VERVE Happiness

I participated in the week long stamp boot camp...I mean the annual Dare to Get Dirty 2013 for the Fan Club members over on SplitCoastStampers!  I won a prize.  Actually, I won TWO prizes.  One was an extension of my Fan Club membership.  The second was a VERVE gift certificate.  I was a VERVE virgin.  Was. 

It took me a week or so to decide what to get.  VERVE is totally different from any other stamps I have.  That's not bad.  That's expanding ya horizons.  Gettin' outta ya box.  Stuff like that.  Along the way, I found a stamp or two or three that reflect my philosophy on life.  Things like "life is a journey, not a destination."  I think I need that made into a stamp.  I digress.

I found this:  "Happiness is found along the way - not at the end of the road."  Sol Gordon.  Perfect. 

I used this week's SCS sketch, flipped; more SC Marks & Co plus stash!  I love the boldness of the orange...and the seafoam green.  I made a PL card; I believe I'm gonna use this as a reminder / motivator for myself...tack it up in a place where I will see it and remember. 

Let me show you how my order arrived. 
Um...HELLO, sparkles!
The invoice is on the inside of this folded card! 
My PRIZE!  These were the items I selected.
 Let me show you what I made again.  ;-)

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a moo'valous day!
