My Sunshine...

Happy Monday! and President's Day!  Hope everyone is enjoying their long weekend! Or if you're working, hope you get a chance to relax a bit. Today, there's a brand new challenge at Lollipop Crafts... and it's one of our most popular themes... ANYTHING GOES!!


I haven't made an easel card in awhile, so i thought it would be a great time to do so...
This is an adorable image from All That Scraps, Honey, from the CC Designs collection. The papers are BG's Hopscotch... love the beautiful colors! So the "rain" (top half paper) turns into "flowers" (papers on bottom), and with some sunshine brings a beautiful garden of flowers behind the picket fence! The flowers are made with CC Design Cutters, and here are some close-up pics...
the die set comes with all three flower sizes
this one is made with two of the middle size and added a small prima flower...








okay...now I can't wait till the "real" spring weather comes! That's it for me today... please stop by the Lollipop Crafts blog to see more awesome creations from my fellow team mates! There's no sponsor this week, just an easy fun challenge!
