You Make Me SMILE All Over My Face.

Wouldn't you say this stamp by Inkadinkado has my name written all over it? :) Thankfully, my sweet DIL Jami {Crazy Daisy Creations} thought it did and gave it to me for Mother's Day! I love it and couldn't wait to ink it up and create a bright smiley card with it.

This was a real quick card...nothing too special about it except for the super cute stamped sentiment. I stamped in Versafine Vintage Sepia and then used a clear embossing powder over it, cutting it out with the scalloped rectangle Spellbinder dies. The designer paper is from the Wild Saffron line by K&Company. It coordinates well with Stampin Up Close to Cocoa. I think while I have all the supplies out, I'm going to make a few more of these. :)

Now, in honor of MoM's Day, I'm happy to share a photo of "my kids"... who along with their dad are the great loves of my life. They have always made me "smile all over my face". I'm extremely proud of them and what they've accomplished and it's a true blessing to be their MoM! [from left to right: our daughter Katie, daughter-in-law Jami, son Andrew. Hawaii, March-08]

And here are a few other wonderful Mother's Day goodies I received...a beautiful YELLOW lily, a gorgeous handmade bracelet, and very special cards with sentiments I'll treasure forever!

I hope you've all had a happy day. I'd like to close with the sentiment from one of my cards:
"If I could, I would tie happiness in a rainbow (and smiley ribbon) and give it to you. If I could I would do for you what you've so beautifully done for me...I would wrap your world in love."

Smiles to you All!
