Sunshine Monday

NOTE: Click here if you are want to see my post for the Sew Many Cards Blog Hop.

It’s SUNSHINE MONDAY… and I could sure use some sunshine! Brrr! It’s cold outside.

What, you might ask, is Sunshine Monday? Each Monday, the Sunshine and Giggles design team, which I’m fortunate to be a part of, will feature a Sunshine and Giggles image in a creation on their blogs. The only Mondays we don’t do this is when we have a Sunshine and Giggles Blog Hop like we had last week. By the way, if you missed it, TODAY is the LAST DAY to post a comment with the possibility of winning a free image. Check out my entry for more details about the Blog Hop.

Here’s my contribution for my first Sunshine Monday.

I used the Cody & His Magical Globe image, which is one of Sunshine and Giggles’ newest releases. I love to travel, so anything with a globe in it catches my eye. The sentiments I chose to use are two little wood-mounted stamps that I have (I don’t know who made them, since there are no markings on them). I thought the sentiment went well with the image.
I gave my card a lot of dimension by popping the image up and by using layers of paper, several buttons, ribbon, and an airplane shaped paper clip.

I chose to use the sketch for The Sweet Stop Sketch Challenge for my card.

If you’re not familiar with the Sweet Shop sketches, you should check them out. Each week there's a new sketch with some fantastic inspiration by their design tea

Thanks for stopping by my blog today. I hope SUNSHINE MONDAY has warmed your spirit!

Great coloring and the embellishments went perfectly. Where did you ever find the airplane paper clip? I need some of those?

Kym, I've had those airplane paper clips a long time... got them for a conference I was leading. I'm not sure, but I think they may have come from Oriental Trading Company.
