Week 168 Theme

We have another theme for you this week. 
Makes me smile!
It's simply that... something that makes you smile.
 It could be something cute, pretty, humorous, or merely a technique which satisfies you and makes you pleased with your finished article.
SO... lots of scope, but we'd like you to tell us the reason for your choice!

A few gentle reminders...
Since we moved our Guidelines to the sidebar from the top of the blog, there has been an increasing number of submissions not adhering to the CAS ethos... so please remember ...

  • White space - even if it's not always white,
  • Few layers
  • Minimal embellishments

Puppies make me smile, they are cut with All Occasions dies that are new stash from Ally Pally - new stash also makes me smile!  Memory Box sentiment.

Those of you who know me of old may well have expected to see a Penny Black chicken for this challenge. I couldn't resist this young lady. She is one of the row of chooks from the Chicky Work Out  stamp. I masked the rest of the girls using sticky tape before inking in order to get her on her own!
The sentiment reads...
God must love calories, because he made so many!
There are a few more examples on my personal blog!


Friends have often said this phrase to me over the last few months, and I wanted to change the sentiment on this to "Add Tequila and Salt" but the printer was playing up lol...
The Sentiment and Lemon dies are from the "Feelin Fruity set" from Clearly Whimsy Stamp range and the Linen texture plate from Papertrey Ink.
