So Happy

I am so happy, the Sun has shone for two days in a row. WOW. I know that may seem corny to some of you gals in the south, but up here were it is still in the - degrees at least the sun makes up for the cold.

My snow banks are down at least two feet, I can now see the neighbours vehicles and the cars coming down the highway again.

In praise of this glorious sunshine I made my sunny card today. I cut out some rough edge rectangles and sponged color inside them. I used Pear Pizzazz and Marnia Mist then I stamped the outline stamp from Fast and Fabulous on top of the colored squares.

I adhered the stamped image to a piece of Pear Pizzazz and  tied some hemp string around the base of the stamped image layer.

I stamped the sentiment from Matchbox Messages and layered it on some Pear Pizzazz. I then layered these two on to another layer of Whisper White that was embossed with the Small Dots and then onto Pear Pizzazz and finally all of this was adhered to my card base of Marnia Mist.

Hope you like it and it spreads some sunshine your way. Thanks for stopping by.

Here's what I used:

Stamps: Fast and Fabulous, Matchbox Messages

Paper: Marnia Mist, Pear Pizzazz, Whisper White

Ink: Black, Marnia Mist, Pear Pizzazz

Accessories: Stampin Up Embossing Folder Dots, Hemp Twine
