Sunshine Defined!

Hi Stampers!  BOY is it ever COOOOOOOOOLLLLD here.  My car said -4 this morning...I didn't even KNOW it HAD a negative, lol!  So, with all this snow and cold weather I thought we could use a little sunshine!  I've got to tell you, I'm loving this Valentine Defined set from the Occasions Mini catalog!  I've had the idea for this card in my head for a while now and finally got to sit down and put it to paper after our little mid-week date night on Wednesday!  What a great day, a date AND stamping!

My grandpa and my mom used to sing "You Are My Sunshine" all the time so this card has special meaning to me and my mom will probably end up getting one!  I got the sentiment from the Something Sweet set and thought it would be perfect for a Valentine!  I think the yellow button (from our brights button collection) as the sun is just the perfect touch here!  Just a couple of quick notes:  the ribbon is scrunched up just by pulling a thread and sticking it down with sticky strip, the top note and the tree are popped up on dimensionals, and the crumb cake panel is stamped in crumb cake with the woodgrain background stamp ( I LOVE that thing).  So, here you's some sunshine:
Stampin' Supplies:
Stamps ~ Valentine Defined, Something Sweet, Woodgrain
Paper ~ blushing bride, crumb cake, pear pizzaz, baja breeze, whisper white
Ink ~ Crumb cake (ink pad & marker), blushing bride (marker), baja breeze
Accessories ~ dimensionals, brights buttons, pear pizazz poly ribbon, top note die, crochet thread (non-su)

There you are!  Hope it brought a little warmth to your day!  See you soon if I don't freeze:-)

Happy stamping!
