You make me smile!

Hi everyone, I hope you are safe and well, and smiling!

My craft room is nearly done!
 It's been a long slow process. A wall was moved so that I now have double the space. I can't believe what I fitted into my old room, and that I knew where everything was lol!

It's been painted and flooring done, just waiting on the electrician to finish the extra power points.

 I'm reusing the bits and pieces of furniture that I had, maybe one day I'll revamp that too! At this stage I'd rather top up my stash than buy furniture lol!

Anyway, this is the first card I've made in the space.
I was inspired by the challenge at Simon Says Stamp Monday,
where the theme is "Ë is for", in my case Emoji!

Here's a closer look.

The smiley was coloured with oxide ink,then layered onto a black diecut. I inked it with versamark and clear embossed to add lots of shine.

I'm also linking up to the something old something new challenge at Allsorts. I'm using both old and new.
The groovy symbols die smiley is one I've had for years and never used! The Funky Fossil stencil is a new to me one and this is it's first inking.

What a fun card this is. It's so bright and cheerful and that happy face smile will make everyone smile. It's exciting to have a brand new space and lots of room to craft. It will be so worth the wait.

Glad your new craft room is just about ready Cathy and that you have christened it with this card. I love the swirly round shapes within the stencil which coordinates beautifully with the smiley emoji and the colours are so bright and pretty too. x

You certainly made me smile when I saw this card Cathy. So cool! Looks like a good week end to stay inside and play even after we have been doing that for some time now. Winter's coming!
