We’re enveloped in a soft, grey blanket of clouds today, with flakes of ‘sticky snow’ covering what was almost a spring landscape. Such is winter in the mountains. Even though it’s gloomy outside, inside I’m toasty warm and the sun is shining – at least on paper! Yesterday, after much musing about which freebie (thank you, PS, for sharing these!) to feature on the PS SPARKS Designer Drafts Challenge, I was inspired – because the sun was bright, the sky cloud free – with the smiley sun and its companion "Hello Sunshine" sentiment. Add to the mix my chicken (I think that’s what they are!) patterned paper and…voila. The ‘rise at dawn’ chickens greeting the sun’s smiling face –a pairing I simply couldn’t resist. While creating my card I was reminded of childhood excursions (oh, to have more of those!) to my grandparents’ farm, where many mornings we were awakened by the cackle of hens and roosters encouraging us to get up and get going. Wonderful memories of cherished moments…yet another reason to love making cards.
Here’s the Designer Draft:
Here's my take:
Another thing I can't resist: showing you a close-up of this adorable sun's face. How CUTE is that!! I bet you're smiling, too!
To the PS ladies who invest their time and energy to bring these challenges to us: THANK YOU!!
Thank you for stopping by - and have a day filled with sunshine - inside or out - wherever you are!!
