sale I got approximately 12 years ago. The Pajama stamp is by Hampton Art Stamps. The ribbon is from Michael's.
Came home to make a card and here it is! Am going to give it to my friend who just got a job promotion.
The patterned paper is Guava Dots by Lasting Impressions. The stamps are a mix: top 3 words on the left and bottom 2 on the right are by Technique Tuesday called Wonderful You. The bottom two on the left are from Stampin Up sellabration set So Very, and the brackets at the bottom are by Fontwerks called Classy Bracket. The ink is classic ink by Stampin Up in Basic Black and Pink Passion. The ribbon is light pink organdy by Stampin Up. The flowers are Bling Blossoms by Imaginisce, the center is a pastel Rhinestone Brad by SEI.

Found this one on Wendy Sue Anderson's blog.
Needed this and what she had to say about happiness (on Feb 12) being a choice. After having a really rotten day at work yesterday. It is so hard to make happiness a choice in the middle of a bad day, but really that is what it is, a choice. I am trying hard to be happy in the middle of rotten days at work. The stress though is getting harder to smile through. I apologize in advance for not always having a smile on.

I rented a few movies Tuesday night, since it is the week before the Oscars. I figured I had better see a few of the movies before Sunday. And because my mind is wide awake at night and I needed something to occupy it. I want to feel informed for some of the films. I am usually quite into the Oscars, but this year I just haven't had the time till now to get interested. I rented Little Miss Sunshine, Babel, and The Departed. I also *really* want to see The Pursuit of Happyness which Will Smith is nominated for Best Actor. My friend highly recommended it to me. I probably won't see it before Sunday though.
I am one of those movie watchers that feels *guilty* for only renting a movie AFTER it has won an Oscar. I just feel that I should make the decision for myself, and not because it has won. Hence my feeling of urgency to rent/see movies this week.
I still need to see Babel, other wise I would post which one was my favourite.

Made this card at Cindy's on our blogfest/ crafternoon on Tuesday.
All Stampin Up products used except for adhesive was dollar store special.
Cardstock-basic black, going grey, tempting turquoise, cameo coral.
Versamark ink for background stamp, tempting turquoise for the flower, craft whisper white for the saying.
Big Blossom, Simply Said, and the background stamp was in a mini catalog with Simply Said last year, and is retired I believe Dots and Daisies. I ordered Big Blossom with my latest order, but it hasn't arrived yet. So I played with Cindy's for practice.
I trimmed the edges of the flower to fit my layer.
