SHOPPING OUR STASH #220 - Show Us Your Smile!

Hello and good day to you! We have a fabulous challenge starting today at SHOPPING OUR STASH; Show Us Your Smile! We would like you to use an image with a smile on it, or as an option, use the word 'smile' on your project. Here's what I came up with:

 and the inside:

So, if you can believe it, that vertical panel of minions is Ducktape (that's how it's spelled on the packaging - obviously found at a craft store rather than the corner Ace Hardware. LOL!) And talk about shopping my stash, that main panel minion is actually a tag from a t-shirt I bought some time ago. I wasn't throwing it away. Just look at him. He's sooooooo cute!! I backed him onto some black card stock before adhering him the the card with foam squares. For the inside, I mimicked the salutation from the ducktape, spelling and all. I had a bit of tape left when I cut a piece off, so I stuck it on a scrap of card stock and fussy cut one of the grinning minions out and there he is at the bottom of the card!

Now it's your turn to break out those smiling images, or use the word smile on your project. Just link it up at Shopping Our Stash so we can see it! While there, please check out the amazing creations that the ladies came up with. You won't be disappointed! Thanks for stopping by and here's a little parting ear worm for you. Have a great day!
