Reason to Smile

Good day to everyone, sorry about no cards last week, but I was very busy working, no time to play.  This week should be better!  Is everyone ready for the upcoming holiday?  Hubby has to work, so I'll be home with the fur kids, keeping them save and sound from all the noise.

Today I'm sharing alot of retired products, so lets get started.  Now my Whisper White 5/8" satin ribbon I colored with my Tempting Turquoise marker, it doesn't look like that color in this picture does it, oh well I wonder why, maybe I applied too much ink?  The stamp set is a set called Reason to Smile and I think it makes a cute card.  I don't have the new In Colors except for the Pistachio Pudding, so I went with what I have, it's so bright and cheery, hopefully the person who receives it will be cheered up seeing it!  Oh the sentiment is from a set called Sincere Salutations, I really like that set too.  I also used the retired square punches, 1 1/4" and 1 3/8" ones, using those punches makes those squares super quick to make too.  Now if you look behind the squares, you'll see I used the Adorning Accents embossing folder, that one is current!  Also current is the card stock, Whisper White and Tempting Turquoise.

Well, off to make some more cards, trying to make them as the ideas pop into my head so I don't forget, Mary

 A card is just a hug with a fold in the middle.
