"I love Summer" Die Cut challenge

Woo-hoo! Here comes Summer!  And it's time for those shades and a sun bonnet! Well, maybe not the bonnet unless you're at the beach! LOL It's also reveal day over at Stuck on U Sketches

But anyway, I've been dying to use this new rainbow striped ribbon that I had picked up at JoAnn's and this seemed the perfect opportunity! I paired it with some cloud paper and red checked paper that I printed on my Cricut Imagine using my Best Friends cartridge. My top note is printed from there as well but cut using my Spellbinders. 

My sweet little sun-loving gal has been printed and cut using the same cart and elevated using multiple layers of foam squares. I wish my photo were better but the weather has not co-operated. At least not in synch with days off. 

I am thinking I will add the word birthday below Summer Sizzlin' and give it to one of my June birthday people. I have a whole slew of them! The cherries and sunbonnet were from my stash but finished the card off nicely. 

Seems I am short on words today but do hope that you will find time to play along with us at SOUS. You will have 2 weeks to upload your project. It can be a card, tag, layout or altered item. It simply must be new as of today, have a Die Cut on it and must be consistent with the Summer theme. 

Just a little heads up that this will probably be my last Die Cut submission while I concentrate on getting our new SOUS Card Challenges up and running. Those will debut in July but you will be hearing more about them shortly. 

Have a safe and happy weekend. I am hoping to relax some this weekend as last weekend was busy, busy. Got my scrapping plans all made! 

Thanks for coming by!

  3. Bright, cheery, and so pretty. What a great idea to turn it into a birthday card. I so wish I could do that. In my mind, I have to know who a card is for before making it. Otherwise I am totally uninspired. Great job.
