Saturday Reminder - You are my Sunshine

Hello friends!  Happy Saturday - we're back with a bit more sunshine-inspired eye candy for you.  Hope you find time to play along with us this week - don't forget, we're an ATC only challenge blog and you have up until Tuesday evening at 7:00 p.m. EST to link up!

For my ATC, I used paint for the sun and added a clear-backed sticker sentiment from SRM Stickers, then outlined the edges with an orange marker.  The butterfly is from Dilly Beans:

Now hold onto your hats - Sharon has THREE absolutely gorgeous ATC's to share with us today, ready?  Here goes:

Denice turned her lollipops into candy sunshine, what a great idea:

You are my Sunshine!

Let's see your interpretation of this theme!  Please remember we are an ATC only challenge blog - thank you!

The image the DT and I are playing with is called, appropriately enough, You are my Sunshine.  I kept my first ATC all shades of yellow, and I added Dazzling Diamonds glitter to those fabulous teeth:

For my next ATC, I used a Glitter Gel Pen for those teeth, I just couldn't not make them sparkly - LOL - and added white Fun Flock to the clouds.  Sentiment is from TLC Creations:

I love how Denice cropped the image and made an absolutely GORGEOUS background for her ATC using pieces of the clouds:

Chelsea's adorable ATC - love the addition of the gingham:

Those buttons make Megan's ATC even more bright and cheery, and I love the colors:

We were also lucky enough to have 2 members of Jodie's Bugaboo DT join us this week!  First up is Sandye with those fabulous popped out clouds:

And Cheryl with this cheerful little ATC:

Thanks so much for taking the time to leave us a comment, we love to hear from you.  Can't wait to see what you all come up with this week!  Peace.

Saturday Reminder - Earth Day

Well, tomorrow (April 22) is the 42nd Earth Day here in the United States. I realized some of you didn't even know what Earth Day is, so here's a link to check out if you'd like to learn the background of this environmentally friendly holiday:

We have a full lineup of eye candy for you today, please visit our blogs (click on our names) to see more of our artwork, we'd love for you to stop by!  :)

Jenn (that's me!) kept it clean and simple with an image from Raindrop Echo Designs paired with a feather in the background:

Megan always inspires with her gorgeous coloring and fabulous backgrounds:

Chelsea stuck with the clean and simple look, too, and it's just so elegant - love the black and white with green:

I just adore this image and sentiment that Denice used for her ATC, love the vintage look:

Sharon used our sponsor's image, Emo Springtime from Just Some Lines, to create this beautifully colored ATC, love the yellow bird:

And finally, our guest designer Joanne made this wonderful shaped ATC using leaves, flowers, and butterfly shapes:

Hello friends - thanks for playing along with us again, we're back with some winners and a brand new challenge!  First up, the winner of the beautiful "Girl with Butterflies" image from Dilly Beans is....
 Congrats, Kerstin!  Please send me an e-mail to and I'll get your digi out to you ASAP.

3.) Kim

Congrats, ladies!  Send me an e-mail to if you need the Top 3 badge.

On to this week's challenge, our sponsor this week is:

And our new theme is:

Earth Day!

I love Earth Day - I've always been aware of the impact we have on our environment and I recycled long before it was popular.  Then my precious daughter was born on Earth Day in 1995 and it just made my fondness for the date grow even more!  LOL  :)

So today we have some ATC's to share with you that celebrate Earth Day, and the prize will be winner's choice of either of the images we've used to create with today.

My first ATC uses Bird in Tree, colored with Prismacolor pencils and mineral spirits, my DP is from My Mind's Eye:

And my next ATC uses Emo Springtime, colored with Prismacolor pencils & mineral spirits and Prismacolor markers:

Chelsea printed her image several times, using the bird to layer and "pop" out at the bottom of the ATC:

Denice used Emo Springtime and a gorgeous sentiment that says it all:

Sharon's coloring is phenomenal, as always, love that pretty blue background:

Megan amazes me with her coloring - and this is no exception, love the pink hair and the way she combined the two images onto one ATC - genius!

And one more from Megan using the Bird in Tree image - love the blue bird and that DP - and of course her amazing coloring:

And.... we have the super-talented Joanne back with us as a guest designer again this week!  Here is Joanne's first ATC, using Emo Springtime:

Joanne's next ATC uses Bird in Tree, her coloring is just so beautiful and I love the addition of the chipboard leaves:

Link up your Earth Day ATC's below and please come visit us again on Saturday for some more Earth Day eye candy!  :)

Sharon's beautiful pink color scheme makes me smile - and I swear the girls did not even know about my "thing" for yellow butterflies!  LOL  Yet Sharon also used one:

Denice gave a completely unique look to the image, cropping and using only a section of her hair with the butterflies - this is just stunning:

And Mary's bright and beautiful ATC is colored so beautifully, her eyes look real:
