Let your light shine...and the mid-week throw down.

This last weekend I went to my very favorite LSS in Beaverton, OR, The Peddler's Pack.  It's hard to go there and not come out with a bag of goodies!  Someone had posted a card with a circle with ribbon snippets fanning out from behind and it made me think of a sun, so I went there to specifically to find a "You are my sunshine" stamp.  Well, alas, they did not have one anywhere, but the owner  said they could custom make me one on the computer right then and there!  And I could have it the very next day.  Yow!  Unfortunately, I was not going to drive all the way back to Beaverton the next day (about 20 miles from my house), so she said she could pop it in the mail.  Monday was a holiday, so it took 2 extra days to get to me, but there it was, in the mail Wednesday!  AND The mid-week throw down was for light, or sunshine, or light bulbs and it was MEANT TO BE!  Can you say serendipity?  Enjoy my take on the theme.

Thanks for stopping by.


  1. Love that gold embossing - adds a great reflective element!!!

  2. Love your ribbon sun rays! Two great cards! And I really love that sentiment!

  3. What a great story about the stamp you had custom made. The swirls on the blue of your first card make me think of a breezy summer day and I like the idea of ribbon scraps for sun rays on the second.
