Here Comes the Sun

Good morning to you all in the land of blog
Today sees the next fabulous challenge at the

The theme this week has been set by the very talented SUE KMENT she has chosen

"Here Comes The Sun"

we are sponsored this week by the fabulous

who are offering a $25 credit voucher.
isn't that a great prize?

So what did I create for my inspirational piece, well take a look below, however do not forget to hop on over to the main challenge site to see all the rest of the HOT HOT HOT!!!!!! creations.

I made an easel card for a change, have not done one of these for a while.  The base layer is a chocolate brown card, with some orange Papermania papers.  The sentiment is MSE and a matching pair, perfect for a friendship card.  The pearls from the Hobby House and the little fans to match the image - made by me :) 

Here are some close ups
The Image is from the unmounted rubber stamps sets by Joanna Sheen and is called "Drinks"
Although I love the fact that the drinking mouse, is looking rather sun burnt and health where as the fan slave mousey is looking rather be draggled 

Here is the inner MSE sentiment

I would like to thank all of my wonderful visitors and followers for their inspirational comments which allow me to hop over and visit you in return.

I would like to enter the following challenges

Allsorts - Oh I Do Like to be beside the Seaside
