You made my day!

Hi there!

We are busy preparing for a 2 week holiday... we are off to visit our oldest daughter who is busy doing an internship at a hotel/resort in Madeira . Madeira is a beautiful small island off the Portuguese coast.
I am so excited, first and foremost to see her again, but yes also excited to discover a new part of the world!

But  I couldn't resist to take a moment and make a card for this week's Casology challenge where the cue card is :

                                                           

I will also enter my card to the CAS challenge at Addicted to stamps. (love the new look of the blog!)



                                                       GRAB OUR BADGE!



I focused on the effect of a really good joke! Yes that kind of laughter that makes you cry!


I picked small polkadots for my background, because polkadots make me happy... and I asked my husband to pick a happy color. He picked yellow and I think he was spot on!

The polkadot paper is from the very generous Mel Stampz  (Mel Mc Carthy). Thanks Mel... I appreciate you! This one is for you!

The laughing face is the letter "v" from the Faces font found here. I added my own sentiment.

You are welcome to use it too!

The complete face & sentiment:


Sentiment only :

 Thanks so much for visiting me today!

The polka dots with the yellow border works so well.
