Another 3 minute Reason to Smile

It's Three Minute Thursday here and today I have another quick way to use the gorgeous Reason to Smile stamp set. Come and see:

This has to be one of my most used layouts I think! It's perfect for this technique: I masked off a strip on the card front with post it notes, stamped the small outline flower repeatedly and coloured the flower centres using a marker (no need to worry about being too exact!)

After removing the masks I scored the edges of the panel with my Simply Scored board and finished with this lovely sentiment from Curly Cute.

Here's what you'll need to make this card
Stamps: Reason to Smile, Curly Cute
Ink: Early Espresso, Lucky Limeade
Card stock: Crumb Cake
Other: Lucky Limeade marker, Simply Scored, Stamp-a-majig

My oldest son has become insatiable when it comes to food! When he was small he ate like a bird and it was a job to get anything into him but now that he's become all manly if there's any food lying about he hoovers it up! My daughter summed it up at dinner the other evening. "I swear you only have two moods," she told him. "Hungry or stuffed!"

See you tomorrow!
