My first card, I had to use this big old sun from Rise Above and matching die in Partly Cloudy as we have been quite short on sunshine out here on the West Coast and I needed a little pick me up :)   I cased this wonderful card when making it and added a few sequins from the Harvest Gold Sequin Mix for a bit of "oomph".  Needless to say, I will now be humming the "You Are My Sunshine" song all day LOL!

For my second card, I used New Beginnings and the Springtime Stitches die set, and paired them with the current Viva La Verve sketch.  Used up some scraps from MME's The Sweetest Thing, used Twinkling H2Os to colour my popped up flower (read novice colouring medium lol), and added an orange butterfly for good measure.
