Alice's sunshine ♥

Hi friends!

Yay for Friday!
Yay for sunshine outside my window,
shining brightly after days upon days of rain.
And Yay that my son is finally heading home this weekend
after nearly 3 weeks of Boy Scout camp! 

  Every 28th of the month,
the Challenge Your Stash card group post our cards with a theme.
Our hostess this month is Maggie and she said:

Celebrate the start of summer by making a card
 with Yellow and Sunshine.

The CYS card group literally means to challenge your stash
of supplies, meaning nothing new can be used/bought!
It helps us to stretch the supplies that we purchase,
especially if a stamp has only seen ink once (or not at all!)

Today, I'm using the stamp Sunshine by CC Designs,
 stamp I bought over 2 years ago.
I created this card with it in April 2017 :)
The yellow requirement is the base color for the overall design
and the sunshine is in her little balloon hand.
The gingham paper is from my scrap pile 
and the dies I've used have been in my collection for a long time.
And the sweet little lemon sequins are from a win over on Instagram:
Doodles Paper Playground (Sparkle blend: Limonade)

This one is for my little granddaughter, Alice,
and she's definitely my little ray of sunshine!
She's the absolute joy of our lives and we're all just completely smitten.
She's too young for the card at 8 months old,
so I'll have to put it away for her ♥
Thanks for stopping by today!
Big hugs, bigger blessings ♥
