Word for 2014: Happy

So, the Cas-ual Fridays Challenge - In a Word, to use a word on your card that describes your hope for a new year  - got me thinking.
As you can see - I chose the word HAPPY.  But I chose this word - not for the 'ha ha' happy, or even that I want to be happy every day of the year.   I use HAPPY as what I want to strive to be -  through the thick and thin, good and bad, happy and sad -  to be able to recognize that through all the events that will happen to me this year -  to see the HAPPY in it - to be HAPPY that I am alive and able to feel all these things and to come through them all and get to a better place. 

On the lighter side -  I'm HAPPY that I will be able to use this card for an Anniversary, a Birthday or even a New Baby - all depending on what I stamp inside!

Here are the challenges I'm entering my HAPPY card in:
Cas-ual Fridays - In a Word




What's your word??!!


Paper:  White - Bazzill, DP Sn@p/Simple Stories, gold - Marks Finest Papers
Accessories:  pom pom ribbon - American Crafts, One Liners - Happy die - PTI, washi tape - Darice, Lemonade Blend Sequins - Avery Elle.

Beautiful word-of-the-year card, Julia! (Now why couldn't I have used a reasonable word like that?!) I know you will approach all your 2014 events with a wonderful attitude! Hugs, Darnell

Wonderfully stated, Julia! I love your sentiments for being happy. And you're right, this will be quite a versatile card once you need it. Maybe I should do more generic "happy" cards. Thanks for joining the CAS-ual Fridays Challenge!
