You Brighten My Day

Wouldn't it be wonderful if someone walked up to you today and said, "You brighten my day"?
That's the fun name of the stamp set used for this card - which is absolutely 
FREE with Sale-A-Bration going on.  And then, of course, the cool paper 
Best Year Ever is also FREE right now, thanks to Sale-A-Bration 
(one of my favorite times of the year).

I was inspired by the wonderful sketch at The Paper Players for
 their challenge this week.
They have such a talented crew and lots of inspiration.
Tips - 
  • There's a punch that coordinates perfectly with this stamp; however, I wanted to use it in a circle for this card, so I used tape on the "frame" and inked the stamp up.  After it was inked, I took the tape off and had only what I wanted to use for my card inked!  So easy.
  • I've really been enjoying Washi Sheets lately.  In fact, I'm teaching a couple classes using the Washi Sheets in February.  I fell in love with Washi Tape right away, and now it's the same for me and Washi Tape's big sister, Washi Sheets.  So many uses - it's really cool and versatile - you can cut strips (like I did here), punch it, use it with dies ... the list goes on and on.
I also wanted to link up to the Can You Case It challenge.
CYCI #54
It doesn't get any easier than this challenge!

Thanks for stopping by.  Hope you have a chance to get inky today!
