You Make Me Smile

I've been enjoying the glorious sunshine we've had here in the UK which explains my absence, but predictably the rain has returned so I made a card to cheer myself up....

Supplies: Stamps - Papertrey Ink 'Floral Frenzy', 'Beautiful Butterflies', 'Turning A New Leaf' & 'Mat Stack 3 Collection' / Tools - Papertrey Ink Dies 'Mat Stack 3' & 'Layerz Mat Stack 3'

We're taking advantage of Dean being on Garden Leave & have decided to spend the whole of July in Florida (staying at our favourite Disney Hotel)....I'm a bit apprehensive, that's a long time to go without crafting lol

Hope you're all well, have a great week & thank you for visiting today :) xxx

Gorgeous card Steph, lovely colours.
Can I come with you, could do with an escape!
Have an amazing time, I'm sure you'll enjoy it and, as Ali said, think of all the trips to the craft shops whilst you're there. Could you order PTI and get it delivered to the hotel (save on the customs!)?!

What a beautiful card. Your month in July sounds like a great one. I think you should do some shopping while you're in the US and save on shipping, etc.

Maureen said...

okay, now I'm running out of complimentary words for your cards too! I love the colours and how you are rockin' an older set! Mine sadly get forgotten...time to revisit some! I saw the rain over there as I was watching the Queen's Jubilee on t.v. yesterday. Yes, we all must enjoy the sun when it comes out :) This card is sure to help on the days it rains.

Anne said...

Oh Stephanie, what a brilliant card. Lucky you going to Florida for a whole month, maybe no crafting but think of all the craft shops and lucky lucky you will be able to buy Papertrey stuff, could you hide me in your suitcase!!! Hugs x

Gorgeous card and lucky you going to Florida. You could always craft shop while you are there!!

Wow! What a gorgeous card! There are so many things I love about it! The way you have the MS3 hanging over the top, the way the dots in the flower centers match the frame, the colors, everything! I just really love it! How exciting about your trip over to my neck of the woods! A month is a long time, I'm sure you can sneak off to do a little crafty time! At least some shopping while you are near some big stores!

Beautiful card Steph, love the colours. Hope you have a lovely time in Florida. I'm longing to go back, one day soon maybe!

Susie said...

Not to worry. I will be away for three weeks - but it will be well worth it. We will be first time grandparents in July! A little grandson. I will check back in when you're back. This is another beautiful design and I'm having a wonderful time looking through your posts. Gorgeous cards.

Katrina Turner said...

Such a gorgeous card as always Steph. Lovely colours.

Ohhh, I'm so jealous now ;) A whole month in Florida sound like bliss! Think of all the sunshine, fun and craft shopping ;) A PTI order and trip or two to Michael's etc etc would be a must if I were there! Enjoy!

We will miss you beautiful creations whilst you are away but will love hearing all about it when you return home. xx
