Little Miss Sunshine!!

Morning peeps!!
How are we all today? Great I hope!!! I feel like a squillion dollars today because Krista, Owner Saturated Canary Digi's asked me if she could feature some of my cards using her image's over on the Saturated canary challenge blog!! I am so excited and feeling teary but in a very happy way!!!!! Its just so nice to know that people like the little bits you pootle away making in your little crafty rooms (....or converted garages as mine is...!!) Thank you so much Krista xxxxxx

Anywhooo!! happy Lou moment sorted!! now onto my little card. I got an order in for a card at work yesterday, the words were " a best friend card for a birthday" so I came home from work at 1pm, had a cuppa, read some emails and then got to work on this little cutie. I chose Little Miss Sunshine  because she is just such a happy little bean and she makes me smile whenever I use her.

I am joining in with a couple of challenges with this little cutie pie. They are...

 the papertake weekly challenge blogs Get Into Shape challenge. All you need to do is use 3 different shapes on your card and your card base can count as one of them. I went for a square, rectangle and circle as my shapes and then with the little scrappies of paper I had left after making the card I used my SU Boho flowers punch and made myself a little flowery corner. Now, my little flowery corner obsession at the moment I am completely blaming on my lovely Pops. Whenever I go wombling over to her blog she has the most beautiful flowery corners. I still need to buy me some wild orchid stash, I am a bit slow on the uptake of buying flowers, but I do love how my little Boho punch flowers come out!!! and on the subject of punches...
the whimsy stamps challenge die cuts and/or punches with my little flowers and punched SU sentiment too.
And my mums craft shop challenges Inspired by a song challenge . My song just has to be "you are my sunshine" with that smile, whose day wouldn't she bring some sunshine into??!!!

Right , off for a cuppa and a biscuit or 2 now...anyone want one ??!!! I am kind of phone watching today as Little Mo woke up with his face looking a bit blotchy and funny. He has gone like that a few times now and the Dr always says its a virus. Poor little Mo has had mummy asking every 5 mins if he feels ok this morning and he kept saying " yes mummy, I can't possibly miss school for a funny face, I don't feel funny I just look funny" he he he he!! he makes me smile so much!! but I still had a quick chat with his teacher to keep a squidge of an eye on him incase he goes downhill later to call me.
Have a fabby day everyone!! huge hugs
