''BRING ME SUNSHINE'' - A POSTCARD


Hi

Husband went out for the day today.....whoopee, bliss.........so after some mundane chores I was able to play and get some crafting done........brill.
I made this for the Gingersnap Creations - Sunshine challenge. The Postcard has been given the T Holtz distressing paint dabber treatment re Compendium of Curiosities and the Tag has been stamped with a second-hand stamp I bought the other day (from Belle's Bits) by PaperArtsy which was in tune with the way I was thinking......... distress inked the tag on gloss paper.

Now I can't stop singing that song Bring Me Sunshine in Your Smile and doing the funny dance that goes with it...............how sad is that........lol.

Thank you for popping by and hope everyone has a Happy Weekend. Annette x
