I love to laugh and smile – and I love it when others do the same. Sure, I have occasional “dark cloud days” but the “sunshine days” are always better (for me and everyone around me). Today, I’m sharing a bright and cheery card with all-new products and giving you several reasons to push back from you computer screen and show me a BIG SMILE.
REASON TO SMILE #1: THIS CARD
- 2015-2017 In Colors. You are probably bored with this statement already, but I’m totally in love with Stampin’ Up!’s 2015-2017 In Colors. In. Love. There’s a beautiful variety of colors from all color families (Brights, Subtles, Regals and Neutrals are all represented), but…two colors stand out from the rest because of their bright, almost-neon luster:
- Cucumber Crush. This bright, cheery green couldn’t be more vibrant. The color is captured on the base of this card, the stitched background print from Cherry on Top Designer Series Paper Stack and the stems/leaves of the cherrys (also from Cherry on Top). SMILE!
- Watermelon Wonder. Cherries are certainly not watermelon-colored, but these cherries really pop with this beautiful color. The sentiment (heat embossed with Whisper White) also pops against the Watermelon Wonder circle. Pop! SMILE!
- New Designer Series Paper Stacks. I do love Designer Series Papers and have always adored the Paper Stacks. In this new catalog, these stacks have changed from 6-1/2″ x 4-1/4″ to 6″ x 6″. I like it! SMILE!
- Bordering on Adorable! I could have created this card with Watermelon Wonder base and borders, but I chose to keep it all green. I really wanted to create the “wow” with the Watermelon focal point. SMILE!

REASON TO SMILE #4: THIS PICTURE
Last, but not least…
Here’s a quick picture of me at last year’s Founder’s Circle. The entire group, comprised of the top demonstrators from North America, participates in a big pajama party during one of the nights. I decided to wear plaid pajama bottoms and my Elf t-shirt. I share it today just to prove that I love to smile. 🙂 Not only am I sharing my big, up-to-nothing-good grin, but my “I just like smiling. Smiling’s my favorite” shirt about sums it all up.
So…did you SMILE at all while you read through this post?
