You Are My Sunshine

I felt in a crafty mood today and after visiting my BFF Jennifer I felt inspired to take on the challenges that she took part of.  

I don't usually work with sketches, it's one of my weaknesses for sure.  When I started thinking of the PKS sketch for this week I came up with an idea.  I also incorporated My Creative Time's color challenge into it as well.  

Hope you like it!
I used my PKS Super Simple Eyes and Noses set for Hello Kitty's face.  HK is from the Hello Kitty Greetings cart.  Have you guys seen this cart is now a fortune on ebay? I'm so glad I got it before it became rare, and I bought it when Michael's had their clearance on carts going on for $10. I should have bought them all :) 

I had a mini shopping spree when PKS had their 30% sale recently.  I picked up this CUTE set that was retired.  It was an additional 11% off so I couldn't resist.  I arranged the twine to follow the sketch and I tried to make it look like the rain drops were falling from the sky.

Carts: Hello Kitty Greetings
Stamps: PKS Super Simple Eyes and Noses, Rag Doll and Teddy Bear Assortment.
My Creative Time: Banner Die and Sentiment
Paper: SU!
Twine: Twinery


Thanks for stopping by!
