You are my Sunshine x 2...CAS(E) this Sketch #169, Little Tangles Challenge #67~Die-Cutting, Simon Says Wednesday Challenge~Anything Goes, Tuesday Throwdown #291~Anything Goes, Words 2 Craft By~April Suns and April Shadows

Hello!

Okay, how did it get to be Wednesday evening so quickly? More important, how is it that April is rapidly coming to a close? I need time to sloooowwwww down!

Speaking of being slow: pick me! Again! I'm dashing in with a card I made earlier today -  crafting therapy required after my 'long day at the office' - and one made some other day. Can't remember (see...time goes so fast my thinking can't keep up!).  The "when" doesn't matter, but the "who for" does...and these are heading to the two little *sunshines* in my life, Ms. Niece and Mr. Nephew.

My first card was inspired by CAS(E) this Sketch #169, which had me 'nearly' not playing until some new Neat & Tangled goodies (a very small order of three must haves) arrived yesterday. Timely, right!


Of course, new N&T also means heading over to Little Tangles Challenge #67~Die-Cutting
Here they are...more rainbows and sunshine...


NOTE: Thrilled and honoured to be selected as a CTS #169 Favourite. THANK YOU!!

NOTE: Doubly thrilled to be Noticed by Neat and Tangled! THANK YOU! 



NOTE: Incredibly thrilled to be the Challenge Winner at Words 2 Craft By


Anything Goes over at Simon Says Wednesday Challenge, so I'm making an appearance in their gallery,

/as well as at Tuesday Throwdown #291, with the same theme.  Words 2 Craft By is inviting us to join in their April Suns and April Shadows challenge, so I'm bringing my suns over to their place.

Thanks so much for spending time with me today; your visit brings me immense joy!

  8. I know what you mean about being surprised it's the end of April already. Jonah said something to me this morning about coupons expiring soon... I checked them and they're good until the end of May and told him this. He said: "That's a month away." And I said: "Oh, right, I guess it is the end of April already...." This month went by so fast! LOL!
    Well, my friend, your cards are both super sweet and I love your fun take on the sketch! I hope you're doing well!
