Welcome to our Australasian Blog Hop. We have all been creating with the "Sunny Thoughts—February Stamp of the Month" Stamp set. If you have arrived here from Doreen Watkins then you are in the right place.

Today I would like to share with you my project which features the Sunny Thoughts—February Stamp of the Month available exclusively throughout February 2018 for $27 or for just $7.50 when you spend $75.

The first image that spoke to me was the "You are the Sunshine in my Pocket" and I wanted to make a Pocket with this stamp set. I decided I needed a Denim look paper, so I pulled out the Enchantment Fundamental Paper Packet with the sapphire A shaped triangle things. and I cut a square and then trimmed the bottom into a point (like a reverse banner). to make a pocket shape. I then matted it in White Daisy Cardstock. I used Sapphire Cardstock to matt the whole white daisy card with a small edge of white. 

I cut the circle with my Thin Cuts—Basic Circles and stamped the you are the Sunshine in my pocket in Sapphire Exclusive Inks™ Stamp Pad. I added it to the front with 3-D Foam Tape. I used a gold thin pen (like Metallics Markersfor the stitching and 2 white enamel dots (from the Grey Gemsfor studs. Stuck it all together with Duck® Easy Stick™ Adhesive Pack.  

Apologies for my photos - I had to take the photos at night because I've been working late and had no time to take daylight photos. I really want to get myself a light box for photography so I can take photos at night or anytime of the day and have them look nice. 

Anyway...I hope you like them.

Note: While I was making this card my sister started singing the song "I've got a pocketful of Sunshine" and its very catchy and we couldn't stop singing over and over "I've got a pocket, got a pocketful of sunshine!!"... (I had to put the video here too so you could all have it stuck in your heads too). Link to YouTube. 

The next card I made was using up scraps of Chelsea Gardens Paper Packet and the white scrap cut in a banner from the opposite of the piece I cut for the pocket card (easy and no waste!). I put my scraps of Chelsea Gardens to cover the whole base of the White Cards (Plus Envelopes) Value Pack (the grey is from the Basics Fundamental Paper Packet Paper) and then I stamped Thanks with Charcoal Exclusive Inks™ Stamp Pad and the stamped the flowers in Heather Exclusive Inks™ Stamp Pad

I also used the Heather to go around the edge of the banner too. Then adhered it with 

3-D Foam Tape, finishing it off with some Grey Gems.
