You are my Sunshine Card

Did you know we  are a week into March already!!!!
One thing I have noticed with me being Retired. Is that the months kind of run into each other.
When I worked, I would have to bill the customers at the end of the month and then balance month end.
It was like the period at the end of the sentence.
Well I don't have to balance so its like my month doesn't end.
Don't get me wrong, I am definitely not complaining ;)

I put a card together tonight. It took me about an hour.
You would think that it was a quick card to make.
But the image was already coloured, the tree was cut out and the scallop circle was a left over piece from my last card, lol.
I thought the large circle looks like the sun :)
I had the black scallop already cut and placed it there, then thought ohhh I need some yellow. Then looked in the paper pack and there was some pattern paper with this circle pattern on it..bonus ;)

I had coloured this image months ago.
My friend Sybil was having a challenge and I was going to join.
Actually I was going to put in 4 cards, one for each season, as her challenge was to make a card for your favourite season...well I didn't make the deadline :(
The tree is a die cut. I trimmed the branches so as not to interfere with this cute girl, who I coloured with my Copics :)

I see I need to change my blade on my paper trimmer.
I swear those blades don't last as long as they used to.

Here is the inside of my card.

I am still battling with my cold.
So nice to answer the phone and my family or friends on the other side tell me I sound like crap....I am so loved, lol.
I am soothing my throat with some hot tea with honey. I don't normally drink tea, but do enjoy it when I'm not feeling my best.
Hopefully Tink. will help me feel like myself tomorrow :)

Onto My Day:
I didn't do much.
Napped and caught up on my emails.
And got Heather to make lasagna for dinner.

Hope you all had a creative Tuesday :)

Tracy :)


  1. Cute! The tree die cut is so cool! Do you like ginger? Take some fresh ginger and steep it in hot water along with the honey- yummy and helps with soar throats as well. (my son especially likes it!)

  2. Hey there Tracy, your card is adorable, love the tree die! The little girl on the swing is so cute! Now what I'm wondering is how did you spread your cold to me through texting? hmmmm? lol
    Thanks for the shout out my friend, take care and hope you feel better asap! Sybil

  9. So, so sweet! I love how you did the tree. You are so right about trimmer blades not lasting as long as they used to. Frustrating when they tear up the paper.
