PP489 Make Us Smile


Happy Sunday, peeps!  Hope your weekend is going well!  Joanne is our hostess this week at the Paper Players with a much-needed theme challenge!  Make a card that will make someone smile!  We all need that, right?!


Of course, the Share Sunshine PDF came at the perfect opportunity, because look at this cute sentiment:


I mean, what is with the TP hoarding?  Our local grocery store still doesn't have any!  Good thing I am a "stock up" kind of shopper, I had a few on hand when this all started!  I printed my download on computer paper as my little Canon printer refuses to print on cardstock, but it worked fine....my shading with the Blends went a little wonky, but it is TP, after all! I used the TGIF Challenge colors for this week:


I diecut a Stitched Rectangle of each of the challenge colors from a gingham panel, adhered them on a card front, then embellished my sentiment with some of the felt cuties from Follow Your Art Embellishment Kit:


I added another Sunshine sentiment on the inside and added some strips of cardstock to keep with the challenge colors:


What will you put on your card to make someone smile?  I have to admit, my cards are not often "funny" ones, I go more for thoughtful or sentimental, so this is out of my comfort zone a bit!  My mom ALWAYS sent funny cards, and I miss them, so I guess maybe I should go out of that zone a little more!  Share yours with us at The Paper Players, and be sure to check out what the design team did as well...there are some cute ones!  Thanks for popping by!

My brother gave me a few more bulbs from Longwood and I quickly stuck them in the ground, where they bloomed the next day!  I didn't even have a chance to mulch them or anything!  They are tiny narcissus:



But they are so pretty as I come up the drive from my daily walk!  And speaking of Longwood, their blog has an interesting article on what the Facilities team (of which my brother is a part) is doing while they are closed.  It's not full of technical stuff, and it's actually pretty informative!  You can see it HERE.  Enjoy your day and be blessed!

How fun! I'm glad I'm not the only one who enjoys a little bathroom humor, LeAnne … sounds like your mom and I are cut from the same roll!
So great to have these fun printouts … combining this fun one with my favorite gingham surely did make me smile this morning!

This is one of my favorites from the digital set. Your flowers are beautiful.I saw some lilacs coming through NC and I miss them. I asked the Lord to bless us today. So far today we have seen two does on the river bank, two Canada Geese floating down the river, a kingfisher, Mallard duck, tons of cardinals, a hummingbird and butterflies. He blessed our socks off! But then there's the stink bugs and mosquitoes and I ask Him, "Why?" We are venturing out today for gas, fresh tomatoes, and then off to the vineyard to get Gene's favorite white wine. Chester is so content watching the river life. I'm glad we're here for a month!

Your card certainly made me smile LeAnne! I love the banner style of the sentiment and I love the felt embellishments and those gorgeous gingham panels. Gracious, that is a bit of a problem that the local store still doesn't have any TP? We had issues for a few weeks but thank goodness the shelves are stocked as normal now. Enjoy your pretty flowers!

Not sure what made me smile more - the gorgeous narcissi(narcissus)! or the sentiment. I love that you used the roll with it on the inside, too. I also love the pop of bright colors for the base. Such a fun card, LeAnne and a great way to showcase this download.
Hugs

Such a fun card, LeAnne! The colors really pop and let's be honest, non of us are going to turn down a roll of TP. LOL! The felt elements are the perfect touch.

I love this sentiment on the length of tp, it certainly is a card to make one smile! Super cute card with all the gingham and stitching, LeAnne!

Claire Broadwater said...

OK--YOU made me smile! I love the sentiment on the long roll of TP and the inside is just as funny! Perfect card for the times we are living. I love the bright colors and the fun felt hearts. Also, your flowers are gorgeous. That would make me smile, too! Stay well!

I'm always up for some toilet roll humour LeAnne (that's what comes of being mum to a 12 year old boy!!) and I love the way you paired yours with fresh gingham and those little felt embellies! Your card definitely raises a smile!!

Ann Schach said...

Such a cute card that definitely brought a smile to my face! The color combination adds to the fun. Yep...I would definitely share my toilet paper with you!
