Say Something Nice

How cute is this image?  Like waaaaay cute.  It's from Cuddly Buddly!   That name alone was enough to make me want to check it out and I was thrilled to accept a spot on the design team.
There are two design teams and we alternate weeks, but these images are so dang cute I just may have to post something in between.
Today's my first post.  This week the challenge is "Say Something Nice" have a space for journaling or a note.  Hmmm, seems I left that off the front of the card but I did put it on the inside. 
Didn't Dorothy Parker say "if you don't have anything nice to say, sit next to me".  She was something else, certainly ahead of her time.  I would have loved to meet her but I digress...

As I was saying Cuddly Buddly has lots of cuteness for you to oooh and aaaah over.  There are several artists' providing the images so you'll surely find something you like.  You'll probably find so much that you'll be doing "eeny, meeny, miney, mo" to decide what you'll buy.  At least that's how I finally decided which image to pick.  So pop over and give it a look see. There's a weekly challenge posted on Friday and you don't have to use Cuddly Buddly stamps to play along, so everybody can play along.     Yes, there are some rules, but they aren't weird or unusual.  So if you like challenges, play along with us.  We'd love to see what you create.

Here's the deets:
Stamp - Cuddly Buddly digi "Singing In the Rain"
ink - hp printer
paper - Stampin' Up cs (might be Concord Grape) for card base; Basic Grey "Skate Shoppe" dp pack
miscellaneous - copics, brads, buttons, navy ribbon, burlap twine; umbrella charm; sewing machine; nesties circle dies

Here's the challenges:
Cuddly Buddly  #9- "Say Something Nice" include a journaling spot or space for a note
4 Crafty Chicks - photo inspiration (I was inspired by all the blues in the photo)
DYSU #34 -card for a  boy or man
