HAPPINESS

 

Happiness is like a crystal,

Fair and exquisite and clear,

Broken in a million pieces,

Shattered, scattered far and near.

Now and then along life’s pathway,

Lo! Let some shining fragments fall;

But there are so many pieces

No one ever finds them all.

 

You may find a bit of beauty,

Or an honest share of wealth,

While another beside you

Gathers honor, love or health.

Vain to choose or grasp unduly,

Broken is the perfect ball;

And there are so many pieces

No one ever finds them all.

 

Yet the wise as on they journey

Treasure every fragment clear,

Fit them as they may together,

Imagining the shattered sphere,

Learning to be ever thankful,

Though their share of it is small;

For it has so many pieces

No one ever finds them all.

~ Priscilla Leonard

 

 

Simon Says Stamp Monday Card Challenge – Clover (I decided to go with the clover itself)

SMS-Challenge---Clover-Barb-Derksen-1

I chose to keep my card super simple with the clover (guess a shamrock counts, though I didn’t take the time to check if they are one and the same)  I used hunted and pecked through my stamps to find what I wanted to say.  The LUCKY is composed of individual letters from a Ki alphabet stamp set, the YOU’RE was 1/2 of a sentiment stamp from Michael Strong’s “Cloisonne Words and Phrases” (do you ever use just a partial portion of a stamp for your projects?)  and the MY FRIEND is from Stampendous.

And the lucky four leaf clover / aka shamrock is my own design. It’s a two layered cutting file and by gosh since I took the time to design it I may as well share it with you to enjoy as well.  The top layer has fold lines made into it so you can prop the petals up to look 3d.  (the reason mine is shiny is because I spritzed it with Goosebumps after I cut it)
