Hey There, Sunshine!

Had another creative evening.  Worked 13 hours yesterday and was too darn tired to do ANYTHING. But today, I just new I couldn't stay away from my lil craft room.  I have to admit, this card took me about three hours to do.  The putting together part doesn't take too long, it's the planning and sizing and laying out.  But since I like the end result, I'm going to say it was all worth it.

I have a very dear friend who is battling inoperable brain cancer.  (Hey, McQzy, if you're reading this, I love ya, girl!)  My motivation as of late has been making cards to try and cheer her up.  She is amazingly strong and her faith is unmovable.  So, along with many prayers, I am trying to let her know how often I think of her by sending her a card every few days or so.

Here is my lil sunshine card for Suzy McQzy....




There is something a little extra special about this card....You have to see the sunshine wiggle!!!

 
I got these new little Action Wobbles that I ordered from Amazon.com and they are a hoot!  I've made my own before using thin wire, but these are SO easy! It's a little plastic spiral with a sticky circle on the top and the bottom.  Genius!  This is what they look like:

 
 

I can foresee MANY a wobbly element on my cards in the future!

OK, so, this is what I used for this card (I'm trying to remember to write things down in case anyone is interested, although I'm not to the patience point of tracking cut sizes yet, lol).
  • Sun - Wild Card cartridge
  • Sunglasses - Everyday Paperdolls
  • Snail - Create A Critter

I have decided to enter this lil card in a contest over at K Andrew.  You can find her here: http://www.gettingcricky.com/.  Please visit her blog.  I'm sure you will find lots and lots of ideas and inspiration there.  I also entered it in the Fantabulous Cricut: Challenge Me Monday contest.  More fantastic ideas and inspiration.  Check them out at: http://fantabulouscricut.blogspot.com/search/label/Challenge%20Me%20Monday.

I hope you enjoy YOUR sunshine!  Til next time, I'll be keepin' my fingers inky and my Cricut chirpin'!
