Focus On The Good Thing

As I grow older, one attitude that I really take to heart is the gratitude attitude. I find it that when I am focusing on the good thing it makes me happy. Even when things were not so sunny,  you can't help smiling and feeling better when you take the moment to appreciate the blessings you have in your life.

One of the many blessings that I do appreciate is the many friendship I have made through blogging and paper crafting. One of those people is Kristy Dalman the founder and owner of Some Odd Girl. I joined SOG back in 2011 and I am thrilled to announce that I get to be part of SOG team again for the 4th term.

I am a loyal person and especially when you get to work with someone who listen to your ideas and suggestion it means a lot (she knows I love critters and I can't thank her enough for designing more adorable critters stamps). So, I am super excited that Kristy decided to keep me. Besides being an Oddies challenge me to continue improving my coloring skill.

Yesterday and today at SOG blog, Kristy is announcing the new team. To celebrate, I made this card for SOG April sketch challenge.

This is one of my favorite Gwen stamp. I paper pieced her dress and for the embellishment I added the chipboard element from October Afternoon. Pretty proud of myself considering I used 4 different patterned paper and a chipboard embellishment. And the card still look pretty CAS!

You can play along and enter the challenge (and check out the sketch) HERE.

Also, today is my day at Paper Made Bakery. I would so love and appreciate it if you also check out my post there: Paper Made Bakery  Here's a sneak peek of my card:

Let's finish off today's post with a question shall we? What good things happened to you so far for 2013? Did you get to join a new DT? Did you get a new job? Please share and let us focus on the good thing. Like they say when you focus on the good thing, more good things will come your way. :)
