It's a Sunshine Day

There are so many songs about sunshine, right now I have the Bradys' little ditty stuck in my head, before it was "Let the Sunshine In" and as I'm typing this sentence, it's back.  If you don't know what I'm talking about, you're lucky because it won't haunt you.

Anyway, moving on...  Not sure why but this card did not photograph well at all, maybe not enough ambient light on this GLOOMY day.  How ironic!

I used this sketch from The Sweet Stop #205:
