To be honest I really wasn't sure where I was going with this card when I first started. I knew I wanted to color something in and I knew I wanted to play with the leaf image from the Pretty Posies Stamp set, so I just went from there. I stamped the leaf images in two lines on a white panel and began coloring them in a mix of purples, oranges, greens and yellows. Next, I went through and trimmed just one of the edges of the leaves for both lines and just played around with where I wanted to place them on my cardbase. Once I moved one to the top and one to the bottom of the card it hit me as perfect! I then die cut my Smile, from the Smiling Fri-dies set, several times, once in each of the colors I had used on the leaf images. I then layered them all up adhering them slightly to the right side so all of the colors would show. My final touch was playing with the dot for the "i" and I decided to have them floating up like confetti, because that is what made me smile :).

I am a SAHM to two beautiful (and no way am I biased! ) children... Aiden and Madeline! I have a wonderful hubby who not only lets me continue in my crafty addictions, but he supports it! ( I know! My jaw is dropped too! ) I have been an addict to papercrafts for little over 5 years now, and I'm even more so now that I have discovered the wonderful world of blogging! Thank you all for taking the time to look at my work and for your ever encouraging comments!!!
