Your Smile Lightens Up The Stars

Hello thank you so much for your visit today.

Again… iam later than usually. Can you believe it??? The temperatures outside are raising and you would think the flue season is over but last week first Lucas, than Niklas and i  got sick. Yesterday i had to pick up Lucas from school, turns out his cold turned into a sinus /bad ear infection. Crazy.. i hope i can put soon all the sweaters and warm stuff into the bins.

My card for today was made using one of the Norma Fickel Whiff Of Joy stamps. I held on to this one a little longer to show on my blog because my friend Jacqueline and the entire team from Cute Cards and Stamps are having some challenges with card samples posted on the inspiration blog. Of course as you can imagine there is going to be a prize.. you have to check it out! Jacqueline really prepared a wonderful gift!

This week we are having a sketch for you, prepared by me, but there will be lots of other things going on. You can enter your card till 9 April and the winner will be announced on 11 April.
