Little Things DO Make a Difference

I have always believed that! Little Things DO Make a Difference!

Little packages are often the best ones.

Little words spoken kindly can make someone's day.

Little gestures (like opening the door for someone, offering a smile to a stranger, etc.) brighten the lives of others.

AND little touches on cards improve their looks.

Here is a card I made recently:

It wasn't a BAD card, I loved the image, the papers and colors were cheerful, the layout fit... but it seemed to lack something.

So I got to playing around and this is what I ended up creating:

I don't know about you, but I think that LITTLE circle made a HUGE difference!

This is so darn cute. You are right--who would think a circle would make that much difference--but it does!

Jeanette, this is so cute! Like the circle you added but thought it was cute otherwise too! Most of the time, I'll set my "finished" card on my desk and then walk around and come back later - and always change something!! LOL! Then when I finally complete it, I STILL see something I should have added or whatever! Oh well.......

Very cute image and the layout looks good! I like both of them.

You are so is the little things. Circles or not!

I LOVE the little circle. And the expression on the girl's face just cracks me up. Great card, J!!

Wow! Terrific card, Jeanette! And you are so right...the circle provides just the right punch of color and draws the eye to that pretty posy. BTW, that image is just adorable and so beautifully colored!!

What a darling card, love all those layers and I really like how you always make the inside of your cards as pretty too! Great job!

They are both very cute. The second one just looks totally different with the circles.

You are so right, little things DO make such a difference! That little circle changes up the whole feel of the card. But the image, your coloring, and the colors of papers & layout were already great to begin with! Cute, cute card!
