A dose of sunshine...



Yup, we need all the sunshine we can get up here in the great white North. We've got a good layer of snow here, and I'm anxiously counting down the days until it starts to melt.

This cheerful card is for a stab at a Guest Designer spot at Paper Smooches. I've been stalking their blog for awhile now and finally decided to take the plunge. I don't have any of their stamps yet (My fave store, Scrapping Great Deals just got some in so that cute little breakfast set will soon be mine!) but they have lots of fun (and free) digis for you to enter with.

And so voila - this card actually turned out better than I thought, which is pretty rare around here! It did take some farting around with the computer to get the sentiment where I wanted it - stamps have a clear advantage there! Patterned paper is Echo Park.
