You Make Me Smile Big!

Lookie lookie!! I stamped!! I made my last Tour de Craft card in July and then the kids started back to school (we start EARLY here in Georgia - August 4!) and life got busy and my stamp room was neglected once again. Until last week! My friend Leslie aka The Crooked Stamper came for a visit, and we barely left my stamp room! It was wonderful. And I even made some stuff!!

That's right, stamping, YOU make me smile big! ;-) That "you" die and the coordinating stamp was from some goodies Leslie brought along on her visit.

I had fun playing along with a couple challenges for this card. First, the colors. They are the latest Color Throwdown! I used to play this color challenge all the time (you know, back when I was an upstanding citizen of Blogland... way back then...) and just like back in the day, I once again enjoyed playing along immensely.

The sketch is from Retrosketches - but being the goof that I am, I totally didn't catch the deadline for posting this one. Ah well. It was a super fun sketch for using up some of my ridiculously massive stash of washi tape!

I even dipped into my old embellishment stash and used some Freckled Fawn resin stars I'd been hoarding for a while. Nice!

Thanks for stopping by today,
