The first week of January proved to be quite challenging for my New Year's Resolution to be happier and less worried, with getting some disturbing news from our vet and then Saturday having a large branch fall ON our car during a thunderstorm causing a good deal of damage.  So now this coming week it will be in the shop (luckily all covered by insurance), we will have to get a rental (covered too) and we also take our dog back to the vet for more testing.  So, getting in my craft room and making this bright and cheery card, along with some others, was one way to help me find some happy thoughts and blessings.  

Who can't smile at that adorable little bear?  Since this week's theme is "Sparkle", I used my Stickles to sparkle and the sentiment.  I also got some new supplies this week and so I've been having fun trying them out, like the pinwheel die here.

I'm entering my card in the following challenges:

(I flipped the sketch a bit).

We would love to see your projects!

Bear-y Blessings!

It's awfully hard not to worry with that kind of chaos going on in your life - pretty sure that just making the effort to be at peace counts!!
