LET THE SUN SHINE! — Today’s challenge is all about the color YELLOW. Yellow is a very much underutilized color in my stamp room and it is SO sunny and cheerful. So today let’s LET THE SUN SHINE by incorporating as much yellow as we can into our projects. That’s it — no other rules — let’s just see some sunshiny yellow creations!

Today I’d like tooffer our HUGE THANKS to Jenny Gropp for serving as our Guest Designer during April! We loved all of Jenny’s detailed designs and have been intrigued by her gorgeous anddainty little bows! So fun getting to know you better, Jenny! Thank you SO much!!!

And I’d like to extend a warmwelcome to Barbara Anders, Paper Pursuits,and introduce her to you as our Guest Designer for the month of May! I know you will all LOVE Barbara’s gorgeous creations and you’ll love getting to know her better during this month! Looking forward to a fun month with Barbara –WELCOME, Barbara!!!

What wonderful samples!!! Thank you girls!!! Much appreciated!!!

Heres my sunshiny yellow creation for today:


A yellow and simply stamped creation! A simple, easy and fun birthday card with a bit of POP!!! That fun DP is a pad I picked up at Michaels — Que Sera Sera by K & Co. The birthday sentiment is one of the soon to be shipped items by JustRite, shipping on 5/10. It’s called Birthday Wishes Set and has 6 fun birthday borders and centers. It fits on the new 2 3/8″ Wood Stamper. I just simply stamped mine and matted it with Nestabilities. My card is a standard size with the sentiment mounted a bit above. The Fuchsia Silk is from my Stamp Simply Ribbon Store, and it’s just knotted, nothing fancy!

Stamps: Birthday Wishes Set used on a 2 3/8″ Wood Stamper by JustRite

Paper: SU Yo Yo Yellow, White; Prism Razzleberry; K & Co. Que Sera Sera DP

Ink: Versa Fine Onyx Black

Accessories: Silk Ribbon by May Arts from the Stamp Simply Ribbon Store, Petite Circle Nestabilities, SU Corner Rounder, Kaiser Rhinestones

Thanks much for stopping in. It’s been a busy week and that will continue through the weekend. Our oldest son graduates from college on Saturday so there’s a lot on this weekend’s agenda! Hope you can create a sun shiny yellow project, or do whatever it is that pleases you this weekend! Have a great one! See you soon!!!
