Smiley from Millan.Net

Having fun with fabulous new Stampin' Up! goodies and ink and paper!!!  And finding some awesome new-to-me challenge blogs!!!

This card was super simple and quick to make, but it's a cutie!  Just a little washi tape and twine and the beautiful SU set from the new Occasions Mini 2016 Rose Wonder for the sweet greeting!

Now for my first Valentine project!  LOVE the new Stampin' Up! Occasions and Salabration 2016 so much!!!! 

This card features the new Bloomin' Love stamp set and Love Blossoms dsp.  Oh and the FABULOUS Blushing Bride Glimmer Paper!!  Of course it's sooo my favorite!!!  And seriously the little bow tie clips are adorable!!  I made a standing card using this tutorial on Splitcoast.
