If You Just Smile!



I was in the mood for a bright cheery card and this is what I came up with! Do you think it fits the bill. I am feeling very happy as my son and his family are moving back to Idaho. It will be so nice to have the grandsons  close again and to be able to enjoy them on a daily basis. My youngest grandson loves marshmallows so I know that I will be doing this activity soon! I hope each of you have a lovely day and that you take time to enjoy your family! The image is a SC which I colored with Copics. I add some Stickles to the toasted marshmallow and the fire.  I added a cute little ladybug charm to my bow. and a bit of a grass die cut. 
My Song: Nat King Cole
Smile though your heart is aching
Smile even though it's breaking
When there are clouds in the sky, you'll get by
If you smile through your fear and sorrow
Smile and maybe tomorrow
You'll see the sun come shining through for you
Light up your face with gladness
Hide every trace of sadness
Although a tear may be ever so near
That's the time you must keep on trying
Smile, what's the use of crying?
You'll find that life is still worthwhile
If you just smile

What a great great great card! What super news about your son and family moving back close to you. My DH and I were thinking about moving to the coast next year once he retires, but now with the first grandbaby coming we are having second thoughts. However, kids will love coming to see grandparents who live close to the beach. Love Love this image and you did such a beautiful job on the entire composition.
