One seed can start a garden, one candle can light a room, one step can begin a journey, one conversation can start a friendship, one smile from a handmade card can lift one's SPIRIT!

Clearly Besotted Challenge ~ Polka Dots!!

 The second challenge is going on over at Clearly Besotted Stamps.  Stephanie loves polka the challenge is:  Seeing Dots...and she says you can interpret this anyway you want.  Well, I stuck with my dots and used one of the sketches from the Summer Card class.  That cute elephant is from Cute and Cuddly.  I stamped and fussy cut him (wonder why there is not a die for these four cute little animals...hint hint, Stephanie!! *wink) and then added a little bit of color to him using some soft colored copics.    The word "birthday" is actually from a PTI stamp because I didn't plan very well when I cut my banners...the Birthday in the Cute and Cuddly set was too big to fit on the banner.  I love this set and think those animals are just too cute!

I was remiss in sending you to the blog for the challenge, HERE is where you need to go to enter your card in this challenge of "Seeing Spots"!!
