Keep Smiling...

First of all, let me welcome my new follower

Christine of Stempel-Wahn

Check out her blog, you will be inspired by her beautiful cards!

Today I am showing you a card I made with one of my first stamps. I bought it in the children's section of a bookstore on my first trip to the US. I just love grinning faces and was immediately charmed by Sandra Boynton's greeting cards. So when I found a stamp featuring her grinning cats I had to have it. Looking at them cheer sme up. I grinned the whole time I was making that card. To be honest, though, I haven't used the stamp much. Especially lately. But I wanted to make a card for a cat-loving person with a great sense of humor.

Inside sentiment: "Sunshine is good for your teeth"

Used some Distress Inks with a Tim Holtz stencil, then clear embossing paste over that, sprinkled with gold glitter. The rest is self-explanatory, I think. Let me know if you have any questions.

Stamps: Sandra Boynton (cats with sentiment),  Hero Arts (background)
Other: Stencil (Tim Holtz)

That's it from me for today. My bed is calling me...

Be well,


  1. This is adorable, Susanne and that inside sentiment is so funny!

  2. "Keep smiling, keep shining. Knowing you ever can always count on me, for shure. That's what friends are for." Der Songtext fiel mir da spontan zu ein. :)) wunderbar, deine Karte! Ich lächle auch immer noch... Herzlichen Dank für die nette Begrüßung!
    Liebe Grüße Christine
