making a little happy

i have not had time to craft this week! i hate that!!!! between work, and preschool starting, and labor day and both little menn's been a tad hectic here! but i did find time to squeeze in some crafty time this morning!! yay! i feel rejuvenated and i want to make more more more! lol! 

the card i made today is for two challenges (two of my favorite ones at that!)
lawnscaping (using the awesome sketch there!)

and the young crafters unite challenge - which is using a hot trend (or 2!) in your project!

a little note before you see my card...i used a LOT of patterns...a lot!! lol! it may border on pattern overload, but i am still happy with the result! :)

i used lawn fawn's 'a birdie told me' and 'happy everything' stamp sets!

the card is pretty self explanatory, actually! i used lots of washi tape to mimic a rainbow (love!) and the little bird and word bubble are popped up for dimension, of course! :)

it makes me smile to when i look at it! and i can't wait to send it to my grandpa to cheer him up and let him know we're all thinking of him! :)

i hope you guys have a wonderful and enjoyable weekend (filled with lots and lots of crafty time!)!
