Since the day I received Stampin’ Up!’s Pursuit of Happiness stamp set in the mail, I have really pondered the phrase on one of the stamp sets:
Everything will be okay in the end. If it isn’t okay, then it isn’t the end.
I like it! It makes sense to me one day and is a complete enigma to me another. It’s a faith-based statement, and I totally dig that, but I can’t always wrap my head around it, so I wanted to make the statement a little more grounded. I used my markers to color in only half of the statement for the front of my card, and I finished the sentiment (with my own spin) on the inside:
Adding only half of the sentiment allows me to change the meaning of the statement by changing the inside of the card to something entirely different – if I choose to. Oh, I choose to. What would I do? How would I choose to wrap up this profound statement?
I am adding this paragraph into my blog post so that I can add some space between the card front and the next picture, which is the inside of the card. It would ruin the whole surprise if you opened up the blog entry on your computer and immediately saw both. (I assume you have a computer and that your neighbor is not printing this off on their computer and running it over to your house for you to see – what a waste of paper! And all that running just so you can be entertained by my blog posts? Come on!)…Okay, back to it. Where was I? Oh! The outside of the card says:
“Everything will be okay in the end. If it isn’t okay…”
and here’s the inside of the card:
A perfect ending, don’t you think? I added some Googlies from the Holiday Catalog to add a little, fun touch to this adorable pig.
