365 Cards Challenge: Face It!

Good morning my sweet little cherubs! It is a glorious week. Busy with fun things like short days at work and school, turkey, pie and naps for all! Boy oh boy how  wonderful life can be! 

Today's 365 Card Challenge is to use any embellishments to turn your card into a face. Here is my card for today:

I had originally wanted to make the entire card a circle but I seem to make those a lot so I decided to use my scallop die cuts to make some green hair and my regular circle die cuts for a smaller face. It's hard to see, but I stamped my background repeatedly with a text stamp using white ink. I made my frame using a ruler and a marker and the sentiment is Ali Edwards. I didn't have big black brads so I used some that were grey and just dabbed them on my ink pad. Worked like a charm.

My 5 yr. old LOVES getting cards from me. I thought it would make his day getting one with a smiley face on it. That is why I chose this sentiment. I hope to give it to him close to when the new baby comes. I know things are going to change quite a bit for him (and me) and I want him to know he is loved. What a sweet boy he is! 

That's all for me today (and probably tomorrow). Head on over to 365 Cards and play along with the challenge. It will be a good time, I promise! 

I hope those that are in the states have a great time celebrating Thanksgiving and for those of you who don't celebrate, don't worry, I'll eat your piece of pie for you ; )
