Happiness card

Hello, Today I made a card that means happiness to me. Happiness is found when you are content. Contentment comes from loving someone, keeping busy, and have hope in your life. If you lose love and hope you cannot be happy. Disabled people have managed to find happiness even though they cannot do things. They use their minds and are mentally active. Yet they still have hope and some even find true love after becoming disabled. Such a thing happened for my husband and myself. We only had 4 1/2 years together, but they were happy years. I took care of him 24/7 by myself. It was a labor of love. I still miss him. My happiness was full, in him. 

The digi I used is called "Daffodil Plants" by Fresh Brewed Designs. You can find it here

The sentiment is by Lisa Decosse. I got it by joining her Path of Positivity challenge. You can find the challenge and sentiment here

Copics used are E000, E00, E01, R20- skin, E33, E37, E95- hair, BG11, BG13, BG15, BG18- teals, Y000, Y00, Y02, Y06- yellows, RV00, RV02, Y06- flowers, E11, E13, E15, E17, E18- flowerpot, E31, E33, E57, E59- cat, G40, G43, G46- grass, E43, E44- dirt, B21, B24, C1, C3- shovel.

The ribbon is by Little Yellow Bicycle.

That is so true, Edwina, hugs my friend, my Husband of 21 years, is my carer, and I often think, he did not sign up for such a thing, but we laugh, we cry, and we get through, how the world works without people like you and he, is hard to fathom...I love this card and a beautiful sentiment, hugs xxx
