52 Reasons to Smile (Deck of Cards)

I attended a fun workshop called "52 Reasons to Smile" in a cute little town called - Salado, Texas on February 7th, 2015 with instructor Belinda (an awesome lady who was very organized, creative and with lots of patience).  The class took 3-4 hours to create 11 cards (front and back).  Below is the information provided on their website:

52 Reasons to Smile

What makes you smile? Is it a special verse or poem? What about your family, the new baby or grand-baby? And don’t forget your pets, they make us smile too. We will use a deck of cards as the backbone for this class. We will ‘alter’ eleven of the cards together in class. Then you will have the tools to ‘carry on’ with the rest of the deck on your own. There will be a bag of ‘extra’ goodies to take home with you to assist in the completion of your personal cards. This will be a fun and unusual class using rubber stamps from Paper Wings Productions and selections from Graphic 45 papers.

Cards 1 thru 11 (these were created in the class)
