You are my Sunshine

Hello friends

Today a card that mentions sunshine...what is that?  
Rain, rain and more rain here at the moment!
I've teamed brown, cream and teal for this card.  The dies are 
Delightful Circles, the background is created with Diamond Fleur de Lis M-Bossabilities 
folder and I've added a cute little hatpin above the bow. 
I inserted a tiny silver charm inside the hatpin to emulate the die design.

Lots of thanks to those of you who purchased the Autumn kit,
they are all now sold and winging their way to their owners.
For anyone who would like to make the project at home, I used a 7 inch embroidery
hoop, the felt was a little thicker than normal so I used a metal shim 
when die cutting them all.  
I do have the instructions if you would like a copy, 
just drop me an email
and I will happily email a PDF version through.

Take care friends - I will be back soon.

Good morning Christine, pretty card today. I don't have any brown in my stash at the moment, but I hope to put that right in a couple of weeks, when I get down to Dublin to the Knitting and Stitching Show (there are quite a few card suppliers who also attend).

These are lovely colours together Christine and adding the tiny charm was a brilliant idea. Yes, I could definitely do with some more sunshine!
All the best.

These three colours are sooo nice Christine - they blend really well together, so this card looks extra pretty!!

Just been catching up with your earlier posts so I have ordered my add on kit and have noticed that Elliott is progressing with his mask - I really am pleased for you ALL about that. Onwards and upwards as they say!!!

Hugs to you Sue Pxxx
