Hello Sunshine + Winner


There's a new challenge blog that I know I'll absolutely LOVE playing at - A blog called HERO!!!
For their first challenge they asked us to use our favorite stamps and I decided to play an old (Antique Engravings) and a new favorite (Flower dot bg) and created a shaped sunshine card so I could also enter it for PaperPlay and  Hero Arts Challenge blog too.


It is also a Sunshine Shaped card for Pile it on (letter S) and I've used my favorite cuttlebug for the favorite tool challenge at Simon Says Stamp. I'm also entering this at ABC dt where it is "Anything goes".
Also I'd like to say a big THANK YOU to everyone who helped me find some new radioprograms to listen to on my sqeezebox. I haven't tried them all yet, but will and when I have more time  I'll put the list together here on my blog so maybe you too can find some new favorites. I asked my DH to say first a date and then a time and the comment closest to it was:

Such a sweet card! Love the colours.

I recommend all BBC stations - particularly 4 and 5 for talk shows and 6 for great music!

Have a wonderful day, hugs, Karin
