Sunshine Card for Challenge...

Hello everyone!  I am so terribly sorry that I haven't posted anything in weeks!!!  My life has gotten a little bit nuts over the past few weeks.  I'm trying to make some big moves at work, so I've been making myself available as much as possible to them.  Which means uber craziness in my schedule!!!  My hubby has also been super busy with work lately, so I haven't been able to spend much time with him.  So that means when he's home, I don't craft.  This weekend he'll be busy with work, so that leaves me some free time to relax and do my thang!  Hehe!  My craft room has gotten a nice cleaning and reorganizing, so I feel a bit more refreshed to get into the groove.  I feel when it's too cluttered, it makes me not want to be in here. 

So with all that done....I have made my first card in like 3 weeks!!!  Since it's nasty weather out here (i'm talking tornado watches and all) I have decided to make a sunshine card to kinda wish it out of the clouds!!!  This card is being intered into the Peachy Keen Let's Face It Friday Challenge, the Paper Play Time Weather Challenge and the Paper Craft Planet Sketch Challenge

My mother was my inspiration for this challenge.  She used to sing the "You are my sunshine" song to us all the time when we were little.  It's makes me smile to think about it!!!

Lauren,
I love the card and the saying. Great job and thanks so much for sharing. I hope you are adjusting to your new environment in NC. Love small town atmosphere and you can always find scrappers, especially in small towns.

Cute card! Just moved to Hillsborough, NC from Maine myself 6 months ago. Love it here... didn't have to shovel snow for the first time ever this winter! :) Very small town but still close enough to Raleigh/Durham to go do just about anything.
In the process now of organizing my craftroom, it's getting better. Know what you mean about not wanting to go in when it's not. Love your site...thanks for the inspration!
