You Make Me Smile

Wow.... It's been a really busy week!  I had three of my monthly club meetings all this past week and in the middle of that, I've made a 6x6 book for a friend who is retiring (will share that soon), and I've been getting ready for convention - which means I needed to create a roomie gift too!   Our annual Close To My Heart Convention is next week and I've had a mile long list of things to do.   I'm slowly checking them off.   So, that has left little time for some plain ol' crafty fun.

I did manage to squeeze some in this evening.   If you keep up with me, you know that no matter how busy I am, I still love to check in on my favorite challenge blogs.   Sometimes it helps to take a small break from 'busy' and do something fun.  That is exactly what I did tonight.  While my hubby was out watering the shrubs I took advantage of a little bit of time and threw together this card.

The flower and sentiment are from the Hooray Bouquet (D1491).  I cut the flower from the Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge (Z1686) before stamping with Honey ink.   I created the stem, leaf, and flower center with Black/white Baker's Twine (Z1701).   The sentiment was stamped in Black ink, and then I used 2nd and 3rd Generation stamping to repeat the sentiments.

I used the sketch from Clean and Simple Stamping along with this photo inspiration from Just Us Girls Challenge.

Be sure to stay tuned!  I've  got a couple of scheduled posts going up while I'm gone!  First, the 6x6 Memory Showcase album with the Tommy paper and Canvas shapes! And my special room gift you won't want to miss!   On Thursday and Friday I plan to post some sneak peeks and hints about new things coming our way!  I can't wait!

Want more convention updates?  Be sure to LIKE my Stampinheaven facebook page!  I'll be updating that page all throughout convention.   See my page HERE.

In the meantime, be sure to check out our retiring list of products!  I've posted them all on a separate tab HERE.  All of the retiring products will be unavailable after July 31 so you will want to order these before they are gone!
