RSG: Hello Suns{hi}ine!

Hello friends!  

Today's post is the card-that-almost-wasn't!
I'm in such a cardmaking funk and coming up empty 
everytime I sit down to make a card - or half cards!

I finally sat down today ~ watching the rain falling outside -
so calming and serene and oh. so. green!
I stared out that window for the longest time ..
half daydreaming, half hoping to come up with a card idea :)

Once a month, the Ready-Set-Go! card group has a theme
and we create a card.
It all started here and we call it challenges that are 'outside the box.'

This month, I was the hostess and mailed out a chipboard WORD 
 and said "make a card!"
We all have a different word:  Happy, Hello and Love.

They were added to an envelope without me seeing,
closed up and I mailed it to the other 2 ladies ... sight unseen.

My word: Hello!

I love the word Hello ~ and had NO idea where I was going to go with it.
I just grabbed a ton of stencils and some Distress Oxide Inks,
blender brushes and some paper! And got to thinking ....

  Hello - Blue Skies!
    Hello - Sunny Days!
                                              Hello - Pool Time!

I decided to go with the sunburst Ray of Light stencil from My Favorite Things.

Because I didn't really have a direction of where I was going, I dug through my stamps until I found something 'sunshiney' and found this sentiment from my Paper Smooches stamp set:  Spectrum.   I love that it says {hi} in the middle!

I never even noticed until photographing this card that it's holographic!
It looked silver .... and twist and turn it a littl bit ... and it's rainbow!


You can see Barb's card and Jeanette's card on their blogs.


And if you have seen my mojo,

please sent it back my way! :)

Thanks for stopping by today!

Big hugs, bigger blessings

  1. Fabulous card Kelly! Hugs, Valerie

  2. Wish I could come up with something like that without mojo!! This is so cool Kelly - especially the rainbow embossing powder surprise!

  3. Amazing and so sunny card, Kelly!!! Wow! Love the shining of the holographic sentiment! Such a surprise having a rainbow from silver, isn't it? :D

  4. Kelly, your card is so pretty - a true ray of sunshine. The Hello looks very striking and is the eye-catching element of the card. Love it! (If I were judging by this amazing card, I'd say your mojo is just fine, BTW.)

  5. That really is a cool effect! I adore this card. And I'm with you on having trouble with inspiration - but you're amazing with low mojo!

  6. Brilliant card and love the sunny feel. Sitting watching the rain like you!! At least I haven't go out in the garden to water my plants!! Big hugs and blessings, Carol S.xxxx
