Happy Weekend!

I have a wee smile to share with you today!

Stamps: Paper Smooches (pretty phrases)
Paper: K&Co dp scrap
Ink: Memento, Copics
Other: CM corner punch,
Cricut (Plantin Schoolbook cart) 


Back to basics for this one, using the cartridge that comes with most Cricuts.  Added a little red & yellow ink & a stamp!   Doesn't get much easier than that, yet it makes me smile!!
