Reason to Smile

Good morning!  I had a chance to sit at my desk yesterday and play with some of my new stuff from the brand new Stampin' Up! Idea Book & Catalog so I finally have something to share with you today.  See this stamp set?!  It is available this month for ONLY $5 with a $50 order.  It is valued at over $20!  HERE is a link to this awesome promotion!  If you'd like to place an order with me just shoot me an email and I'll be glad to get you taken care of!

Mojo Monday offered up this fabulous sketch to try out so I did, along with the beautiful color pallette from Color Q to use Daffodil Delight, More Mustard, Chocolate Chip and Pear Pizzazz (yes, there is a tiny bit of pear on there).  It is funny to me how warm and sunny More Mustard can look paired with the bright yellow of Daffodil Delight!  Finally, the ladies at SU-Only Challenges suggested we make a special thank you this week, so here it is.  How 'bout that, three challenges in one?! 

You would be ashamed of me how long it took to get this card figured out.  I tried nearly every combination of these colors, different patterns, angles, accents etc.  Geez- it's been WAY TOO LONG since I've stamped!  Hopefully now I'm on a roll, we'll see. 

Here are two of the challenges.  Don't they look awesome?!  Thanks for stopping by today.  Stop back tomorrow for a very natural, earthy, casual wedding card.
