Hello Sunshine!

A very good friend of mine at work is lucky enough to be going to Hawaii the first part of May & I wanted to put together a little "I'm happy you get to go play" card (actually, my thoughts were "lucky dog! Wish I could fit in your carry-on! lol!) And since the weather has been sooo icky here lately, Hello Sunshine seemed to be the perfect sentiment! (she keeps me filled in almost daily how nice it is in Hawaii right now!)
The sweet image is Beach Time Patsy from Stamp Fairy- isn't she so cute! I colored her in w/ my Bic markers & also w/ colored pencils then added a little glossy accent to her tube to give it some shine. All the DP is DCWV & the sentiment is from 2 different sets by The {Stamps} of Life. I used CTMH ink in Creme Brulee on yellow cardstock for a tone on tone sunny look. I am entering this on Stamp Fairy Challenge "For the Girls w/ a sentiment"; CPS #214 sketch, My Grafico "Anything Goes"

  3. Hi Candi, this card is adorable, Patsy is one of my favourites and this card is really cute. I love how you've cut her out and raised her on pads. I like to do the same with my images. I wish I too was in Hawaii !!! Annette xx (Stamp Fairy DT)

  5. Hi Candi! Thank you so much for your kind and encouraging words re: my vertigo. I'm sorry for your friend. :( Do you know if she's checked into Vestibular rehab or not?Just curious if she did and it totally didn't work for her. :(

  6. What a wonderful card Candi! I just love little Patsy anyway and these new summer theme digis featuring her are some of my favs. I adore how you've colored her and added the lacquer to highlight her floatie. Perfect sentiment. Hopefully your friend will bring some sunshine for all of us suffering from a late and cold Spring :) Thanks for entering this wonderful card in the StampFairy challenge. I hope you'll join us again.

Your kind words are greatly appreciated! :) Candi
