Default IC662 (8/11/18) Life is Good

Happy Saturday and welcome to the Inspiration Challenge! I googled the National Day Calendar and discovered that for the past 20 years Pamela Gail Johnson has been promoting happiness. She started the Secret Society of Happy People in August of 1998 and decided that one day just isn't enough. The month of August is dedicated to choosing to be happy. I will share a link below to the Secret Society of Happy People's web page, I am sure you will want to check it out!

For our challenge this week our inspiration is going to take us to the LIFE IS GOOD site. I can't wait to see all your HAPPY creations! If you have been playing along with Dare To Get Dirty this week feel free to combine a challenge you may not have gotten to do yet. Now head on over to LIFE IS GOODand be inspired!!

IC662 Gallery

Keyword: IC662
My Sample: Happiness Happens

For great tips on being happy/sharing happy check out the Secret Society of Happy People. They even have a calendar for the month of August with things you can do to share happiness!

Did you know, we have an Inspiration Challenge Pinterest Board? Be sure to check it out!

For those of you who say you get overwhelmed with having too many, or too little, images to choose from, I've uploaded several of my favorite designs! So just stick with one (or all) of those for your inspiration. Click on the images below to see them bigger and to get their links on SCS.

How to Play ~ View the attached images. You may be inspired to recreate the pieces ~ but that isn't necessary ... get your inspiration from the colors, layout, style or 'theme'. Just enjoy wherever your inspired creative journey takes you. Remember, if you are inspired by the creation of another artist, please do not use print-outs of the art in your creation or directly copy their work. Make the inspiration piece your own. Don't worry ~ no card is 'wrong' and there is no time limit for uploading your card for the challenge. There are no rules, so let your creative juices run wild ~ be *inspired* and go get stamping!

Don't forget about No Upload Sunday - Let's give the gallery moderators a day off and not upload on Sunday (unless, of course, you are a Fan Club member - yet another reason to spend a little money on your favorite site). Also, remember to link to your SCS gallery on this thread. Thank you for joining me on this inspiration journey.

NEED HELP LINKING A CARD? FOLLOW THESE INSTRUCTIONS:

1. Open 2 windows. One for your card, one for this thread.
2. In this thread, click on reply and type what you want to show before the link.
3. Go to your card window, highlight the address for your card. (The address bar will say //www.splitcoaststampers.com/fo...stampers.....)
4. Click edit. Click Copy.
5. Go back to this thread. Click Paste.


NEED HELP GETTING A LINK TO YOUR INSPIRATION PICTURE?

If you are unable to grab the link of your chosen picture, (on some sites, you can't, it only gives a link to the whole collection), hover over the picture in the collection that you want to link to. On a windows machine, right click the picture (on a Mac, 2 finger click). When the options come up, select COPY IMAGE ADDRESS. This link will be for that picture.

Life *is* good!

It's been my birthday week and I have been so spoilt - tickets to Hamilton the Musical Charity Gala, to meet the cast afterwards and, to meet a special guest ... I can only say I have to learn to curtsy ... I'm speechless!

Here is my card Oh Happy Day. Thanks for the challenge to get me motivated to ink that stamp. It's been a few years since I've posted anything and I'm happy to have the chance to get acquainted with this community again.
