Sending Smiles


Sending out the cards I make is a challenge in itself! I want to display them, look at them, touch them, and keep them forever so that this admiration society can keep itself going for a while. Selfish - Yup! So Gina from StampTV challenged us to make a card that would create a smile AND to send the card away. OMGoodness, that second part is the hardest! This card is sending smiles to Wisconsin all the way from Florida. I will kiss it goodbye tomorrow. I also created this card for the CPS163 Sketch Challenge and the JUGS29 Color Challenge, and the SSCC Flower Challenge and the Flutter By Wednesday #105 challenge. This is a record for the number of challenges with one card AND I actually like the card! I used the StampTV stamp set called Spring Mix, Copics to color and Pure Luxury card stock from GinaK. Thanks so much for the visit.

Beautiful card and great coloring - you have it here on your blog so kiss it and send it off LOL - I used to be the same way but I actually send them now and my recipients love them as will yours. Thanks so much for playing along with Just Us Girls this week. You did a super job with this color palette. We appreciate your participation and support. :-) Hope to see you again next week.

I agree with Stampin' Pam! That's the beauty of a blog. You have it on record but can send so much joy to the recipient by just mailing it away! For my Mom's cards, I never sign the actually card, I put a sticky note in it so she can remove the note and pass the card on! Your card is so sweet and pretty and is begging for an envelope!
