Find Joy Everyday!

Hi everyone, hope you are all having a great weekend! I started off well today and got a couple of cards done but then I had one that just wouldn't go right! So after lots of huffing and puffing I gave up and decided to make something bright and sunny to cheer me up. This weeks Freshly Made Sketch gave me just the inspiration I needed...

...and I used another old Birdie Brown image too!

I have to confess I did cheat a little as the banner should be on top of the circle not underneath but it just didn't work that way!
I coloured the image with Copics and the sentiment is also from Birdie Brown. As I said previously her store has now unfortunately closed. I cut out the shapes using my Cameo and matted everything with Kraft card.

Thanks for looking and apologies if I have not popped by for a while but I am still playing catch up after being poorly but I am much better now. I would also like to welcome my new followers!
