Sunny Days!

I love summer, (except for the heat and humidity LOL).  So I really wanted to take part in Canadian Nickel Scrap'n "Summer Vacation" challenge.  I already made a vacation themed card so I didn't want to go that direction and I thought of flowers, sunshine and bright colors for summer. This is what I came up with. 

Sunflowers cut from Walk In My Garden ...Sunny Days cut from Create A Critter and I think the sun also came from CAC.  I added some googly eyes to the sun for some character and drew in a smile lol.  I inked around all the cuts and the background paper with Martha Stewart cats-eye inks (clearance at Walmart for $6, set of 6 I think). Kraft cardstock for the card base cut to fit a business sized envelope (9x4).

Have a great Sunday!

Paper Playtime Challenge #2


I have been in a slump the past week and made nothing except 3 sunflowers...and that only because I was playing around with my new cart (Walk in my garden)..found it at Michaels for $19.99 (!!!!) They are putting a lot of Cricut on clearance, deals to be found so get over there and check it out.

Anywho....this week's challenge over at Paper Playtime (blog hosted by the lovely and talented Janis of Pause Dream Enjoy) is  "In thy face I see Honor, Truth, & Loyalty."   I knew I wanted to incorporate God but I wasn't sure how. I found inspiration over at Alex's blog You Had Me At Craft ... after seeing her card and reading her post for this challenge I knew what I wanted to do.  To me, the cross represents honor, truth and loyalty and our freedom is found at the cross.
So I set out to make it. Naturally didn't have any crosses but the "t" from A Child's Year was good enough after a wee modification lol  The rest of the cuts are from Independence Day cart. All cut at 3".  That flag is cute! All the perfect little stars it leaves behind can be used for something else I'm sure. My cat Lucy is currently wearing most in her fur right now... she insists on sitting in my lap while I'm at the craft table. She needs a raincoat.

So head over to Paper Playtime and join in the fun. This week's Queen was Mary of Cardz tv.  Haha we had Queen Mary this week, who else can say that? LOL  I just love everything she does!

Happy Tuesday!
