♥ the smallest things... ♥

...take up the most room in your heart.

Yesterday my hubby, kids and I took a ride up to New Hope, PA just for a little family outing. My husband and oldest son went into a little shop to look around and my 14 month old and I decided to stay outside. While we were walking around, my son picked up a 'ginormous' leaf. He started to giggle uncontrollably by the looks of this strange object. It made my day to see this happy little boy get so much joy by just a leaf!! Sometimes...it's the smallest things.


This is a card I made for this weeks Mojo Monday sketch. What a great sketch it is too! It would look awesome turned any which way! I used some of my FAVORITE papers at the moment! Prima's Printery line. Love, love, love this collection!!


I paired up the beautiful papers with a tea-stained heart, Jenni Bowlin stick pin, mini wooden spool, ribbon and a Prima Spool Button. To finish it off, I used this awesome Verve Stamp called, Smallest Things Plain Jane.


Here is the awesome sketch!!


Have a great weekend everyone! And Happy Veterans Day tomorrow!

Hugs...

I really like this card but I like your story better!! I really enjoy hanging with my 2 year old grandson for just this reason...gotta look at the world through the eyes of a child to renew the sense of awe and wonder...at the little things that bring that joy to life.

Hi Melissa, I thought I would pop in to say Hello. Sorry I haven't been over for ages, work is sooo busy but I keep a track of what you are doing through my dashboard.
I just love this card, the papers, colours and layout you have used make one stunning creation.
Hope you are all well - love the story about your little boy.
Take care.
luv and hugs {brenda} xoxox

This is too pretty to be just a card! It would be gorgeous in a frame to be hung on a wall, especially in a nursery. A beautiful gift for a new mom.
Thank you so much for sharing! :)
