So Many Smiles....

My cousin, Emma, turned 12 last week and I made this card for her from my grandparents (her great-grandparents).

I loved this card so much, that I made 3 more.

The patterned papers are from Jillibean Soup "Dutch Mustard Soup" 6 x 6 mini pad and the cardstock is Bazzill.

I used one of EK Success' border punches and stitched with my sewing machine.

The happy face stamp & inside sentiment stamp came from an old Stampin' Up stamp set called "Smile". The sentiments on the front of the card are from Stampin' Up's "Petite Pairs" stamp set in their current catalogue and the "Happy Birthday" came from CTMH's "Say It In Style" stamp set.

I do hope that your day is the happy-face kind!

Happy 14th Birthday Darrien!

I made this card for my 14 year old cousin, Darrien. She loves sock monkeys, so this was the perfect stamp set to use for her card.

I used BoBunny's Forever Fall 6 x 6 paper pack with BoBunny Double Dot Cardstock.

I used CTMH Flower Buttons, BoBunny Ribbon, KI Memories Paper Clip, embroidery floss from my stash and Tim Holtz's Paper Distressor to rough up the edges of the papers.

The "Sock Monkey" stamp set and the "Petite Pairs" stamp set are both from Stampin' Up.

I coloured the sock monkey in with Copic Markers, but forgot to write down which ones.
