Sunshine and Smiles Series

sunshineandsmiles1
Good morning!! Well, Valentine’s Day has come and gone and that means the next card making season is St. Patrick’s Day {{wink, wink!}}  and SPRING!!!  Bless that little Groundhog for predicting an early Spring 2 weeks ago…it was SOOOOO beautiful here yesterday…the kids were even taking off their jackets at lunch!!  Today’s card started out as sketch challenge, but my inspiration led me away from it a bit too much and so I just went with what was coming out of my head.  One of the biggest thrills for me as a card maker is hearing how much my card has meant to someone.  Last month I sold many of my cards at work to coworkers. Well, one of my sweet coworkers approached me today and asked if I would make her a set of cards with the words, “Sunshine and Smiles.”  It turns out this is her “signature quote” when she signs her name!  I love when things like this happen.  Another teacher who had bought a card from me (with this sentiment) gave it to HER!! LOL  She loved it so much, she is now asking if I could make other cards using it :)  And so is born my little “Sunshine and Smiles” series.  Whenever I make another card for her set, I’ll post it here :)  But in the meantime, I wish you all Sunshine and Smiles  :)

What a great story. Always wonderful to be able to touch someone through our cards. Look forward to seeing the rest of the ones you create with this fun sentiment.

Don't worry, Diva. I've got St Patrick's Day marked in my diary *wink*
So sweet that this sentiment means so much to your co-worker and the perfect excuse to make some bright happy cards to encourage spring! We're not taking our jackets off quite yet over here....!
Hugs,
