Happy Day - an embellished smile

After several occasions of forgetting to make a one layer card for Less is More's one layer challenges, I've accidentally come up with a one layer card for this week's Makes Me Smile theme when it's not required! Come and see:

This brilliant sentiment from Stampin' Up's Happy Day set always makes me smile - the power of suggestion perhaps?!

These Boutique Details embellishments come in all five of the latest in-colours and you get four different designs in each colour. I adore them and they're on special offer at the moment so that's definitely a reason to smile! (Check out the latest special offers here.)

Washi tape also makes me smile, and the corner rounder that's part of the envelope board... okay, let's face it, ALL of my Stampin' Up stash makes me smile!

Edited to add: Thank you LeAnne for pointing out that this card works for the current Washi Tape challenge over at the Paper Players, so I shall link up there too.

Did you know that if you smile, even when you're feeling down, it can improve your mood? I'm just off to do some hoovering so I'll try the smiling trick and see if it works... Perhaps someone recommended it to this lady?!

See you tomorrow,


  1. Love the fresh overall look to this card Vicky - Gorgeous!

  2. Your card is so pretty Vicky, it couldn't fail to make the recipient smile! Remember that ad well! Xx

  8. Well, you've made me smile - I have a very pleasing image of you singing as you hoover your house!
    Lovely card as usual. It's all the little details that you add that amaze me x x

  9. Vicky, I haven't commented for ages, I'm so sorry! Your cards are always a delight, those flowers are wonderfully tactile (I feel they should make a sound if you press them!)
    The Shake'n'Vac lady was on drugs. Fact. No one can be that chirpy while doing housework otherwise...
    I am singing (Come up and see me) Make Me Smile! xxx
