You are my sunshine, 2

Hi everyone,
As I type up this post, our normally sunny clear skies are turning a deep gray with an ominous feel of a big storm coming.  I am happy about this because since January we have had only 1.5 inches of rainfall and our water bills have gone sky high (I'm paying $50 more what I did last year at this time, and using LESS water due to our water restrictions!).  We have been lucky to have had some rain everyday this week so for the first time in my life (I love sun), I'm grateful. :)

So today, I made a card for my other daughter with the same sentiment I made a couple of days ago using the Mojo Sketch, "You are my sunshine".  Any of you who have kids will appreciate the fact that they need equality. :)  Anyway, today's sentiment is planted into a lovely sketch by the Stamping Sensations July Challenge.  I like this sketch because there's a lot going on...edging, lots of paper addition components, different shapes, lots of opportunities for bling.  I love these types of sketches!  While this doesn't have the same amount of sparkle as most of my cards, I think all the little bits and pieces make up for it.  I'm thinking of  sending this card to Claudia since she's my partner in crime where it concerns card making and will enjoy all the 'stuff' going on (remember, this is the child who is addicted to sketches).   :)

OK so here we go, here is the final product...voila!  Hope you liked it and thanks for stopping by.  Try not to be too depressed about it being Monday's still summer and you get to have a post by Kathy. :)  ~Margaret
