Celebrate Today

Celebrate every day!  I just recently had a birthday.  It was pretty much just an ordinary day (although all my kids phoned to wish me a happy birthday) but that is okay that there was no big celebration.  I'm not really into parties and pizzaz  and besides it is always a good reminder to celebrate every day.  God has given me such a great life of happiness and health.  Each day should be a celebration.
I used the phrase "celebrate life" from a Verve set "Joyful Blooms".  The flowers are from that set also.
The colors are a little off in the photo but after a dozen different settings and placements around the house, this one was the closest to true.
Other things I used:  a piece of my new vine ribbon, the Verve Banner die cut, a few brads and gems.
Laurie Schmidlin's cards here were my inspiration.

Verve - use Verve
A Blog Named Hero - use Kraft
Pile It On - Bingo (gems, image, fabric
Your Next Stamp - celebrations
Chocolate, Coffee, Cards - emboss
