gratitude


I can remember when I was little and would be in a sulky mood, my mother would always say, "there goes Susan with a black cloud right over her head."  I am so glad I can choose to be positive, to see the Silver lining in all the clouds and know it is within me to be joyful!

Pam's challenge today over at 365 Card Blog was a sing-a-long, with Jason Maraz's Rainbow Connection.  I couldn't wait to ink up this awesome Wordsworth Rainbow Swoosh.  My card also happens to fit with the SCS Inspiration Challenge,  lovely packaging, of which I picked this box of chocolates.  I designed the bottom to include punches as the fun gals at Our Creative Challenge issued a call for border punches.  I used SU scalloped punch and a Marvy 3/4 circle punch.

Now if you think about it, doesn't the sight of a rainbow just bring a smile to your face?  It
is a reminder of a covenant promise...I am grateful indeed!
