Hello, Sunshine!

Happy Saturday! I hope you guys have started the weekend off in a great way. I'm on my way out to a brunch with the other women in my Sunday School class. It should be fun but I'm not exactly a social butterfly so it's a little anxiety inducing!

So today I am playing along with this week's Color Throwdown! Here are Broni's colors:



So springy, right? It's sort of spring here in middle Tennessee. Lots of storms lately, though,  and I noticed this morning when I got up that the fence in the backyard has come down in a couple of spots...great! I'll get on that after brunch, I suppose.


Anyway, so I decided to use a stamp that I haven't used n AGES. When I bought it, I thought I would use it all of the time, but every time I reach for it I get a serious mental block. Today, I think {hope} it worked out.





Isn't that huge sun so great? I especially love how it's kindof distressed when it stamps..so great! I added a few butterflies and a sentiment and I was done. None of my usual ribbon, buttons, or really layers to speak of...but I like the end result.


Well, I better get ready to get out of here. Have a wonderful Saturday!!
