You Make Me Smile


Diva Maureen created this week's Verve sketch.   I pulled out some paper from a Michael's Mosaic Collection pack which is a mix of various MME papers.  Not sure how they swung this, but got to use a 50% off coupon so I wasn't asking any questions!

We are back to the pool for another two week set of swimming lessons starting today.  I talked the kids into another session since they both passed their last level and were on a roll.  Gives me more lap time too so no complaints other than the exhaustion factor LOL!

I'm giving this card for all of you, because you make me smile by coming to visit me in my little corner of blog land :)   I so appreciate all your kind comments and the time you take out of your day to pop by ((hugs)).

Some very fun and cheerful paper and details, and the pops of red really make this card stand out. You always make me smile Marisa - you are such a positive person, a wonderfully encouraging and devoted mother, and such a talented crafter. You make the best kind of friend too - always there, always uplifting, and always doing something interesting!!! Hugz!

I love what you've done with this sketch, Marisa! The bow/button/twine combo wins me over every time. :)

I don't have that Verve frame and die set.... Hmmm... Enabler!

How *does* Michael's do that, use MME in their collection? Hmmm!

Love the pops of red on here with the butterfly and pretty ribbon.
