Sunshine and Laughter

Here is my card for KL Stampin n Scrappin. Being born and raised in the Pacific Northwest, I knew I had to have this Tilda as soon as I saw her. While I know us PacNW peeps complain a lot about the rain, we secretly love it and our lives couldn't go on without it, lol.

When I was in high school I had a patch on my backpack that said You Don't Tan in Oregon, You Rust. You don't really realize how much you miss the water until you're away from it. I only lived in Denver for a couple of years, but man did I miss the rain and the ocean!

Paper: Basic Grey Wisteria
Stamps: Magnolia, sentiment is Amuse
Prima Flowers, Rhinestones, Copics, and Crystal Stickles

I am doing sign ups for our Summer 2009 Bella Sistah Swap, so I hope that you will join us. You can sign up by posting to this thread in the Bella Forum. We will be starting this round Monday, June 8th and it will last til August 31st. The minimum requirement is $25 in goodies, but you can spoil your sister more if you wish. :) You have until Saturday, June 6th to sign up.

I also wanted to let you all know that my Etsy shop is now open again. I've only uploaded a few cards in there right now, but will be posting a new card hopefully everyday. It was nice to take the time off and with Catherine's wedding being done, I'll have much more time now to devote to it. And as always, if you see something here on my blog that you like, I can always do a custom order.

Well, I hope you're all enjoying your Monday! It's back to work for me...
