Smile With Your Heart :o)

Hi everyone

Did you have a good weekend?  We had lots of visitors yesterday.  It was Father's Day but we also had family and friends over.  We were doing quite well until we realised we didn't have a dessert!!  How could we forget that?!!  Anyway, Mars Bars to the rescue! We chopped them up and served them instead, with some little flapjack bites.  Luckily they were very good friends, and family will forgive most things lol

I have a card to share with you today.  I wanted to use some of my new goodies, two Martha Stewart punches and my Basic Grey Lemonade pad, so this is what I came up with....



I don't often do cards just with sentiments.  In fact I never really did them at all until a couple of the girls on the Play Date Cafe team did them and I thought I must try that!  That's what I love most about blogging, you try so many more things than you would if you just worked in isolation.  I get so much inspiration from other bloggers, thanks everyone!

This card uses the fab sketch over at Card Patterns. I had started to make a card with their sketch last week, but completely missed the deadline so I may share that with you another time.

I know there's supposed to be something resembling flowers on the left, but hopefully you can forgive my central button bow instead!  I am really pleased with how this turned out, especially my lovely little butterflies, they are so much fun to do!

The sentiment is from the {ippity} set, 'Fall For You' and the checkerboard background in the scallop circle is made using the 'Bit of Burlap'.  I wasn't sure what to do with the Burlap one to start with, but it stamps so well and gives a lovely delicate background, funky too!




If you'd like to buy either of these sets just drop me an e-mail.  See sidebar for details.  I am hoping to get a separate page up and running soon.

Enjoy the rest of the hop!

  19. Oh, what a beautiful card! Thanks for stopping by for a visit. I had fun working with the Color Challenge and I'm so glad that I found the sight.

    Thanks for the link to Card Patterns, another fun sight.

    I hope to be a regular on both sights, though I'm just really getting into card making!
