Thinking of You, Sunflowers

Hello & Happy Wednesday!

Yesterday I worked on a card order most of the day or atleast until my eyes got wonky on me.
My customer asked for several packs of cards with sunflowers on to go along with this time of year.
I recently got the September 2016 Paper Pumpkin Kit off of Ebay and in that kit was a cute sunflower stamp. This is what I used on this set of cards.

I am in love with these little photopolymer stamps that are in the set, Something Good to Eat from the Paper Pumpkin. The sunflower could probably pass as a sunshine too! Since this set is for my customer I kept these cards simple for easy mailing. I'm pretty sure she mails lots & lots of cards out each week!

Thinking of You Card Set:

Stamps: Something Good to Eat- Paper Pumpkin Kit 2016, Colorful Seasons- sentiment
Ink: Crushed Curry, Chocolate Chip
Cardstock: Crushed Curry, Chocolate Chip, Whisper White
Accessories: Lil Inkers Stitched Rectangle Dies, Clear Rhinestones, Tombow Multipurpose Liquid Glue

I also want to send out a huge Thank You to my sweet friend, Mary Anne!
I received this birthday card in the mail last week and i've been wanting to get it photographed and put on the blog but the last few days have been busy. I finally got it done!
Isn't this card gorgeous?? First off I have to say that I love the sentiments she used on this card....I use to have this set, probably one of the very first saying sets I purchased from Stampin Up...moons ago! Such a pretty bird die as well as all those beautiful flowers! 

Thank you, Mary Anne & Jim! So pretty!

My thoughts today.....

Our weather is suppose to be showery the next few days so I wanted to share some pretty sunflowers to help make the next few days be a bit brighter! I love sunflowers but I have never grown any! Maybe next year I will have to change that because they are so pretty!

Well, that is all from me today!
I am back at my stamp table to finish up 2 more packs of cards then I have some more Halloween goodies to work on. Have you noticed our daylight seems to be getting shorter & shorter each day? I love the Fall season but am not looking forward to it getting dark at supper time!

Thanks for stopping by & have yourself a great day!

Very welcome.... sorry it was late. It's been a little hectic here, and work has been a bugger. Hope to get into a more regular routine soon. Love the little Paper Pumpkin set, and yep would make a great sun!

I was just thinking about this Paper Pumpkin set!!! Love this simple, but pretty card! You SHOULD grow sunflowers, they're easy and pretty! Then you have a natural birdfeeder when they start to die off...the finches love them and they're fun to watch too!
Stay dry...dreary day but I'll take it!

What a fun set of cards with that paper pumpkin set! I do like that little sunflower a lot! Mary Anne's card is a beauty too and I love the soaring bird on it too! Beautiful! Belated cards only extend one's birthday I always say :) Have a great day!

Fun set of cards! I like the way you added the diagonal brown strip, really ties in with the sunflower. I noticed the shorter days too and really dislike it! Love me some daylight!
