Smile...

TGIF everybody!
Can you see me doing my happy dance? ;)

As grey as the day may be here, I am in a bright and cheery mood so this card that I have to share seems quite appropriate with all of its happy colors. I actually made this a couple days ago for the TGF CHA relay challenge and there were ten different ingredients that we had to get onto a card. Packing a bunch of goodies on a single card? Sounds like my kind of challenge, LOL!

When I thought about which little cutie to use I realized that its been a while since I've shown some love to any of my Wild Sprouts and Ruby was jumping at the chance to see some ink. I gotta say that she always makes me smile. I've been seeing all of the rolled fabric flowers that are currently quite the hot item (Emma has a great tutorial here) and since I was feeling uber crafty I decided to make my own out of some sheer ribbon. OMG I think I am addicted! LOL
And the best part is, I saw that Cosmo Cricket is coming out with basically giant glue dots, called Glubers, specifically made for creating these kinds of flowers even easier... you know I'll be all over those when they hit the shelves. ;)

Anywho... I managed to get all ten ingredients on here without it feeling too cluttered, I used a beloved stamps, tried a new technique, so you can say that I'm a happy camper. Boy do I love making cards! :)

Ok, time for me to go enjoy my day, TTYL!

Hi Amy. This is just such a happy card. Ruby looks smashing and ready to have herself a wonderful day off. lol... You have done a wonderful job with your flowers. I watched a video on the glubers too. I think they are a great idea. Have a wonderful day off. I don't have a post today as I was in the ER last night with Madison until about 11pm. They still don't know exactly what is going on with her. Off to work I go. I hope that your 2 days off are very good ones. Hugs Lisa
