Hello Sunshine!

Another entry today for Moxie Fab World's Hip on Handwriting challenge.  I have had this Technique Tuesday /Ali Edwards Bring on the Sun stamp set for awhile, and always love bringing it out to use - love the mix of the fonts!  And I recently got this new Memory Box Texture Shine stencil, and thought they'd be a great pairing.

Sunshine

I simply centered the stencil on my card base, masking the lower portion, and sponged on mustard seed and some spiced marmalade distress inks, then lifted the stencil and stamped my sentiment.  This particular one is a favorite of mine, going way back to my college days........not a bad motto to live by, is it?

Then I remembered this cute sun from a company that closed its doors, called Our Craft Lounge.  So I stamped and cut him out and added him to the corner:

Sunshine with Sun

I'm not sure which of these I like - what do you think?

Thanks for coming by today - hope your week is a great one!
