You Are My Sunshine

Good morning to ya! Well it's Wednesday, and the week is almost half over! Where does the time go? I've got a busy day ahead, but I wanted to make a quick post before I leave for the day.


I made this card with Peachy Keen's You Are My Sunshine stamp. It's a beautiful sunshiny day here today, and a very fitting card for this glorious day. The sketch comes from Jen DelMuro's I Heart Sketches challenge. Sketches help me so much, because for me, coloring is the easy part. Putting everything together in the right place is where I struggle. This was a challenging and fun sketch, and I would encourage you to play along whenever you have the chance. That's what it's all about, afterall. Having fun, and learning! I pray I never stop learning!!!
Thanks for stopping by today. As always, I'm thrilled you did, and please come back again soon! Have a glorious day filled with sunshine, and things you love!!
Love Ya!

Lorie, you are MY sunshine every day and I'm sure most people who know you would agree that you bring sunshine to our lives ever day. This card is UBER FANTASTIC!! I love the creative fold you did, the coloring, the corderoy button and the stamped smilies in the background. FANTABULOUS!

I {heart} Jen's sketches too Lorie! And I definitely hear you on the whole coloring vs card layout thing! Coloring is the easy part for me too. It's the layouts I have a problem with, but you certainly had no problems with this sketch! I love how you used the stamp for the background. It creates such great patterned paper for the cards. :) I think I need a coloring lesson or two from you though. :)

WooHoo! This was just the spot of sunshine I needed today!! Lorie, your card is so cheerful and fun. I just couldn't help but grin big when it popped onto my screen. The fan-fold is the perfect accent and the colors so, well, sunny!

YOU are my sunshine!!!! You can brighten the gloomiest of days just by being you!!! Your card brought lots of smiles into my day:o) It reminds me of a stuffed music box Jonathon had when he was a baby:) Oh, how he loved to listen to it and hug it at bedtime. Thank you for creating such a beuatiful card and bringing such a fabulous memory to mind!!!

Love and Hugs!
