Reasons for Mail... You Make Me Smile

This week's Reason for Mail is very simple... just tell someone (who makes you smile) that they do so. Easy peasy, right?

This one goes out to my new 5 year old! Happy Birthday Baby!!!

To create this card:
1) cut card from kraft
2) adhere layer of kraft (ink edge) and green punched border
3) sew faux stitching (use sewing machine without thread) along top
4) adhere floral paper
5) stamp sentiment
6) tie on bow and add flower center
patterned paper: (Gladys, Botanique collection) American Crafts
other paper: (kraft) Paper Reflections
ink: chalk (Chestnut Roan) Colorbox & dye (burnt umber) Palette
clear stamps: (Simply You by Ali Edwards) Technique Tuesday
fibers: (orange, 7/8" satin ribbon)

Have a wonderful weekend!

Happy birthday to your dear little 5 year old, the person that makes me smile is my 3 year old, he is at such a gorgeous age, and my dear friend Janice is dear to me too, she still makes me laugh whenever I see her.
