Try Stamping On Tuesday

Super fun sketch this week on Try Stamping On Tuesday!  I was so excited that it so perfectly fit my new You are my Sunshine single stamp!  My card is so bright and cheery, I just love it. 





I know I am not alone when I say this is the song I sang to my son all through his baby/toddler years.  I did change a few words to make it more personal, but the you are my sunshine part was ALWAYS there. 

Here is the sketch we are using this week....


Details for my card--I cut two circles both the same size--one using dp the other using Pumpkin Pie card stock.  Then I laid them on top of each other and cut in half then continued to cut triangles until I had cut the entire circle--then I just mixed up the pieced and added them to a larger scallop circle--finally I came in with a black marker and added the dots around each piece to kind of pull in the dots on the stamp.
Stamps: You are my Sunshine (single stamp)
Paper: Pumpkin Pie, Summer Starfruit, Basic Black, DP
Ink: Basic Black
Other: markers, button, black twine, nestibilities 

Hope you have a Sunshine-y kind of day--it is crazy windy and cold here!

I've always loved the song and sang it to my daughter from the time she was born. Of course I was delighted to see the stamp and had to buy it immediately. I love the colours you've used--they reflect the happiness of the song. Nicely done!
