I am back to myself!! SO HAPPY!!! The sun is shining outside here in OH and I will be taking my girls to the park in a few. Kim, thank you for today's, "Miles of Smiles." I was in desperate need of a birthday card for my little, Brooklyn Sophia who turns TWO tomorrow!! I can't believe my baby will be TWO!! I chose this image because you can't look at this little girls face from "And Everything Nice" and NOT SMILE!!! She's is too darn CUTE!!
The card I created today is ALSO for QFTD49 who was KAREN aka Redbugdriver!! I didn't realize she was a QFTD. I don't often do the QFTD challenges, but when I saw Karen was the queen a couple weeks back, I wanted to make sure I got a card in HER gallery! Karen, you always leave such sweet comments on my cards. I love reading your thoughts on my cards! You have such a COLORFUL gallery!! I am often afraid to use too much color, so in honor of your BEAUTIFUL and COLORFUL gallery... I went for the BRIGHTS!! I chose to CASE this card:
It is so super sweet and I love your CAS layout! I hope you like my CASE of your card!
Hope everyone is enjoying St. Patrick's Day!
I'll see all your cards in a bit! Like I said... I'm off to take my girls to the park!! They deserve to get out there after being stuck in the house with a sick mommy! Soo looking forward to see all your SMILING cards a bit later!! :o)

Jenna, GF, you made ME SMILE w/ this adorable card. Your are right, one cannot help but smile at this sweet image. I love your colors - I know you don't do brights - and my fav Swiss dots ef. Your coloring is fantastic and I love the beautiful bow.
Thank you so much for playing from my gallery. I so appreciate it. It was such a wonderful week being Queen and you just brought those warm fuzzies back again. I treasure every card in my QFTD gallery. I hope you play along again.

Jenna, this is total perfection! Clean and simple with a beautifully watercolored adorable scene - love the way the little dots pick up the swiss dots embossing! You will have to save this and Grandma Karen's beautiful card for your wee darling to enjoy even more when she's older!
