You Are My Sunshine

Hello Friends,

It is so nice to see the sun shining here in NJ today!!  And it works in perfectly with OWH's Midweek Throwdown:  Let your Light Shine!  For this challenge you are to make a card and incorporate light into it, I choose the sun as my light source.  Here is my card:


For this A2 Card I used orange cardstock for the base of the card.  I then used Simon Says Stamp! Full Card Sunshine die and cut that out with yellow paper.  Then I stamped my sentiment from Taylored Expressions stamp from Happy Heart set in black on more yellow paper and then I cut it out with my CM circle and attached it to the card!  I think it is a bright and cheery card and I hope that it brings someone some sunshine from their loved one!!

Don't forget to check out the other cards made for this challenge at OWH Midweek Throwdown:  Let Your Light Shine!  There are some very talented ladies who make cards for Operation Write Home!!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy the sunshine and get to create something cheery today!!

If you have any comments or questions, please feel free to leave them in the comments section and I will get back to you as soon as I can!  I love reading what you think of my cards for OWH!!

Happy Crafting!!
Lori

  1. This is a bright and cheery card for sure. Great use of the sunburst die. I'm still in the walking around thinking of what I can create mode right now while listening to the thunder (yea with the leftover 12 inches of snow on the ground). TFS!

  7. I love this. You gave me inspiration for a sun on my card too with ribbon snippets for the rays. I am loving these challenges for being inspired by other card makers. And OWH is such a great cause. Thanks for sharing your card.
