Have a sunshiny day!

Happy Sunday everyone! Last week was a long one and I am glad it is over. Hopefully this week won't be as crazy. After laundry, grocery shopping and some cleaning I hope to get some stamping in today. Yesterday Mary and I went to our LSS store to pick up the latest Basic Grey packs. Tim Holtz was there giving a class so we got to see him as a little added bonus to our shopping. When I got home yesterday I told myself not to do any stamping until I picked up my stamping area. I couldn't find anything it was so messy. After that I just got lazy and did a little coloring but not much else.

I saw this stamp a few weeks ago and thought it was a really pretty Sunflower. I colored it with my copics and then thought it needed something else so I put glitter in the middle and put some smooch on the the sunflowers. This is the first time I have used the smooch. I think it gives a little more depth then shimmerz (not that I still don't love my shimmerz). I think they may compliment each other well.

I bought the new Card Maker magazine and saw a card with this layout and thought it fit well with this stamp. There was a similar sample at the LSS using this stamp. I used my tonic punch for the decorative edge. I couldn't find any good small words for the card and it bothered me that the card didn't lay flat when closed so I came up with putting the circle on the side and I punched some additional triangles, cut them out and added them to the circle to use for the card closure. I really like the way it came out.

Thank you for coming by. If you like this card as much as I do please let me know.

This picture doesn't do it justice. I saw it IRL and it is beautiful, full of sparkle. Gread card Peggy.

It's really pretty, Peggy! Love the sentiment out to the side. Great job!

I'm glad you got a glimpse of Tim!
