Springtime Smiles! {Beate's WSC #41}

Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge along with this adorable smiley flower image from Sarah {Loobylou} have brought me out of my stamping ennui. :)

Thankfully, I don't get sick very often because I really don't have the patience for it. It's been over a week now and I'm still coughing and have very little energy, but I want to think I'm on the mend!

This is a 4-3/4" square card and I've layered it with one of my favorite K & Company patterned papers from the Wild Saffron line. The coordinating yellow piece was put through my Cuttlebug with the new Swiss Dot embossing folder. All the layers were stitched down with my Janome Sew Mini machine.

This super cute smiley sunflower image is from my friend Sarah in Australia. She commented that they were "to keep me entertained"! LoL :) I love them and enjoyed coloring the image with my prismacolor pencils. The "Smiles" sentiment is a tiny woodmounted rubber stamp by A Muse.

Thanks so much for blogging by. Wishing you Springtime Smiles! ~ Pam :)
