Dear Self....

Happy Technique Junkie Thursday, my friends!  Hasn't this week just flown by??

I just received this fun Smiley Grid background image from Technique Junkie Stamps and I HAD to get it inky right away!  I have a lot of embossing going on both cards--it was so much fun playing around and, of course, I had my children in mind when creating both of these cards of encouragment!

Shine Today is clearly a favorite stamp of mine--I've used it a lot!  For this card, I've embossed the image with black embossing powder and then used the Non-Stick Color technique to add a rainbow of color.  After matting on a die cut shape, I added it to the embossed Smiley Grid panel--doesn't it just make you smile?
Who wouldn't want a card declaring You Make Me Proud?  I started by creating a resist and embossing Smiley Grid in white on white card stock.  Later, I used my distress markers to add color in a random pattern.  I also added some drips of color for a bit of a tie die look.  I added the sentiment in the cut out window and colored it up a bit by piecing colorful bits of the sentiment. 

Fun, fun, fun!

Have a great day and, don't forget to be awesome!
