Don't Worry... Be Happy!!

{for my Shining the Light post, please scroll down or click here)

Hello!!  I'm back and this time I have a card for the 2nd CASology challenge!  Yay!!!  Wow the design team was completely blown away by the response to the first CASology challenge and I must say that each and every person who played along really hit it out of the park!!    Okay, enough chit chat from me... on to this week's cue word:



All the details regarding this week's challenge can be found here.  Now, on to my card...


When I saw this week's cue word I knew right way just what I wanted to do for my card.  But I had one small problem.  What I wanted to do required me to use a set of alphabet dies to create the word "happy".  Unfortunately, I don't own a set of alphabet dies.... yet!   I thought I could use one of the Cricut cartridges I had to cut the letters, but none of the alphabets were exactly what I was looking for.  What to do... what to do?   Well, what I did was dig through all of my supplies and I came up with these sheets of chipboard alphabets in a fun shade of bright green.  Problem solved!    I accented the word with a little bee that I stamped on some bright yellow patterned paper and then trimmed out. 

Thanks for stopping by... please check out amazing projects that the rest of the design team has for you: Melissa, Tracey, Jen and Ardyth and I look forward to what you create using this week's cue word!!

Supplies:  Cardstock:  Bazzill bright green & PTI white; Chipboard letters:  Creating Keepsakes; Stamps:  Hero Arts:  Be Happy; Ink:  Tuxedo Black
