Wishing you Sunshine

Oh BOY!  Here it is Monday again .  Time for the Make it Monday Linky Party . And I love it . I have been given a super cute image to play with , I have spent ages browsing through the most inspirational entries and I get to share my  craft with you .
To top all that , I get to choose some one to feature on my post here .
So hello to you .Welcome to my room and thank you for calling in to share the joy with me .

This week we are being sponsored by the fun and funky Digi My World!

      They are offering the lucky random winner a $10 gift voucher to spend in store - how fab is that?!

And the image I used is Garden Girl Penny.

For the first time I have tried SU , Shimmery White as card base and for the printing of digi image , which I coloured with copics .I then diecut with a scallop oval  die.
I agonised over which background paper to use but decided to use some card stock from the ever mounting stash on my desk ..
A green layer to mount the yellow and pink rectangle pieces before adhering the image with ds tape .
A flower from my stash , the tiny butterflys from a previous MS  punched strip , a brad and pearls from my stash to embellish .

Remember, to be in the running to win the prize from our sponsor this week just leave a comment for another entry. Be sure to mention you saw them on Make It Monday. The more entries you comment on the more chances you have of winning!
My super talented teamies have awesome projects to share with you , so be sure to visit them too. I know that they , like myself , really do appreciate you visiting and leaving some blog love.  
Now,  it is my pleasure to share my POW

While this beautiful card inspired me  , Jane , the whole  delightful post is  full of interesting photos of beautiful flowers . I love that you shared several colourings of this  same image as well. .You certainly showcased the pretty garden scene perfectly .  Thanks for sharing on Make it Monday .  
I am hoping that we see you again on this new week of Make it Monday .
Before  I close now , I share some wise words ...

Be Thankful ..
Be thankful that you don't already have
 everything you desire . If you did , what would
  there be to look forward to ?

Catch you again soon ,cheers for now , Shirley-Anne .

Sunshine? It sounds fairly familiar. Is it normal to have ducks swimming on your driveway? If it doesn't end soon, I might require the assistance of this gorgeous and cheerful card. :)
Your POTW is tops!

A very cute image Shirley Anne, and what a nice sentiment. I have a lot of friends in UK who could do with that right now. We have very high winds this week, but at least it is warm and sunny. UK has regional floods again and this is often their best time of year! Perhaps I should send a few "Wishing you sunshine" cards over there. Kate x

How cute is that, Shirley-Anne... love the four panels of paper behind the lovely image.

Did you see that my last post had your paper? Such angels surround me who inspire, enthuse and hold my hand along my journey called life... How blessed is that, hope Doug is better.
Sorry that my hands get tired sending emails so I just blog and leave lots of love...Hope you don't mind that, dear friend.
