Bring me sunshine ...

... This card is for two challenges - one a familiar and favourite and one absolutely brand new:

There were lots of ways I could go with the cue word "sun", and in the end I went with the phrase that was running through my head "bring me fun, bring me sunshine, bring me love!".  Now, if you're British you probably remember this from the song that Morecambe and Wise used to sing - so full of joy and laughter!  I made the sentiment on the PC and then coloured it by hand, cut it out with nesties and mounted it onto a Spellbinders frame.  I stamped the sun twice on two colours of card, fussy cut and glued them together and finished off with this sweet little heart.  


Stamps: Waltzingmouse - Vintage Labels 18, Half Baked Gingerbread Joy; Sun stamp free with craft magazine
Inks: Chocolate Chip, Pear Pizzazz
Spellbinders: Ovals Sm (S4-112) #4, Labels 18 (S4-310) #4
Accessories:  Stampin' Up! card - Daffodil Delight, More Mustard; Card from stash

Here are the challenge graphics and, at the bottom of this post, I've posted a clip of Morecambe and Wise singing Bring Me Sunshine - this will bring a smile to your face and fill you full of joy!  Such a fun video!  Have a great day.

I knew you were thinking Morecambe and Wise as soon as I read the sentiment - that song always makes me smile! Fab card.

I can`t hear that song without having images of my dad howling with laughter at Morcambe and Wise. He loved them.
