Hello Sunshine!

Today it is raining..........not a good sign for our weekend of celebration! But yesterday the 1st June, I realised I hadn't made my 'June' calender topper. Thought it might be bad luck not to get it done so got to work crafting.
I have for a while been admiring the font used on Paper Smooches sentiments and am pleased to say that I have a package coming from across the pond (thanks to coz Lynn) and will have my own set very soon.

But when blog surfing this week I saw Jackie's card for the 'picture perfect' challenge at Paper Smooches Sparks. I loved this cute card and when I checked out the website I noticed you could use some of their freebies to enter the challenge. So, as I await my package of goodies, I used the 'hello sunshine' sentiment, along with the 'smiley sun' for my card.

The inspiration (see photo below) came from the plates on the wall-these are represented by my PTI cloud dies, and the sun. Plus I just loved the bright blue of the piano so I used this as my sky.
A simple but, I think, cute topper for my calender......plus I got to use the font I have been drooling over for a while now!! And hopefully, as done before the sunset on 1st June, no bad luck for me.


And here is the inspiration photo:

Have a fun weekend x

  1. So, so sweet! I love how you interpreted the inspiration photo! Hope the weather clears up, but I don't think it will put an ounce of a damper on the party!
