Eye Am Seeing Eyelets

I don't know about you- but there are just some things that stick with you for life. When I was a kid, watching the news on WJZ in Baltimore- there was a song that they revamped for a certain weather man- the song was My Girl- by the temptations- and they sang-
I've got sunshine on a cloudy day
When it's cold outside, I've got the month of May
I'd guess you'd say
What can make me feel this way..... BOB TURK, whoa whoa, Bob Turk! and it's stuck with me all these long years.
So of course I was singing along with my memories as I was making this sunshine card!
I wanted to play along with the challenge over at Cute Card Thursday- my first time playing,
and their challenge was to use eyelets on your creation. When I looked at this Amer. Crafts paper I thought of a sun with these dotted circles, so I made it the main part of my card.

I added strips of Bobunny dot cardstock as the rays, piercing them all. I also added these K&CO chipboard glittered clouds, I have a couple close ups to show the glitter off.
I also added an Amer. Crafts label, then some EKsuccess letters in green and MM tiny type letters for the Hey There part. My We R Memory Keepers eyelets were punched and set with a cropadile- HEART HEART HEART that tool- well worth it's cost. and to finish the piece I added a bobunny button to the middle of the sun.
thanks for coming over!!
