A good laugh is sunshine in the house!

Hello! 
We just got home this afternoon from a weekend with my brother and his family at their cabin.  We had a great time with many good laughs.  My best friend from college also lives in that city, so it was wonderful to see her and her husband as well.  We only see each other once a year at most, but when we get together it's like no time has past.  I'm so thankful for friends like that!

Today's card is one I made for the Paper Crafts Simple Sentiments Challenge.  I don't know why I've never used them before, but there are free downloadable sentiments on their site that are perfect for cardmaking.  And did you catch that they're FREE? Gotta love that!  Here's the link - they have new ones added every month.  Something I'll definitely be using again in the future.


I just love that sentiment!  I printed it right onto some Cosmo Cricket paper and then colored in the house with markers.  I've had the chipboard sun for a while - it came in a Jenni Bowlin kit.  The yellow paper is more Cosmo Cricket and the blue lined paper is Love Elsie - another one I've been hoarding a while.  I'm actually thinking that this is one of my favorite cards I've ever made. 

I also found some happy news when I got home when I saw this.  I don't think I've ever won in a contest (besides runners-up or random drawings), so this made me extremely happy. And speaking of random drawings, I found out last week that I won some Cosmo Cricket fabric, which I can't wait to receive in the mail!  So I'm feeling rather blessed today!

Thanks so much for visiting, and I pray that you are feeling blessed today, too!
