Hey There, Sunshine!


Happy Saturday!  It's been a gorgeous sunshiny day here with just enough breeze to keep it comfortable.  Luis has been busy mowing the lawn and I took Atti for a swim and worked on some cards.  This one is for three challenges.  I used the sketch from Lisa Arana's Wanna Sketch? challenge, the sun theme from Keep It Simple and am joining in again with the Simon Says Stamp Anything Goes challenge.  The sun is from a Unity KOM from 2009 - an oldie but goodie!  I love the sketchy look of it.  (And I don't mean sketchy like dodgy!!)  Now off to get dinner in the oven and take Mr. Atti for a walk since he spent most of the day sleeping off his swim.  Have a wonderful evening!



Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White, Blue) Bazzill, (Daffodil Delight) Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (Sun from Jul '09 KOM - A Pocket Full Of..., Sunshine from Mar '13 KOM - You Are Simply The Best) Unity, (Hey there from Sentiment Sampler) Paper Smooches
Ink:  (VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko, (Tangerine Tango) Stampin' Up
Gems:  (Tangerine assortment) Doodlebug

LOVE your sunny happy card Jen... it's miserable here, drizzling rain and cold blah. At least it's shiny somewhere lol.

Thanks for the fun sunshine, Jen! I needed that, since it's cold and grey here. It sounds like you've had the perfect day! I'm smiling just thinking about it. :-)

Love the use of complementary colours - makes the yellow really pop!

AND NOW all I can think is how 'sketchy' this card looks...it's giving me the hairy eyeball, I swear. lol!

Great idea how you combined the sentiments, Jen. I love this (my Dad used to call me Sunshine) and the true joy it exudes.
