You are my Sunshine

Coffee of the Day - Eggnog

Happy Monday to ya!
We had a wonderful visit with the whole fam, but as usual it went by way toooo quick. I spent a great deal of time tucked away in my craft room because the guys were out in the living room working on D & D characters - something that evidently takes hours and hours and days and days to do..... just in case you were wondering! ;) so I left them to it while they had Mythbusters playing in the background and made a few projects for the Love Fest challenges going on over at Split Coast Stampers. I found that if I came into the room and tried talking to them, they never heard a word I said, so it was easier to just stay in my craft room playing. :)  just felt good knowing they were all right outside the door! my fever was spiking all weekend, so I wasn't sleeping well - which is really icky since I had high hopes of getting lots of rest.  oh well, at least I could craft! grins!

This card was made for a color challenge as well as the sketch challenge at Sassy Cheryl's. I hadn't used one of her images in way too long, so it was fun to color one up. Cheryl is expanding into rubber stamps soon, so  she is opening a new store that will accommodate those in addition to her digis. her old store will be closing, so quite a few digital images have been marked down in price before they are discontinued the end of this month.

Papers are MME Stella & Rose Mabel, lace is vintage, images are both from Sassy Cheryl, flower is Prima. sentiment banner was sprayed with 2 shades of glimmer mist. you see I had to add some of my fave washi tapes! a little faux stitching & fun, big button complete the card.
