Color my world with family, friends and some time to be creative making cards!

Sending Sunshine


Hello, Since it’s still sweltering hot here in Florida I am sticking with a summer theme for today’s card. I am so ready for cooler temps! How about you? I am playing along with the ladies over at Freshly Made Sketches. This is one of those cards that changed so much and then when I was finally done with it and things were glued down, I got a better idea and it was too late to fix it. This card was made with some of the remnants of yesterday’s Manatee card.

A Few Card Details: Sentiment and Palm Tree are from the Sunny Studios set-Sending Sunshine. The little girls are called Coastal Cuties and are also Sunny Studios. I used a die cut from Pink and Main for my waves and a stencil from MFT for my other water feature. The beach sand was made with Lawn Fawn Stitched Hill dies. The tiny sun die was a last-second addition and it’s so very old and from MFT. I used Prismas and Copics to color my images.

Thanks for stopping in and Happy Friday! Nanc’

  1. This is so cute, Nancy. I wanted to play along but I just couldn’t think of anything I had with me that would fit the sketch. Using those darling girls for the squares worked so well, as did the palm tree.

  2. So cute. Love those cute little swimmers. TFS

  3. If I had a nickel for every time I had a better idea after things were glued down I’d be a millionaire! I love this fun and colorful card. I can’t imagine what you would do differently. The images embody the best of summer! Thanks for playing along with us at Freshly Made Sketches!

  4. They look like they’re enjoying that Florida heat! Don’t know what your other idea was, but this is pretty darn cute!
