you are my sunshine.


This is post 1 of 2 for today...click HERE for my i think you are cool post.




My favorite color is green but one of my favorite colors to design with is yellow.  I think it is one of those true happy colors, kwim?  Combine it with aqua blue and perhaps some cork and BAM!

cardstock:  neenah paper:  mme cut & paste, studio calico card kit stamps:  pti phrase play #1 ink:  memento tuxedo other:  flair by bossy joscie, pti phrase play #1 die, reverse confetti banner die

Funny that I would use this PTI die again.  I have so many other PTI goodies that have been sadly neglected.  I'm working on spreading the love but haven't quite figured out a process.  Do you have one?  I know that I'm not alone out there with products that haven't been used.

Anywho's I was inspired by



I've simplified the sketch a smidge.

Thanks so much for stoppin' by!

  4. I leave my new things on the end of my crafting counter until I've used them at least once. Once at least one stamp has been used they can go to their permanent home :)! I love this card...the pops of yellow go perfectly with the sentiment.

  6. Amy love this fun card, the cork rocks. Yes sadly there is a lot of PTI sitting alone, unloved and brand new waiting for me to use it. Including this die you used today. Maybe we should have one play date at your house and one at mine! Jus'sayin

  10. BAM is right! This is fantastic! I love the starry paper showing through the cork. I'm sure I've got tons of stuff that hasn't seen the light of day in ages so every once in a while I start going through my stash to see what's been gathering dust. I should probably do that more often!

  16. Putting stuff away is usually a bad sign for me - I have to use it first. That said, my desk is a horror show of mess :)
    Funny but green is also my favourite colour, and yet probably one of my least used for crafting (next to purple, pitooee). I love that fun little flair!
