So, on to my project. I didn't have much time to craft this week, but didn't want to leave the hop, so I made a quick card.
Every piece of paper used was a scrap, even the white base. I used a scrap piece of 'tie dye' paper I had for the weave and found some colors that went well with it. After the weave was down, I started the flower face that says 'you make me smile!'. I posted pics to show how it was made.

I used the largest Peachy Keen stamp I had to make the smiley face, and punched it out with a one inch punch.
I placed my face on the white sheet of paper as a guide to where the stamp should be. I made the curve with the stamp, removed, and made the bottom.
After the stamps were on, I used spellbinders to cut.
I attached the yellow face with pop dots, and added an action wobble under the white 'flower' to make it dance!
And here is my card! I hope you enjoy, and I hope to have more time for tomorrows post.
I do have blog candy that I will be posting on tomorrows post. If you don't have time to come back tomorrow, don't worry, you are still entered.
I would love for you to follow my blog, but I do most of my posting on my Facebook page that can be found to the right of this post. Thanks so much!

Your next stop is http://quiverofangels.blogspot​.com/

I wanted to add that this is my first blog hop, so I'm sorry if I missed something I should have posted.

I so love the little happy face. This is one of my grand daughters favorite things. This is great for being short on time as we all often are. I follow both. I am better with F/B myself.
