Hello Sunshine...

Hi friends,

I have a confession...are you ready? I have an addiction... An addiction to the Olympics - OH MY LORDY...!!!...



I started this card yesterday but just could not draw myself away from the TV - so many events we love - gymnastics, swimming - CAN YOU SAY MICHAEL PHELPS - sand volleyball, volleyball, tennis, diving, synchronized diving - you name it, we love it!  :D

But I forced myself to do some chores this morning, slip downstairs to finish this card, get it posted and then...yeah, back to my addiction I'm afraid. LOL

I used Jen's August Sketch For You To Try for this week's Cupcake Inspiration. Here's the fab inspiration photo:


And this week we are sponsored by:



I used an image I've had for quite some time from Repeat Impressions - beautiful sunflower (did you notice the center of the sunflowers above? OREO cookies - delightful!).

I stamped the image on Rustic White card stock, colored with Copics and added some clear Sakura sparkle to the center of the Sunflower; lots of layering with black and Summer Sunrise, some machine stitching and some black brads.

That's it - thanks for popping in!

... you are my sunshine ...

Hugs, ~M.
