Today's Forecast....Sunny and Sweet!

Hello Everyone,
In the event the weather is yucky, cloudy and stormy in your area, here's is little sunshine to help brighten your day! Smiley from

While looking for different challenges on The Daily Dare, I found a few challenges that I could not resist. The challenge at The Pink Elephant is to make a card with the color Yellow, buttons and design paper. The challenge at A Crafty Little Place (formally DCRUS) is a sketch and the challenge at Papertake Weekly is to make something Shiny, Sparkly and Special.

Lolli Anya is colored in with Copic Markers and I lightly airbrushed the background. The card stocks are Papertrey Ink and Bazzill. The design papers and corner punch are by SU. The embellishments are flowers, buttons,half pearls and Stickles. The sentiment was cut out from a piece of scrap paper.

My card also meets the challenge requirements of the following blogs.....
Cupcake Craft Challenges.....Buttons
The Pink Elephant.....Yellow, design paper and buttons
The Crafty Pad......Use any type of punch on card
A Crafty Little Place.....Sketch

Have a beautiful day and I truly hope that it is sunnySmiley from in your area! Here in Michigan, it is supposed to rain all day. *deep sigh* Smiley from

Risa, I am long over due to leave you some love. your cards are all so fabulous girl. I am a great admire of your artistic coloring talent. I haven't seen one of your cards that I haven't loved. They are all flawless. No wonder design teams want you! I get your post in my mail box. It's one of the few. I picked some I couldn't part with because I couldn't keep up with them all. I love your cards though!
