Sunny Side Up!

Finally Sunday has lived up to its name and has brought the sun out! Yay!
I have been waiting all weekend for the weather to clear up to take some photos of this card. 
So with out any further ado ... On with the show.

With the miserable and cold weather we have been having I really felt like something bright, cheery and sunny and as I am soo in love with these Country Home papers from  Raspberry Road I just could not resist playing with them.  Threw in a Prima flower & vine squiggly from my stash, the lace from Nana's box along with the too gorgeous sparkly ribbon, a bit of stitching around the edges and hit it all with some TH Distress inks and voila! I was happy I didn't go do the housework :))

I love these papers so I really did not want to cover them with heaps of embellishments so this is a little C&S for me but I am soo in love with it that I really don't mind lol .

Thanks for dropping into see me today :))
