Share a Smile

A smile - something so easy to give and it doesn't a thing - unless you take into account all the dental work you have had. I listened to a presentation one day about small talk and one of the things I came away with from the presentation is how much difference you can make in a person's day - even your own - is to say hello to people and smile at people. Since that, as I walk down the hall at work, I try to speak to people - just say Hi - smile - or actually stop and have a small conversation. You may be the only person who does that to someone one day and you can make such a difference. Maybe turn someone's day around.

My card today was done for several things - it was the sketch over on Stamp TV. Stamp TV is a new social network designed by Gina K. Gina does a video each week on a different stamp technique. You must check it out - and if you are from Wisconsin - there is a Wisconsin stamp group on Stamp TV - which is very fun. Actually Gina K is located in McFarland, WI. The other part of the challenge is to use Kraft in a card - and this is the challenge at Caardvarks. I love to use kraft paper in my cards.

This card is going to a friend's husband who was wounded in Afghanistan. He just underwent another surgery to have a titanium plate put in his head. I thought maybe a card would brighten his day.

Stamp - Hero Arts
Paper - Basic Grey
Ink - Chalk Ink by Colorbox
