Hello again!

So another week has passed and with all its trial and error moments, I can still think back on my weekly Stampin' with Mel Cardmaking class and smile... I love spending time with fellow cardmakers!  This week's project was made to go with a gift bag for a boy...

(even tried my hand at some cross stitching!)

Little Sunshine - You are my Sunshine


After throwing a nasty box tutorial at my class the previous week (sorry ladies!!) I thought this week we will keep it clean and simple! I think it was the wrong box on the wrong day for most of us.... I also wanted to focus on some cards for the men in our lives... It was so much fun combining the Little Sunshine Stamp set (Clear, 138580, p 39 of the Occasional Catalogue - OC) and the Ray of Sunshine stamp set (Clear, 134210, p 159, Annual Catalogue - AC).  The Little Sunshine stamp set is the perfect set to welcome a newborn, but I loved the Ikat pattern and thought it would make a fantastic background for this card.
