Yes, yesterday was a happy kind of day at our house. It was cold and snowy--we got about 2.5" of snow, which made the kids happy. They played outside in it all afternoon. Meanwhile, it was nice and cozy inside the house. Supper was a pot of homemade chicken and wild rice soup (perfect for a nippy winter evening!), sliced fresh strawberries, and a warm chocolate cake for dessert. We tried this Dr. Oetker cake mix for the first time, and found it to be delicious! Baking it in the oven made the entire house smell so good, and a warm dessert on a cold night? Well, just like the soup--perfect. :) After supper we watched a family movie while tucked under blankets, all warm and snug. A little popcorn midway through the movie made everything complete!
And I got a little happy me time in, too, creating a little something for the January Paint the Town Color Challenge at Market Street Stamps. Here's the palette to be used:
Love these colors! I interpreted these as Stampin' Up's Pretty in Pink, Pumpkin Pie, Baja Breeze, and Melon Mambo. My Market Street Stamps? The Sweet Lace background (a RAK from Jessi when I was feeling blue!!! Thanks, Jess!) and sentiment from Happy Pumpkin. And since it was a happy kind of day, I made this a "happy" card. I can stamp "birthday" or "anniversary" inside for whichever occasion I need this for. :)
Thanks for stopping by! I hope you've had a little bit of happy in your day, too. :)
