Challenge # 63 - Sending Smiles

This week's challenge is simple.

Make something that will make someone smile.

That's it. The only requirement.

Well, I guess there are two, because we also want you to post and then link to it here.

* * *

Jana here: Rosemary and I discuss what the challenges will be. We go back and forth with ideas. Expanding on one, refining it. Well, when Rosemary suggested this one, I knew right away that I would make more cards for our HEROS. I am working on a second box of 100 cards to send to OPERATION WRITE HOME. And now without any further blabbering, here are my smiles for the week:

(Above card was made using all Stamping Up supplies. I made it at a monthly stamp club meeting, that's how I know.)

(Above card was made using whatever was at hand in my studio. It's more indicative of what I do.)

(Another Stampin' Up club card.)

(Another of my own creations.)

* * *

And now a smile for you.

How do you make a tissue dance?

Answer: HERE

Rosemary here and my project is a card that I hope will bring a smile to its recipient. The sentiment reads "God loves you just the way you are." That's something many of us find hard to accept, because we're so critical of ourselves and so quick to judge that we're flawed, wrong, whatever. But we're loved, even when we think we're unlovable. So, if that doesn't make someone smile, then check their pulse.

Please share how you are making others smile this week.

These cards are wonderful Jana. Kudos to you for looking to make others smile in such a generous way. Mine is a little more self-centred, it simply made ME
I enjoy hearing how the two of you come up with ideas too. Thanks for this happy challenge!

Rosemary said...

Hey, Deb, I resemble that remark (I'm easy in the nicest possible way! lol)! I loved your card, it made me think Mary Engelbreit and that ALWAYS makes me smile!

Chat Noir, mon cherie, you will endeavor and make black and white so stinking happy we'll hurt face muscles smiling!
