Fun in the SUN

Happy Thursday all! Yesterday sure was one of those days. I just got out of training class for lunch and had a message on my phone from daycare that DD had got sick four times and that I needed to get her. So I went to pick her up and then had to go back to work with DD in tow to pick up my training materials and let the instructor know that I probably wouldn't be back the next day either. On the way down DD got sick 2 more times and once on the way home, then several times before the evening. FINALLY a couple hours before bed she was able to hold down some popcorn, apple, and string cheese. It's days like these that I wish I was a stay at home mom and maybe could have prevented DD from getting sick in the first place.

On a happier note this sunshine filled card is part of a card kit that was sent to Sandra and myself  from Kadie. It is our little way to stamp "together". We take turns sending the kit filled with an image and provide some designer papers and embellies. I always look forward to see what the girls put in the kits and how we all put them together. Kadie sent us this Little Ducky Gorjuss Girl to play with. Isn't she darling? I tried to create sunshine at the top of the card and water at the bottom with the striped paper tying them together. I colored the image with copics and sanded the edges of the designer paper. I adhered some DP with glue to a chipboard flower from the kit then sanded the edges.

Please go visit Kadie and Sandra's blog to see what they did with the kit. Thank you for stopping by and have a fabulous day.

Oh poor baby!!! I know that is NO fun!!! If she stays sick (I know you know this) try the brat diet. (bananas, rice, applesauce and toast) that is supposed to be the mildest on your tummy. My kids would only sip on a little water and barely eat a saltine cracker when they were sick. Then like magic after 24 hours they were fine and eating regularly. Hope she is feeling better today.

I LOVE your sunny sunshine filled card. So sweet!!!

Hope you have a beautiful day.

Mary! This is fabulous! It totally brings a smile to my face (even though I'm so embarassed that it was my month and I don't have my card up yet)!
I love love love how you used so many of the elements from the kit, especially the chipboard flower and the patterned button. AND gorgeous interpretation of the water and the sunshine scene created with papers! I totally love it!
