Hello sunshine .......

Happy Thursday!

How's your week been?  I'm so looking forward to the Bank Holiday weekend ...... a trip across to the UK to spend some time with my crafty buddy .... a workshop with the lovely, and very talented Maria Simms on Saturday (a little bit of a Clarity fix) then I'm back home in time to spend the Bank Holiday with hubby and the rest of the crew.

I haven't actually spent much time in the old craft room this week .... lots of other stuff getting in the way!   Including a nice afternoon in town with Lauren and the little man yesterday .... we decided to make the most of the nice weather.

Speaking of nice weather ....... the challenge this week over at Less is More, is all about sunshine.
It's Theme week and the theme is .....
Hello Sunshine 

With no time to spend in the old craft room ....... CAS was definitely the way to go .......

I used the Tim Holtz Rays stencil for my sunshine.  Inked using Mustard Seed, Scattered Straw, Wild Honey and a touch of Dried Marigold, masking off the bottom half of the card first.

I then added my words .....

And a sentiment to the inside ......

Nice and simple ..... but bright and cheery!

Thanks for popping by ...... sorry it's a bit short and sweet.  I've still a few jobs to do before I leave in the morning.  Can't leave Mount Ironing any longer I'm afraid ..... it'll be twice as big when I get back and I'm only away for two nights!!!!
I've got all evening though ....... it's just me and the little man and he's off to bed soon.  Hubby's out on some work thing.  His department are having an 'off site get together' and would you believe ...... they've gone to my favourite restaurant ..... WITHOUT ME!!!!  (sigh!)  He's got some serious making up to do next week I think!

Enjoy the rest of your Thursday.

Cheerio until next time

Love the blend of those gold tone inks through that fab stencil. Paired with that crisp black sentiment is all that's needed.
Thanks for sharing with us.
