Stampin' Up! Here Comes The Sun Stamp Set - #TGIFC197

Hi everyone! My name is Carolynn Sander. I am a Stampin' Up! Independent Demonstrator from Calgary, Alberta, Canada. The TGIF Team is at it again with another inspirational colour combo! Come on over to TGIF Challenges site and have fun creating with us! We would love to see how today's brights inspire you!

If you didn't already know this about me, I cherish anything that has to do with sunshine! I love enjoying the sun, but I also have passion for all things that bring light into my life! Today's colour combo was perfect for showcasing a bright card that is full of love and light!

Can you guess who I created this card for? Well I am blessed to be the mom of three pretty awesome kids! Yes they are growing way too fast, and if they were to read this they would think I was so cheese! But regardless, they are all my sunshines! 

I am one of those mom's who would always do my best to sing my kids to sleep when they were little. I never understood this modern day "Sleep Training" thing. I really do think that what our children need most these days is to know that they are loved. If that meant I had to hold them for hours, and snuggle them endlessly as I sang them to sleep then so be it. Don't get me wrong, we are very human. Bedtime wasn't always pretty. It was actually quite messy. But what I remember the most, & what I hope my children also recall in their minds, are those dear moments. Those moments when I held them close. Not just to comfort them, but also myself. Those moments when I sang "You Are My Sunshines". Sunshines because I am blessed to have 3 rays of sunshine in my life. I might have sang a little off key. But that's what makes us human. Those off key moments where we are vulnerable and share our love with those little pieces of light. Light comes to us in many forms. My sunshines are my light.💖 Where does the light shine from in your life? Even in the darkest times, we all have a glimmer of light.✨  

Thank you so much for visiting today! I hope that you leave here feeling a wee bit inspired. Remember to stop by the TGIF Challenges site to join in the fun this week! Feel free to contact me if you have any questions. As well, if you are from Canada check out my online 24/7 Stampin' Up! supply shop below!
