Desperately Seeking Sunshine



I'm one of those people whose mood is definitely affected by the sun. I LOOOOOOOOOVE the sunshine and when those warm sunny rays shine through my window, I can feel my spirits start to rise. It seems like this winter has been a little grayer than most and I am longing for the sunshine. Yesterday was a particularly gray day and I found myself humming the tune "Tomorrow" from Annie over and over in my head...when you're faced with a day that's gray and lonely just stick out your chin and grin and say...the sun will come out tomorrow so ya gotta hang on 'til tomorrow come what may...tomorrow, tomorrow...i love ya tomorrow...you're only a day away. Well, I didn't really want to hang on 'til tomorrow to see the sun, so I created this little card from Laura's Sketch #20 at 2 Sketches 4 You to make my own little sunshine. It really did bring a smile on my face to see that bright sunshine on the card. And guess what...the sun did come out tomorrow...it is a bright, beautiful sunshiney day here! hooray!
