You Make Me Smile

The blog started years ago for ME.  I was inspired by the movie "Julia and Julie".  I would post a new SVG each week and offer it free to anyone that requested it.  At the end of the year, I had posted wellover 100 free svgs, so I definitely met my goal.  

I took a long break and I'm back. I need to set a new goal even though I'm starting in September.  My goal....to make a card for each of my two grandchildren each week and to make 2 cards to send to a friend or family member....that makes a total of 4 cards a week...a pretty tall order.  They won't be near as detailed and intricate as I have made in the past, but will be made with humor and love.

Dearie Dolls was one of my favorite blogs to follow.  She had a unique style all her own that so many fell in love with, not just me.  Like me, she took a break but has not returned.  I honor her today, and many months to come, with one of her images.  This is called "Take A Bite Out Of Spring".

Paper Smooches sentiment, for my lovely step-granddaughter Audrey,
Clouds are a punch


  1. LOL what a fun and interesting image. I do somewhat remember those images, but I don't believe I ever used them. I bet the kids will enjoy receiving your cards. Nice dimension and I happen to have that same grass die!

  2. These are so cute and colorful, I love that fun image and the added dimension!

  3. That's a great goal, and very ambitious! They'll love hearing from you. I send cards to my granddaughter (not nearly as often!) and sometimes include extra die cuts I have laying around. She loves to glue them onto paper for her crafting time.

    I love the way you built upon your Dearie Doll images to create these sweet cards!


  4. I too love Dearie Dolls and miss Mary. I love the card and the 3D head. Hope you achieve your goal, I'm not even making one a week atm.

  5. Oh my...I am so envious...love this DD image! I am lucky to get 4 a month made with my life style now. Hopeful to have that change soon!

  6. Great goal and humor and love is what counts.. I love the colors on this card and cute image.. So glad to see you making cards again.. Hugs
