Here Comes The Sun (Paper Maniac Blog Hop)


If you arrived here from Joni’s blog you are on the right track.  If not, go back to the Paper Maniac Store blog.

I’m so happy to be able to participate in The Paper Maniac Magical Mystery Blog Hop.

I have run into a lot of road bumps on the way to publishing this post.

First I seemed to have run out of creativity right before I started on this project.

Then I finally got something made and my camera battery died.

I cannot find my charger ANYWHERE!  That is bothering me.

So please pardon my dark iPhone photographs.

It’s the best I could do.

The song I chose for inspiration for my card is “Here Comes The Sun.”

The weather here in South Central Pennsylvania has been bitter cold lately.

Two Sunday’s in a row we had pouring rains all day.


Days when you should be staying inside and keeping cozy.

I am ready for some sunshine!

Here is a list of the products I used:

Recollections White Cardstock (but can I just say, if you are looking for an awesome cardstock try this by American Crafts…it has a beautiful texture.  I have this pack and just LOVE it.)

Cosmo Cricket Earth Love Pattern Papers

Labels 4 Nestabilities

Tim Holtz Walnut Stain Distress Ink

K&Co. Rub-On

Unity Stamp Co.  July 2009 KOTM


Now the good stuff.  Have you seen the prizes Paper Maniac is giving away?
