Smile Sunshine

Hello, Hello!

So I received some super exciting news this morning. Unfortunately I can't share it yet but let's just say there was some happy dancing going on at 9:30 this morning and I am not a morning person :)

I originally was going to share some masking/clouds card today but it didn't fit my mood. Some SUNSHINE definitely does! I created this card for the monthly challenge over at Hero Arts as well as Less is More. The challenge over there is a one layer card with doodling (eeek I know!)

Let's get to it :)

I started by splattering my white card base with some glimmer mist in yellow daisy. I know I never use this kind of stuff but I swear I own it :) I am trying to push my boundaries remember!

Once that was dry  I stamped the daisies onto my card base and colored them with my marvy markers. For the doodling I drew a straight line with my pen and ruler, added some faux stitching lines, and finally traced around a scallop edge scrap I had laying on my desk. I knew there was a reason I never threw anything away that had nothing to do with me being messy :)

The sentiment original said "smiles"  I masked off the extra S then hand wrote the Sunshine. I super extra hate my handwriting but in the honor of new things and all I decided to go with it. To finish it off I added a row of bright yellow pearls.

So excited to share my news with you guys but in the meantime I'm wishing your day is filled with lots of sunshine too :)


  1. Beautifully done .... what a great design. Love the way you grounded your images with the doodling. If you hadn't mentioned it, I wouldn't have know that the word "Sunshine" wasn't stamped. Your handwritten sentiment is great!

  2. This is really pretty!
    Love the doodling!
    Thanks so much

  3. So well executed! You'd never know you were out of your comfort zone!

  4. Your writing looks great! Congrats on moving outside your comfort zone and giving doodling a try :)

  5. Lovely flowers, lovely card
    Thank you very much
