☼ A Sunshiney and Giggly Monday ☼

Hello everyone and happy Monday to you! And Happy Thanksgiving to our Canadian friends. ;) Betcha didn't know that my siblings were all born in Canada, eh? Yes, I am the only true Hawaiian born baby in the family besides my parents. Which brings me to my fun announcement:
I am a Sunshine and Giggle DT member! I was so honored when Janice asked me to hop on board her design team. All of her rubber stamps are made with children images, and of couse having many of them myself, I couldn't resist.
Here is one of her newest images from her store:

Isn't she lovely? She is so festive with the pretty poinsettias in hand and looks like an actual picture of a little girl. :D She was so fun to color up, I decided to put her in a holiday green dress then found this DP in my stash to work with.
Here she is up close:

I think she's just a sweetie. Janice has a new artist creating her stamps, Nicole Brekelbaum is an illustrator for children's books and has done a great job with this line!
Here is a closer look at the flowers:

I got these lovely flowers from Michael's, they originally come with red brads for the centers but I thought I'd try these yellow and white microbeads instead. Yes, I was feeling quite creative that day. ;)
There are so many new images over at Sunshine and Giggles, and also a very worthy cause going on from now until the end of October. Janice has joined many others to help a little girl named Paige, a portion of her sales will be donated to the family for Paige's medical expenses. You can read about her story HERE on the blog.
Be sure to check out the other DT members for more samples of Sunshine and Giggles stamps:
