I am always amazed at the creative process. How about you, when you approach a challenge, what steps do you take in beginning and are you pleasantly surprised when you have brought something to life?  I was especially happy with my card for the color challenge on SCS today.  I just received some Kraft paper yesterday...it's a bit rough...love the texture with the multi-colored fibers woven though. I was flipping in my image book and thought this Art Declassified image would be perfect with a sepia wash. Happened upon an old clearance sheet of cologne label paper and I was on my way.

I adore the sentiment.  A good reminder for me...if I was of the tattoo ilk, I would have it inked on my arm. I might not solve all the worlds troubles, but I can RADIATE, for this moment, just for today, good cheer and happiness. So when I go out into my world this afternoon...I'm gonna spread sweetness...be it a smile, a kind greeting, or a hug.  Life's too short to let this opportunity pass me by.
