Make Me Smile.

Hello there, back from all the hearts and red rushed week ?? I hope your week has been going well so far.  We had a holiday here in Dubai yesterday and my family and I actually managed to break a spell on my home of “not being able to go to a park for a picnic”. So we did make it eventually ~ absolutely enjoyed it and looking forward to another one this weekend, inshallah. 

I made this card for some one speacial, some one close, some one I love, some one who really needs some encouragement or needs to be shown how much he/she means in my life. It has this digi image of a cutie bear looking rather sad or confused holding a fabric polka dot pink heart and wearing heart doted dungrees. The pattern paper is handmade embossed very light pink. Some border punching and a lovely lace sticker. 3 tiny sparkly glittery flowers and maroonish/brown ribbon tied to a sentiment saying “YOU make me smile”.

Personally, I think, I ‘d love to receive this card. It really has a very simple look and I hope you guys like it.

Here’s the card :
