Turn that Smile Upside Down... Smile Challenge at Guylou's Inimitability!

I'm one of those people who is really silly and loves to laugh BUT walks around with a mean mug. It's not usually on purpose. Sometimes I'm busy trying to remember what I'm supposed to be doing; other times I might be singing a song or replaying a conversation in my head. Whatever the case, random folks like telling me to smile...

Anyway... The new challenge at Guylou's Inimitability is "Smile" themed! To participate, you can make any kind of card you'd like (bday, thinking of you, get well, friend, you get the point) using GI's Smile Bingo Card below and another digi stamp. If you want to be in the running for a FREE GI digi and a guest design team member spot (which will score you another digi), your second stamp needs to be from Guylou's. If you don't have any, you can purchase one/some from the GI store, OR you can sign up to follow the GI blog or join our group on CDAC and get a FREE digi stamp.  The challenge is open until 10 pm (EST) on January 6.

Here's my card for the challenge; my second stamp is Bernadette.
If any of you are in good with Santa, please ask him to drop me off some more DeLovely paper from Cosmo Cricket. I love that pack! If you care to know, Bernadette was colored with Copics, her dress is paper pieced, the butterfly punch is MS, the smiley face heart stamp is from American Girl, the pearls are Recollections, font from, and the bingo card was colorized using The Gimp!

Okay, you made it! Here's the Smile Bingo Card:
To save the image on your computer, right click on the image and select "Save LINK  as..." so you get the large version.
Make sure you enter your project by 10 pm on Jan 6, 2011, at Guylou's Inimitability!
I can't wait to see what you make; I know it will make me smile! :D
