You Are My Sunshine


How about a cute, warm-weather card after yesterday's wintry one? This adorable image is Wagon Kiddo by Stampendous, and is available at i {heart} papers. I stamped the image in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Copic Blending Cardstock by X-Press and colored with Copic markers. Embellishments include red buttons threaded with yellow satin ribbon and tied off with Black Licorice Divine Twine; hand stitching; two cloud die-cuts; and some ivory lace fabric tape by Love My Tapes. The papers are from my well-loved Tangerine 6x6 collection by My Mind's Eye. The sentiment, "You Are My Sunshine," is from a sheet of cut-apart elements in the Tangerine collection.


I hope your week is off to a great start. My kindergartner just finished lunch, and now we're off to enjoy this beautiful sunny Tuesday. Thanks so much for stopping by!

wow your designs are so whimsical love this all the yummy layers stacked on top of one another and using satin ribbon in the bottons is such a great idea!

Love how the ribbon runs through the buttons and then is tied together by the twine. Great image and great colours.
