Smile and the whole world smiles with you. 

Today, I'm smiling because my very good friend, Paula Moldenhauer, is smiling.  Her debut novella, "You're a Charmer, Mr. Grinch", is a finalist in the Carol Awards.  I was there when she found out she'd been selected for her first writing contract--almost two years ago--in a room full of other writers and hopefuls.  So, being me, I just had to send a card with lots of sparkles.

The stamp is CTMH Love Doiley.  Sentiment is from Stampin' Up!  Colors are CTMH Desert Sand, Lagoon, and Blush.  The embossing powder is Stampin' Up! which has an off-white hue.  All together, they are pretty good substitutes for this week's Color Throwdown.
Congratulations to my friend!!!
Until next time,


  1. This is really sophisticated but pretty.I was just cruisin' through the entries and saw yours.Love it!

  2. Gorgeous! Love that doily stamp layered like that, and the sequins are subtle but add so much. Your recent kraft creations have been so pretty! (which is not an adjective "kraft" usually inspires...).

  3. Just lovely! The sequin accents are fabulous. Thanks for joining us for this week's Color Throwdown.

  4. Simply gorgeous! Congrats to your friend! What a special event! Thanks for joining us for this week's Color Throwdown!


Thanks so much for taking the time to comment. You bless me!
