My sunshine

by | Oct 5, 2017 | Fusion Card Challenge, Tuesday Throwdown | 6 comments

When one of my nephews was little (the one I talk about the most) I watched him daily while his mom was at work.  Ok, yes that is true for most of them on and off, but this one was more of a fulltime thing.  Back to the point, I would always sing to him, and this was what I considered his song because he was my sunshine.  He did always make me happy, he still does, except now he tells me he isn’t but I am pretty sure that comes with being nine.  I used Happy Days from Simon Says Stamps for the main design on this card.  The strips of paper come from all over, I love that I was able to raid my scrap box in order to make this card. I cut them into 1/4 inch strips and placed adhesive on the card and layed the strips down in my pattern then trimmed the edges, I then used a clouds embossing folder to emboss over the strips.  I placed my sun and stamped my sentiment to finish up.  I am submitting this card to Fusion Card Challenge: Sunshine on a Cloudy Day, and Tuesday Throwdown #363 Bundle of Joy (because my sunshine was a bundle of joy)

This is the sketch I used on this project:
