The title of today’s post may be a bit misleading.  I was hoping for sunshine as I made the card I am sharing with you.  I am ready to see some blue skies and sunshine!  We have had rain for several days.  I know there are people up north who have a lot of snow and freezing conditions.  I am certain they would like some sunshine as well.

My little touch of Spring and sunshine is in a fairly simple card.  I used the Incredible Like You stamp set. The card is made with only stamps from that set.  I love to do this sometimes.  It shows how well the sets can work alone.   Plus this set has some really sweet sentiments.


Incredible Like You, 148708


For this card I used shades of green and shades of yellow.  The flower is a Two Step flower.  The base color is Daffodil Delight and the definition layer is Mango Melody.  The greens are Soft Sea Foam and Pear Pizzaz.  The Old Olive Linen Thread (which is super nice!!!) was a last minute addition and sort of covers the bit of whimsical stripes I had placed on that end.

I did add a butterfly from the Sale-A-Bration Designer Series Paper Botanical Butterfly for a little added texture and pop.  The DSP is still available even though the Butterfly punch is out of stock at the minute.  Truthfully the butterflies are very easy to fussy cut, but the Butterfly punch is going to carry over to the next Annual Catalog.  That is only a couple of months away!  Wow, time is flying!!  Get the Designer Paper now and FREE during SAB, then you will have it when the punch is available again.  You cannot beat FREE products.

Thank you very much for stopping by today.  I hope you have a great weekend and will return on Monday.  And as always, the complete supply list is at the bottom of the post.

Here is the Tote.  It is a great size, has dividers that can be moved for whatever products you are carrying each use.  There are two outside pockets that are large enough to hold punches, and much more.  There is a zipper outside pocket.  It has regular straps as well as a shoulder strap. It has the Stampin’ Up! logo.  It is made of a great heavy weight canvas.  And it is so Pretty!!
