Sending you Smiles


A change from the Christmas cards and season, I need some sun to heat things up around here!  It's been chilly here in GA and I'm ready for the temps to go up a little bit.  While I can't wait for Christmas to be here, I'm excited for the kids and the anticipation they have for this day.  


This card fits the newest Playdate Cafe Challenge which I haven't participated in awhile. Their challenge this week is black, white and a splash of yellow.  I've been trying to finish up some special Christmas gifts and am thisclose to finishing them.  A few more little last minute touches and I'll be done.  

December's Stamp of the Month, Icons I & Icons Extras are very versatile and they would make a great set of cards for every season.  I kept the design on this card fairly simple adding just a few strips of cardstock and a few brads.


Thanks for visiting today and hopefully you'll stick around during my sporadic posting over the holidays, while I enjoy some family time.  I'll have a few posts here & there, but not as much as normal.  

Card details:
Stamps: Icons Extra, Icons I from Clear & Simple Stamps
Cardstock: Say Yellow to all your Fans, Perfect Little Black Dress
Inks: Say Yellow to all your Fans, Perfect Little Black Dress
Accessories: Say Yellow to all your Fans brads

Love this card - so bright and cheery. Just the tonic for the snow and dull days at the moment.

Thanks for dropping by my blog and leaving comments - it's a strange colour combination - but works surprisingly well!!!
