Gratitude & Smiles . . .

Hi Stampers!

I've been playing around with some new stamp sets and the Quatrefancy Specialty DSP (Wait, you figured that out???  Oh damn.  I'm not as sneaky as I thought!!  lol).  Also trying to get out of my comfort zone with color.  Real Red is one of my favorite cardstock colors, but I'm not a "bold" type of designer.  The window sheets from Quatrefancy caught my eye, though, and I came up with this:

 
I find myself going back again and again to this stamp from Chalk Talk.  There are SO many people that I'm grateful for in my life, so this sentiment is definitely getting a lot of use.
 
Card Recipe:
 
Ink:  White Craft
Cardstock:  Real Red
DSP:  Quatrefancy Specialty
Stamps:  Chalk Talk
Accessories:  White Embossing Powder, Heat Tool, Silver Glimmer Paper, Glue Dots, Dimensionals, Stamp 'n Pierce Mat, Paper Piercing Tool, Paper Piercing Pack - Essentials
 
Uncle Kracker had a song out a couple years ago that's also a favorite of mine, "You Make Me Smile".  Thinking about people I'm grateful for always reminds me of this little number, as well.  Have you heard it?  Here's the link in case the video doesn't work for you:
 
 
My wish for you today is that you have friends and special people in your life that make you smile, whether you see them every day, once a year, or just once in a while.  Without those smiles, life would be bland indeed!!
 
Happy stampin'!
