You make me Happy! OCC Sketch Challenge

There are so many people that we encounter each and every day. Whether our interactions are superficial, friendly, business like or intimate, every person that we have contact with evokes a reaction of some kind or another.

Even though we own the way we feel, people can trigger different emotions within us. Our interactions can leave us content, frustrated, scratching our heads in confusion, estatic, joyous, apathetic or experiencing a whole range of other emotions, negative or positive.

It's those people that come into our life, whether briefly or for the long term that when you think of them, you smile that really stand out for me. Whether it's an act of kindness, a gestures, spending hours talking and laughing on the phone, seeing a nice comment on my blog,or the one that is your forever, its those moments and encounters that allow me to believe in faith in mankind, reduce my stress and just motivates me to forge forward on my living path.

So this card is for the one that makes me happy! It sounds singular, but is really not, but rather individualized so that it is personal, but pertains to more than one person and that person could very likely be you!

I used an adorable sketch contributed by this month's hostess Silke Ledlow over at OCC
Hop on over there to see her gorgeous card as well as the rest of the delicious creations from the OCC Design Team.

The image is from the Lily and Billy Sweet Pea collection, the Designer Paper, Debbie Mumm from creative imaginations. I used artichoke as the card base and a Stampin' Up! Rubon for the sentiment.

Enjoy your Saturday !!!

  13. Hey Rocker Chick! Glad to see you blogging. Where did you go? I must have missed something. Very profound statement and so true too!! I've been lucky that I've been surrounded by very positive people. . or it could be that I avoid people who gives me negative feelings. I think indifference or apathy is the worst type of emotion . . well, actually the lack of it . . LOL!
