Wishing you sunshine

It's been a long and busy week full of unexpected surprises. My laptop died last weekend, so I've been using my old dinosaur to check email and surf a bit. Haven't been able to upload any pics because that dinosaur can't handle the large picture I've been waiting for my new computer to arrive. My wonderful hubby bought me a new Macbook Pro! Woo hoo! So I am currently typing on it now. L-O-V-E it!

I didn't get around to crafting much this week with our Anniversary, my Mother's birthday and Easter festivities, but I did finally finish one card this week.

I used my first Sparkle Creations stamp and she came out adorable. Colored her with Copics and used some Spellbinders dies to cut her out in an oval shape. I embossed the yellow cardstock with my Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder to give some texture. I drew the cloud shapes myself and cut them out to use as accents.

I used this sketch #16 from My Favorite Things:
