oh happy day! it's SUNNY :)

**NEWS FLASH**
It is currently SUNNY in Washington!

i know you didn't think it was possible, but today when i woke up (fashionably late... last Saturday of spring break) i looked out the window to sun, birds chirping, and my dog Cookie sleeping in our backyard on a sunny patch of grass.

amazing how a little thing like sun can change your day. i thought this card (actually 4 of them, 2 types) would be perfect to post today... it's filled with fun colors--albeit in a surprising combination--and it's simple, so even better :)

the ribbon is SEI, the stamp is Heidi Grace, and the punches are Fiskars and Paper Shapers. now you probably want to know about the paper, but i can't remember at the moment... i'll look in my stash and tell you later. (i checked and it's K&Co "Happy Trails" from a Mat Pad)

anyway, i'm about to head out the door to walk my dog, get some fresh air, and then sit down to create some more cards. i'm listening to some awesome uplifting music right now, you might like it too: "My Deliverer" by Mandisa, "I'm Letting Go" by Francesca Battestelli, and "Shadowfeet" by Cadia. also, other exciting news... i'm going to Ecuador this summer for a missions trip with my church! i'll be helping out with VBA's (Vacation Bible Adventures... like VBS but it's our church's own curriculum, songs, activities, etc...) last summer i had the privilege of telling the Bible stories--seriously the most rewarding experience EVER! (and so much fun... i love geting in front of people and telling stories, jokes, giving speeches. i know that's quite opposite of a lot of people, but i guess i'm gifted like that.)

hope your day is as sunny as mine! thanks for looking :)

What a simple and yet cute card! Fab colors- very spring like! :D Glad that you were able to have a relaxing day...again, I'm sorry that I'm sick and we couldn't go out.

That's so awesome that you're going to Ecuador! Uh oh, you and Janine are going- that plane is gonna get LOUD. :D From what I have heard, you're gonna have a great time and be so blessed.
