Just Smile!

Hello!

I have had the most wonderful day! This morning was the usual round of gymnastics drop-off and collection, mixed in with grocery shopping, filling the car with petrol, and picking up some essentials like Winter pyjamas for my big girl who has grown out of all of her warm woolies and is finding the cold nights a bit difficult to bear (oops!). This afternoon we went visiting and had a long lunch at our friends' new home at the Gold Coast. They live in heaven, surrounded by trees, and yet only a few minutes from the beach. Heaven. We had a great afternoon of friendship and laughter. :-) The weather was nice to us, and even though it was a bit chilly, the blue skies were amazing!

So to celebrate, I used my last few minutes before bedtime to make a card, yay!
I used PTI stamps - Teach & Inspire (chevrons), Heart-2-Heart #10 (butterflies), and Framed Out #3 (sentiment). Colours are SU! Poppy Parade, Cameo Coral, Tempting Turquoise, Gumball Green. 

I used the sketch at CAS(E) This Sketch #33.

I also used the colours from ColourQ Challenge #194, which are such fresh and happy colours.
Tomorrow I am planning to run away to my craft desk for a couple of hours. Wish me luck in this little plan. ;-)

Thanks for visiting!
