Smiley Monday

Hi There! Happy Monday!
I had a wonderful weekend visiting dear friends and family. It was really fun and refreshing! How was your weekend?

Of course, I also snuck in a little card making time too this weekend! This is the card I made for this month's challenge over at the Claudia and Company Blog. This month is a really fun sketch by the talented Lori Boyd. For my card I've used Puddle Jumper Lucas and his little chick friend companion stamp! Originally, I started with a slightly different polka dot patterned paper as inspiration, but then as I was searching for paper in my stash for another card, I came across this paper instead! The first paper was fab too, it's just that sometimes a pattern is really cute but the design is more spread out (perfect for a scrap page) and then I end up cutting it up to fit on my card and it totally changes the look that I was originally drawing inspiration from. kwim? So then I found this paper (and slap my hand because I can't remember who makes it! Maybe MME?) and everything fell into place. :)

I've also paired Lucas and Lori's FAB sketch with a button from Basic Grey and a self adhesive chipboard sentiment from Momenta. And voila! That's my card!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
Many hugs,
