Wishing for Sunny Days

My ideal day would be about 70 degrees, sunny, and barely breezy. I live in West Texas where we have sudden thunderstorms, haboobs, wind like you wouldn't believe, sometimes it literally rains mud because of the dirt in the air, and there's no gradual temperature change, one day it's hot, one days it's cold. So, while it does rain, it's not usual for there to be consistent cloud cover. While I prefer the cooler weather I've missed the sun. 
So, I needed something sunny.

The image and sentiment is one I won from Mark's Finest Papers that I colored with ProMarkers and Copics. The papers are kraft, core'dinations, and Provo Craft. The emboss folder is Paper Lace 2 that I sanded and distressed the edges. The ink I used for the edges and for around the image is Vintage Photo Distress Ink. The dies are Spellbinders.
