sending you sunshine

and some laughter too! :)

I soo love this sentiment “sending you sunshine and laughter”. What a way to send some cheer to someone special :)

Here are two such cards. The background is from PTI’s Make it Monday technique #58 Graduated Background – only that I used regular watercolour cakes.

CraftyJC Sunshine Card Full

The flowers were hand cut – yes, it does show isn’t it :)

ETA – The curve of the panel is soo totally inspired by Susan’s card here

The centre of the flowers are left colourless but with those gorgeous Ranger stickles.

This one uses the same hand water-coloured panel with Papertrey ink’s Tag its #3 

CraftyJC Sunshine Bee Card Full

The sentiment is from Hero Arts Everyday Sayings and stamped in two rows
