So Many Smiles….

Howdy, howdy - hope you're having a fabulous day!  I got one card done for two challenges and have posted two days in a row - so that's pretty good for me…..lately!

The Friday Mashup was to include a tree and embossing - I only have one tree right now.  Thankfully Lovely as a Tree is still around - so so versatile!  The sketch I've used is from Hand Stamped Sentiments.  

I've used paper from the upcoming "Lullaby" DSP and a strip of Mossy Meadow ribbon…which isn't part of the colour scheme for the Lullaby DSP, but it blends well - in person.  Sorry the ribbon looks so dark in the photo.
I stamped the "Petite Pairs" sentiment on one of the Essentials Wooden Elements using the Mossy Meadow ink and "distressing" around the edges of the wood with Hello Honey ink.

Well - I'm off to finish purging under my basement stairs - didn't get done yesterday.  Then I want to get outside to enjoy the FABULOUS sunshine.
Thanks for stopping by,
Joan
