EIC96-You Are My Sunshine...


Can you believe that EIC is almost ready to celebrate it's 100th challenge?!?  Yep...and you know that we are going to be having some FABULOUS give aways.  HUGE, in fact!

This week's shop is Octavia & Brown.  They have some really wonderful vintage finds in their shop.  I was inspired by the wonderful yellow colors in the photos above.

For my card I used the newly released stamp kit, summer4fun from The Stamps Of Life.  I paper pieced the inside of the sun and added some kaiser pearls and gingham ribbon to finish it off.

This week our sponsor is Charleston Scrapbook Company. To participate in the challenge pick anything in the Octavia & Brown shop that inspires you.  Link your card to the EIC blog HERE.  Next Friday, Ashley will pick two random winners.  One person will will a set of depression glass plates from the Octavia & Brown store and another winner will win a prize pack from Charleston Scrapbook Company filled with Cosmo Cricket, dew drops, chipboard album and more!

Oh, I just posted a card using the exact same coffee mugs! Love how one picture can produce two different results. Speaking of results, yours if fantastic! I love the focal image sun, with your sentiment and the gingham ribbon! Love your blog too, you've got some crazy good cards and inspiration. I admire what you can do for having three boys and working too!
