Sunshine Monday

Good Morning everyone! Happy Monday - should be a short week for some with the Holiday this week. Can you believe it's already Thanksgiving? Ugh!

My card for today's Sunshine Monday installment is featuring an adorable stamp in the Christmas collection. It's called A Visit from Santa. This sweet little baby is snuggled in bed and just outside the window Santa is stealing away in the night, off to make his next visit.


I used a sketch from a site that's new to me. Great sketch and a challenge blog I hope to visit more often. It's called The Crafty Pad. They also have a store of some really adorable images, I'd never heard of this stamp company before, but they are definitely worth exploring!

I colored the image with Copics and Prismacolor markers. The sentiment is computer generated that I strategically placed in my word document so that it printed where I could easily trim the entire piece to layer over the base. My daughter was upset me with that I cropped the dog out.
You can find the new home for Sunshine & Giggles here. Don't forget to visit Janice and the rest of team to see what they have to share with you. And there's still time to apply for the Design Team, too.

Thanks for visiting!
