Happy Birthday Smartee

I made up another one of my Smartees card, and just wanted to show you how cute it turned out.  I have been having so much fun playing with the Patterned Occasions stamp set.  The images are so playful, and they are perfect for these little tiny cards.  I make these with a 3 1/2" square card, with an inch added to the side to hold the Smartees candy rolls.  It's the same design I use when I make post-it note holders with a pen on the side. 
I found my inspiration for the colors in the card at the Pink Elephant Monday Challenge which had a color/photo inspiration this week.  Don't the strawberries look yummy.  I am tempted to make some like this for our Open House on Saturday.  I'll have to see if I have time.  LOL!  I used the layout from Clean & Simple Stamping challenge this week.  (I am so glad I was able to find the right blog for the sketch.  I dislike it when there is nothing to identify the picture when I save it as a photo on my computer.  Sometimes I forget to double check and make sure that I save it in the photo label.  I almost gave up hope of finding this one again today.)  This is the first time I have played along with the challenge at Clean & Simple  Fall to Layout #223.
Have you started thinking about Valentines?  I have some really great ideas from blog hopping today.  Can't wait to get back to work. 
Come again soon :)
