hey there... sunshine!

Hey there!!  We have been enjoying some sunshine in my neck of the woods.  The kiddos have only one week of school left and they are counting down the days!! Can't believe how fast the school year has gone by.  My oldest survived his first year of high school... YAY!  I can't tell you how happy I am that his is attending the same high school that I did.  Anywhoo... I do have a card to share.  This one is for CASology (shine) and Time Out (Summer with a twist, but I didn't include the twist). 

I recently purchased some Amy Tangerine products (from the Cut & Paste line) from Peachy Cheap (I love Peachy Cheap! Check them out here for their daily deals on papercrafting products.) and one of the items was a set of wood veneer pieces.  I decided to use one, along with a piece of patterned paper from the 6x6 pad.  The stamps are from the Clearly Whimsy Stamps set Happy Hello.  The patterned paper was cut and matted with some rustic white cardstock and then adhered to a kraft card base.  The speech bubble tag was adhered and the sentiment "hey there" stamped inside.  I stamped the sun, trimmed it out, adhered yellow sequins in the center and then adhered it to the tag.  Super simple.

Thanks for stopping by...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI kraft & rustic white; Patterned Paper:  Amy Tangerine Cut & Paste; Wood Veneer piece:  Cut & Paste; Sequins:  Ellen Hutson; Inks:  Memento & Stampin Up!; Stamps:  Clearly Whimsy Stamps
