Beaming with Happiness

Although I am hard at work on a project for my LSS (which I will share with you all soon), I took some time last night to work on one of the Verve Sketches with a twist (to use embossing on your card). So, I pulled out my Cuttlebug and Cosmo Cricket Honey Pie paper pad and came up with this...
I thought this would be a nice card to give to a girlfriend in celebration of some special occasion like an engagement, pregnancy, new job, etc. The sentiment is from Verve's Starlight Starbright set.

So have you all checked out Paper Craft Planet? I just signed up and am figuring out how it all works...my username is Kerry A and would love to add you all as friends if you are already a member too. Also, make sure to come join the EtsyInspired Group so that you can participate in all the fun we are going to have on February 28th! We will be chatting the day away along with posting a challenge every hour which of course means the chance to win some great prizes! :) And be sure to check out Ashley's post for details on how you can win some blog candy even before the blog hop on the 28th!

Thanks for visiting today! I will post again soon! :)

Yep our boys are the same age! my oldest will be 7 in July and the youngest just turned 14 months. I am kinda nervous to have 2 so close together since my boys are so far apart...it will be different! The GD is a big pain but I am doing ok with it. At least I don't have that much longer to go.

I love your card, the yellow and pink are so bright and cheerful together! I like cards that can be given for a number of different occasions.
