Summer Sunshine

Atlantic Hearts Sketch #266.

This sketch really was difficult for me.  So simple, and yet I tried several things that ended in the trash bin.  The wreath thing really threw me.  So I looked through nearly every stamp I owned, and then decided to clean my craft table...sometimes that helps!   And there was a very old set I had pulled out last week with a dozen others. I am attempting to eliminate some old sets.  See where this is going? (cue laughter)  
This is why I save them all. sigh.

Anyhoot, I paired the Close To My Heart stamp with a sentiment from a newer Lawn Fawn set, and a cute Savvy die that was used to cover a booboo made with a blob of shimmer from the Wink of Stella I used on the sun rays.  After all that I couldn't bear to start over. Happy crafting!



  1. Love this! I am so all about summer and warm weather and this just makes me happy. After the longest 7 months of cold and winter I am so ready for sun and warm weather. Your card is great, that sun is WOW! Thanks for playing along with Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge (AHSC).

  7. Fabulous card, Dena! I also have this sunshine stamp in my collection and I don't think it's ever been inked up but you have definitely inspired me to play with it now. Great colors and perfect pairing with those adorable little lemonade glasses, spot on for a fun and refreshing summer themed card! Thanks for sharing with us this week at AHSC.
