Sale-a-Bration Smile

Somewhere, I once saw a sign that said "Start the day with a smile and get it over with"--maybe it was in one of my teachers' classrooms growing up?  Well, let's just start this Monday off with a smile and get it over with.

I broke open my pack of Sale-a-Bration exclusive Sweet Sorbet DSP for this one--who knew that Pistachio Pudding, Summer Starfruit, and Crisp Cantaloupe would work so well together?  Ya know, that kinda sounds like a fruitarian lunch right there.  Anyhow, I used the totally awesome sketch from Freshly Made Sketches:

Quick and cute.  The part that took the longest was waiting for the Basic Black ink to dry--I just re-inked the ink pad and I didn't want black smears all over everything, so I let it dry overnight before I die cut the shape and stamped the flower over the top.  But it was worth it to have a nice, crisp, saturated black for the greeting stamp : )

Thanks for stopping by today!

That saying is actually on some cards I just bought at Michael's -- they are Mary Englebright (spelling?). Nice card, kiddo!
