I have had so many reasons to smile lately. My sister has been here visiting from Nevada and I can’t think of ANY bigger reason to smile than having my one and only sibling right here to spend a few days with me. She and her hubby are going to spend a few days enjoying the sights of the Bay Area.  I know that they’re going to love it. It’s so pretty here!

But, I had work to do, too! One of those things was to make a card for the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® Design Team. Not exactly a hard task. ;) (Check out the post for the card below HERE )

Here is my card:



I’ve needed to make a lot of “thinking of you”, “hello”, -type cards lately and this was an easy one to make yet is pretty enough that I feel like it’s still me. Does that makes sense? I tend to usually like to make “fussier” cards, but I know that when you mass produce something it needs to be E-A-S-Y!! ;)

I love the speech bubble sentiments from Mama Elephant. Aren’t they cute? I wanted to have an elegant looking card with all of the gold and black, but still have it look happy. Hence the polka dots and the speech bubbles! Did it work? Are you smiling?

All of the awesome adhesives from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L®  make this card super duper easy to pull together, too. LOVE THAT!!

Hope you all had a wonderful Memorial Day. God Bless America!
