How can you not smile when you see a kite soaring through the air? I decided to use the set "Send Me Soaring for my card today. In my new stash I got the set Fabulous Phrases and I used that to stamp me sentiment. I think this is a great card just to brighten someone's day for no other reason than to make them SMILE!

Here are links to the challenges if you want to play along:
