Hello Sunshine...

Happy Monday To Ya'll!  Well, Easter is behind us, which means that we're even closer to summer!!!  We have had some gorgeous days in Michigan lately and I've been feeling so energetic because of it.  It's amazing what a little sunshine can do for you!

The holiday weekend was busy but fun.  We spent Easter at my brother's house and had a wonderful meal with family.  The kids had a great time playing together and the adults got to get caught up on each other's lives.  It was a lot of fun and long overdue.

On Friday, I found some time to color, but didn't have enough time to actually assemble the card.  So, I did that today.  I'm entering this card into the following challenges:

Stampavie and more - Friends

Friday Sketchers 

Stamptacular Sunday Challenge - Sugar and Spice and Everything Nice

Stamp Something - Pink

Here's my card....
Hello Sunshine

I loved this image the moment I saw it and couldn't wait to work with it!  I finally have just the right occasion.  This 'Hello Sunshine' image was designed by the fabulous Elisabeth Belle.  Her work is simply amazing.  This particular image was designed for Ladybug & Friends.  Dp's and cs are from BasicGrey - Urban Prairie collection.  The buttons are also BG.  I used Bazzill gems and Stickles for a little something shiny.  The sentiment is from Hero Arts.  I used Nestabilities to cut out the image.  The butterfly was punched with a Marvy punch and then stickled.  You can't really see it in the photo, but I applied Stickles all over this card - on the girls clothes, the ticket, and to trim out the edges of the card.

I don't always complete the inside of a card when I first make it.  I often do this just before sending it since I don't always know who it's going to and what they might like.  This time, it just felt incomplete.  I used the same BG dp's.  The sentiment is from SU and I cut it out with my Nestabilities.

The image was colored using watercolor with distress ink and Copic markers.

I hope you have a great day today.  Thank you so much for joining me.  I hope you enjoyed my creation.  I had a blast making it.  Try to find some time to color!

Ciao for now,

OMG I LOVE this! I preordered some punches from 7KidsCollegeFund back in January. Unfortunately, this was a preorder as well and I put them together. I STILL haven't got this stamp!! I am hoping to see it this week. I just LOVE your coloring! I bought the stamp because it reminds me of me and my twin sister. I can't wait to make her a card with it. Thanks for the inspiration!
