You are my Sunshine!

You are my sunshine...
that is the name of my cards I share today.

Happy May, friends!
I sharing a few more cards with May Card Kit from Simon Says Stamp.
You know me, I never stop at making just one or two with the monthly kit!
 You can get your regular monthly subscription here.
My first card is a little different. Instead of using the individual sentiment stickers that come in the kit, I used several of them and made an oval die cut.

This is great to use as a focal point.
you are my sunshine-001

For the sun, I gold-embossed and then applied 2-3 shades of SSS inks. I then fussy cut it. The flowers were paper-pieced. Since the font is quite small, I stamped it 3 times from lightest to darkest.

My 2nd card is a scene card. It has the similar approach as the first.
you are my sunshine
 The plaid pattern paper just makes everything fun and easy to create, don't you think?
A very exciting event is happening tomorrow!!
Thanks for stopping by!

Clever use of those stickers as a focal point. It really looks great. The paper piecing on the 2nd card is terrific. Love the plaid you've used.

The plaid paper is happy, actually each card is happy too. We are having a cool, gray day and your cards put a big smile on my face.
