It's challenge day again at Pause, Dream, Enjoy Challenges!  This week's challenge is:

Question: Do you smile often?

Theme: Create any type of project with FACES.
(Drawn faces, cut faces, stamped faces, etc.)

What a fun subject!  I think that my default face is kind of serious, because sometimes my husband will say "what's wrong?"  when I'm just typing a blog post or reading something online.  I always try to be conscious of smiling, especially when I'm out in public.  The day I made this card, I was having a kind of stressful day, and it felt really good to make a smiley card!

Speaking of Smiley Cards, that's where this entire card is made from!  I cut the hexagon card base in bright blue from Smiley Cards and then put the patterned paper over top of it.  Then I cut the hugs emoticon from a different button on Smiley Cards.  I am so happy that the Cricut Craft Room has allowed me to buy this cartridge.  I love it!  I used Cotton Candy stickles on his cheeks, and then stamped from my new My Creative Time "Gift Card Sentiments."  I love the font on this stamp set!  I'm excited to use it more.

How can you make us smile?  Join us at Pause, Dream, Enjoy challenges and play along!  There's plenty of inspiration from our other Design Team members over at the blog to get you started.  :)
