Hello Sunshine

Well, its a lovely sunny day outside today but still a bit chilly and windy.  However, I'll take that over the MASSIVE snowfall we had this weekend.  I think it's the most snow we've had in one storm all winter.  It was snowing, freezing rain, raining then a whole lot more snow which made road conditions terrible.  It was a little weird since its started on Friday and they cancelled school.  Then on Saturday it was okay for most of the day which was good as we had to get our grocery shopping done.  Then Saturday evening it started snowing and didn't stop until Sunday morning.  It was also super windy which created huge drifts everywhere.  Our neighbour who plows our driveway almost didn't get through one of the biggest drifts.  With his TRACTOR!  Oh I am so done with winter!  Unfortunately, it's not quite done with us as there is more snow on the menu for this week.  Yuck.  So, why don't I share a happy sunny card with you today to take our minds off the snow?  :-)


I made this card using two digi stamps from Paper Smooches.  I love that smiley sun!  Once I had it arranged the way I wanted it and printed it off I coloured it in with my Spectrum Noir markers (CT1, CT3, CT4, GB5).  I made a paper mask of the sun and then stamped my striped cloud so it appeared to be behind the sun.  The cloud stamps come from Studio G.  They are stamped in a grey blue pigment ink also from Studio G.  I layered my panel on some yellow cardstock then attached this to my white card base with some foam dots.  This could be used for a birthday card or thinking of you or even a thank you.

I'm linking this up to the Paper Smooches SPARKS challenge this week which is an "Anything Goes" theme.


I'm going to link up to STAMPlorations as well.  They have a great sketch challenge going on right now.  I flipped the sketch upside down and changed where the sentiment went but that's it really.

 
I'm going to link up to Addicted to Stamps and More as well and their "Make Your Mark" challenge.  You need to use markers or something like that to colour with.

Well, I've got to go and figure out a birthday card for a friend of Donovan's from school.  He goes to his birthday party this Saturday.  He likes superheroes so I'm thinking along those lines right now.  I love making boy cards!  :-)

Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving a comment (or becoming a new follower!).  I hope you all have a fabulous day!
