Life and Happiness what will you do with it?

Hello my friends hope everyone is enjoying the last days of summer with Labor Day just a few days away, where did the year go? I know it's been on my mind having my baby turn 18 in July and he just started school senior year, our middle turned 20 on Sunday and our oldest will be 26 in a few weeks.

Life is just going past and I thought one day it's gonna be a just me and the hubby. We just enjoyed a nice week-end down the coast it was so nice to be kid-free but at the same time it got me thinking 27 years and we always made sure the kids were happy and all our family time was kid friendly we never had just grown-up time.

Just having a few days to ourselves made us realize we should do a get away when we can it was nice getting to know eachother again. And so my question to everyone is what will you do when life and happiness comes knocking at the door? Will you and your special someone take the time to enjoy it even if it's just a visit to the local coffee shop or a nice get away? Life is short and quickly passes don't let it get passed you to quickly. Take time to stop and smell the roses.

Here is my stairstep card hope you like it.
I used my Lori's Garden and also my Art Nouveau cartridges
I used DCWV in orange and the butterflies came from Lori's Garden cut at a 3.75 for the green one and the purple/blue butterflies were cut at 3.25 and my yellow one was cut at 3.5.
For my flower I cut it using Art Nouveau at 3.25 I then puched small butterflies using my Martha Steward punch and added Tim Holtz glitter to my wings.


  1. I really like the Art Nouveau flower-I will have to check that cartridge out!

  2. It is nice to stop and smell the roses. Your card is lovely. I love the butterflies so detailed. It really is all the little special touches that make a card wonderful. TFS.
