You are my Sunshine : )

You are my sunshine... my only sunshine... You make me happy when skies are *blue... Join with me!!!  You never know dear how much I love you... Please don't take my sunshine away.  LOL!  Now fess up - did you sing out loud, or just in your head??? hee hee  Edited: ** Oops - 'blue' should be 'grey' (thanks Jack! Next time, you should lead us lol!)

This oh so adorable image by Elisabeth Bell for SCACD is from the Animapeeps collection.  She's called Just Ducky.  She LOVES your singing btw.

I've followed the sketch from Sketch Saturday - thanks, it was a lot of fun!  As a matter of fact, I have another one in the works using this same sketch lol.

Just Ducky is colored with copics:  ummmmm would you say pink? hee hee  RV11 RV10 RV00 RV000; blue - B01 B00 B000; orange - YR04 YR01.  Of course I had to add some bling!  I used my Quickie Glue pen and glitter for the dots on the umbrella and on top of the buttons.  For shine, I added Diamond Glaze on Ducky's eyes, boots and the 'froggy's' eyes.  Whose says that frogs need to be green?

DP is KAISERCRAFT Hippy girl CollectionCircle and scalloped circle die cuts with my nesties and embellished with Opal Paper Pen.  MS doily lace punch (I think that's the only one I know the name of hahahaha!) also embellished with Opal Paper Pen.  Have I told you lately how much I LOVE these Viva Decor Paper Pens?  Just look at all the 'pearls' I would have used just on this card.  I have tons more in the bottle lol!  The Paper Pens come in tons of delish colors too.  I'm gonna collect them all!!!

Sizzix die cut swirls embellished with... c'mon, say it with me... Opal Paper Pen :) The cute little tag with button at the top of the card is a QuicKutz die I've had a long time.  I need to use it more often - wait - I AM using it again on my next card tooooooo!  Faux stitching, ribbon, sentiment by studio g and heart charm finish it off.  Oh... I also picked up a new Cuttlebug embossing folder.  It's the larger 5 x 7 size so it covered the background cs - yay!!!  Susana has some of the new larger size Cuttlebug EFs Here.

Hi Lori, this is a super card. I love the image and the way you have used it with those fab colours and papers. I sang the song in my head, I do every time I see the words of a song on line. Only sing out loud when the Karaoke machine is on with the kids.
I am so glad you have joined us at MAWTT for my stitching challenge, this fits it perfectly.
I hope we will see you again soon with another lovely creation.
luv Brenda xxx
