Sunshine, Flowers and Saturday Morning fun!

Hello Delightful Friends and Family!
Hope your weekend is going well!  It's already been a busy day with making lunches for the homeless outreach our church does every 2nd Saturday of the month, breakfast with my hubs and t-ball with our little Addy.  Here is a card I did last night for a friend on the east coast, she's been on my mind lately so I thought I'd send her a card and let her know I'm thinking of her (Abby!).

Love this stamp set from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps called Sunshine and Flowers I've been wanting to use it for over a month!  It's so cheery and the sentiments are wonderful too!  I've colored this with Copics, added Glossy Accents and Liquid Pearls (pumpkin) to embellish.  The inks I've used are Memento Tuxedo Black and Nautical Blue.  The designer paper is from DCWV 8x8 paper pad called Cafe Mediterranean.  I've used navy card stock to mat the middle dp.

Glossy accents used in the middle of the blue flower and Liquid Pearls added to the middle of the two other flowers.

I've entered this card in the following challenges:

 Here is a glimpse of our Saturday morning:  Assembly line to make a little more than 100 lunches.

A mound of bananas!

 Lots of sandwiches!

Here are some pics of Addy's first t-ball instruction through Kindersports.
