I hope you woke up this morning and decided it is a good day to have a good day!

For my last Filled with Happiness card this week, I have a simple Front Flap Fun Fold to share.

It's basically just a little card on top of the full size card.  Two cards in one, or a twofer!

This image is the third image sentiment in the Filled with Happiness Stamp set and might be my favorite one.  I'm not typically drawn to fruit images, but I love the sentiment itself.  I believe we can control much of our daily "moods" by making a conscious decision when we get up in the morning that "today is going to be a good day!"  It may not be a perfect day, but it is much more likely to be a good day when I start it with a positive attitude.

Since there was a fruit image on the stamp, I decided that these were going to be lemons.  Not because they particularly look like lemons (wrong shape), but because I liked the colors on this designer series paper pattern from Delightfully Eclectic.  And this paper looks like lemons.  All the rest is creative license (or my imagination)!

This DSP pattern has Bubble Bath stripes with Daffodil Delight, Crushed Curry and Bubble Bath "lemons".  They must use Bubble Bath lemons to make Pink Lemonade -- my favorite!  Since the lemons have Garden Green leaves, I started with a Garden Green card base, a color I don't use often except at Christmas.

The scalloped Bubble Bath Shimmer paper was die cut with the Scallop Contours Dies.  Sadly these are on the Last Chance List, but happily, they are 30% off.  These dies have been around for a while and I was not surprised to see that they were retiring.  If you don't already have them, you should consider purchasing them.  They are awesome!

Since there are two cards in one, that means there are also two card insides to decorate.

I decided to make the card so it could be used for any occasion.  The simple hello from filled With Happiness on the inside of the little card keeps that portion of the card generic.  I masked the "miss you" portion of the stamp to purposely keep it generic.

And leaving the inside of the main card sentiment-free allows me to make it whatever I want it to be when the need arises.
