You are my Sunshine...The Card Concept #55~You Are My Sunshine, Little Tangles Challenge #68~Anything Goes

Hello...and to my Canadian friends, Happy Victoria Day Long Weekend!

The past few days have been jam-packed with all kinds of fun, fabulous time, along with a bazillion hugs and cuddles, with my visiting family.  They'll be leaving at some point today; I will *NOT* be happy. Not even a little bit.  On the plus side, my husband and I are officiating bike races next weekend in their city, so we'll see them in four more sleeps....

Sneaking in a VERY simple card I made last week, but totally forgot to post until this morning, for
The Card Concept #55~You Are My Sunshine.


The DT cards are wonderfully inspiring, especially since *yellow only* isn't a colour scheme I use often.  The 'specific' sparks for my clean and simple design came from Nina's background inking and Laurie's pops of pink,,,

NOTE: Thrilled and honoured to be one of the three Honourable Mentions at The Card Concept. THANK YOU!!

The fabulous big sentiment is from Neat and Tangled, so I'm also heading to Little Tangles Challenge #68~Anything Goes

To all my wonderful friends: I'll be catching up on your galleries ASAP!  My laptop is a 'niece-and-nephew' magnet, so I've been trying to keep it turned off, as we know what happens when one little one wants what the other has! Still, we've managed some opportunities when they each had turns 'practicing' something on their respective word-document 'papers': Mr. C practiced typing out his name and the ABC's (he figured out the keyboard  quickly!) while Ms. T learned  (took me all of 2 minutes to teach her...she caught on to the mouse concept fast!) how to change colours (rainbow, of course) and fonts on her name and every letter of the alphabet.  My cutie-patootie smarties!!

I'm so delighted you spent time with my today; your visit brings me immense joy!

Love it - splashes of sunshine :) Kids and modern technology go hand in hand - as the saying goes, if you have a phone/computer question ask a teenager - and I have LOL!
