Path of Positivity Challenge - Optimism

Hello again on this fine Monday morning!

 This is my second post today and I am excited to share with you the new challenge for August over at Path of Positivity!!!  The theme for the month of August is: Optimism I did this card for a friend of mine who is torn between doing what she loves most or continuing on the career path she had choosen 10 years ago.. the quote I used for the inside is meant to encourage and remind her just what it would feel like if she were to act on doing what she loves most for optimism does create inspiration, energy and does bring out the best in us.
I realize it is hard to read so I typed it out: Optimism Inspires, energized and brings out our best, it points the mind toward possibilites and helps us think creatively past problems Price Pritchett 

Drop on over to Path of Positivity to see all the prizes you can win!!!
I hope to see you there, the girls all did such an amazing job on their creations.

Have a super day!
