Sunshine - and 2 Giveaways!!!

(Edited to add: I'm linking this up with the Moxie Fab World Mixy-Matchy Style Challenge!)

Good morning! We are on our second day of unusually gray weather in Wyoming, which I actually don't mind too much because it kind of reminds me of home (in Washington state where we come from it is this way a LOT!) - so I have been enjoying the cozy feeling of listening to the rain, and I LOVE thunderstorms and have been blessed enough to get to see a few wonderful ones in the last few days! 

Anyway...thought I would throw together a cheerful sunshiny card for the Lil' Inker Designs Challenge (I also have 2 giveaways at the bottom of this post - promised it weeks ago, and took this long to finally get pictures taken!):
Here is the challenge graphic that was to be used for inspiration:


I kind of mostly used the photo in the bottom right for my inspiration.
I used Bazzil Cardstock for my cardbase, and pattern paper from Crate Paper for the cloud background, as well as the clouds and sunshine that I die cut with my Lil' Inker Dies.
I attached my clouds and sunshine with foam adhesive, overlapping certain parts while layering for dimension.
Stamped the sentiment from the coordinating set, added a strip of washi tape, and finished off with some yellow sequins.

Now...what everyone has been waiting for! Here are pictures of my giveaways! I have two separate ones, so there will be two separate winners! The first one has some stamps from Market Street, Peachy Keen, a*muse studio, gina k. designs, My Favorite Things, and Hero Arts, as well as some October Afternoon trim and a chipboard album.


The second one has some stamps from Peachy Keen, Stampin' Up, Glitz Designs, October Afternoon Market Street, My Favorite Things, and Hero Arts as well as some October Afternoon Flour Sack pieces and some chipboard frame elements.


So - how would you like to win one of these? It is super simple! 

1. Just leave a comment here! I don't require you to be a follower...  
2. ...but if you are, feel free to leave a separate comment saying you are for another entry!
3. Drop over to my Facebook page HERE and leave a comment for an extra chance to win!

That's it! I will probably draw a winner sometime next week!

  63. This is a very nice card. I live in Washington and will tell you the weather lately has been unseasonably sunny and warm. LOVE IT! Not sure what it would take before I would miss the gloominess. Have been thoroughly enjoying this amazing sunshine. I do agree with you about the wonder of a good thunderstorm complete with a few harmless cracks of lightening. Spectacular to see!!
