Rise and shine

Rise and shine

Until I started watching one of my nephews on a daily basis and had to be up early I didn’t get up until double digits most days and that involved my sweet husband bringing me a cup of coffee and something to eat. There was a period where I couldn’t drink coffee because of a medication I was on, but now it seems as long as it is black I can again! Which means hubby is back to starting my day with a hot cup, and it is one of the reasons I love him so much.

My sunshine

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. read more

Out and about one day I picked up this small pad of paper and it seemed so sunny and bright it inspired this card. I think it is the very reason that I keep buying so much paper, I see something and I know it would go perfectly with this stamp or that image. read more

I bought the stamps and dies because I love the weather theme and it’s flexibility. I have enjoyed using it every time that I have chosen it, and I have always been so happy with the results. One day I was at the craft store and I saw the paper that I am using as the background paper here and I just knew it would work with this set so well, now I wish I had gotten more sheets of it!

Happiness and sunshine

I think it worked! My card wished for sunshine and there was actual sunshine coming through my window today! I would be even more excited if I didn’t know the next week’s forecast is for rain almost every day. At least it seems to be getting a little bit warmer around here.
