Open Road and a Giveaway

Hello everyone!!  It's me Kymona!!!  Yayyyy, I'm here today sharing my Happiness is... card with all of you!!

First let me say, this theme is by far my favorite!!  All of us have things or people to be happy about.

For me, its my kids, sibling, nieces and nephews!!!  My family brings me great joy!!

One of the things we love doing together is traveling!!

So when I thinking about how and what to create for this theme, I thought of them and traveling!

Take a look at my card:

When we travel, we love the open road and chasing the sunset is what we do!!  LOL, we have so much fun together.  

Here is how I created this card:

1. I cut my card base to an A2 size card, 4.25 by 5.50.

2. I cut a piece of retired Stampin' Up! Watercolor Wonder DSP and adhered it to my card base.

3. I stamped the Happiness is... sentiment, the Vintage Balloon and the open road and a sunset to chase sentiment with My Favorite Things Hybrid Black Ink.

That's it!!  Super easy and CAS!!

I love how this card turned out.  The color really looks like the sky when the sun is setting.  Super pretty!!

Now, its your turn to share with us what Happiness is.. to YOU!!!!

You can link up your card right here.  We would love to see what you come up with!!

  1. Kymona, your card is gorgeous....the yellow background is perfect for the beautiful detailed balloon. Swooning! Happiness: spending time with my husband, my mom, my niece and nephew, who are 5 and 3, especially when all of us are together (we live four hours away from mom and my family). Next happiness: being an official at bike races in our province. I've met some of the most amazing people in that role, both athletes and other officials/fans. Thank you for the fabulous give away opportunity!

  2. Love your card it is super sweet! Happiness to me (besides family) Is uninterrupted time to craft!

  3. Really like your card, Kymona. To me, Happiness is ... sitting on my front porch, looking at the pond, and listening to the loons. We have the same pair return every year; it's a blessing when they have a baby!

  4. It's a beautiful card Kymona. Love that balloon stamp. If I could, I'd climb into it and fly away to meet the man I love. We live in different cities so we don't get to spend time together as often as we'd like... so if I could just fly at will and meet him... that would be happiness. :) <3

  5. Great card! Love all details! Hapinness healthy to see my kids grow up and share every day of my life with them💗

  6. Nice card, Kymona! I like the background color and the sentiment. For me, Happiness is .. be healthy to travel and to make the things I love and I can not.

  7. Gorgeous card!!! Happiness to me is family and friends who are like family and a good sunset :)

  8. Happiness to me is being calm in my heart and comfortable in my own skin

  9. Loved the card- Love hot air balloons. Makes me wanna travel. Happiness is when I get to eat TWO slices of meringue cake. Seriously.

  10. I love your card! Happiness to me is family barbecues in the summer and family reunions in October. Thanks for sharing!

  11. Lovely card. Love the clean and simple style. Happiness to me is my girls.

  12. Hi Kymona ~ What a fantastic card! I love the blended yellow, which is perfect for that lovely sentiment. Happiness is spending time with my kids, who I not only LOVE to pieces, but I happen to also LIKE the people they have become (they're all adults now). This coming weekend, they will ALL be visiting me, which gives me something positive and happy to focus on during the week. "My babies" will visit as well. They are grandbabies of my heart, just not by blood. :-D My kids make my heart happy.

    For me, happiness means a collection of joyful moments that we create for ourselves.

  17. Beautiful card.. Love seeing the Watercolor wonder dsp that I sadly missed out on even with endless searching. Happiness to me is knowing that there is a Heaven and that someday I will get to see my daughter again.. Until then I take comfort in knowing she is in great company with my father, nephew and many other relatives. Thanks for the opportunity and sharing your creations... Jill
