Today I'm showcasing the stamp set Smiles Begin With You, was I think is so cute for a couple of reasons. One, I can color in the little flowers and second is I can fussy cute it. Yes, as you of my crafting friends, Terry knows, I do love to fussy cute. I chose to use the Fundamental Paper pack and then tied a little bit of Baker's Twine Neutral Metallic Assortment around the bottom. This was one of the easiest cards I have made lately but I think it is so cute and simple.

Gina K Changelle and Mojo Monday Design



I have said many times I'm not very creative but I copy well.  I visit blogs, website and receive many email each week and yesterday I received an email from Gina K Design about a challenge- Black, White and Red, which are 3 colors, I do love. And if the truth was known, those where my school colors so they are near and dear to my heart. So then I visited Mojo Monday, I know, I know it's was Tuesday but i didn't make it there Monday. So anyway I like going to the sketches by the year.

Something just clicked when I saw sketch # 384  and here is my creation with a little help from my friends Gina K Design and Mojo Monday.
