Sunshine :)

Hi!
ahhhhh vacation/time off work is awesome!
We've had some great weather, family time and stamping time! 
Next Monday will come quickly :(

Until then I'll stamp as much as I can!

Here is a card I created last weekend using the Color Throwdown Challenge from last week.

It's a fairly quick CAS card.
I embossed the cloud background on white and popped up some butterflies from Reverse Confetti.
The Sunshine was die cut from SU(4x) and I brushed some Wink of Stella on it for a little sparkle ;)
Stamps: Butterfly Dreams
Paper: White, Pool Party
Ink: Pool Party, Daffodil Delight, Lucky Limeade
Accessories: Cloud EF, Sunshine Wishes Dies, Reverse Confetti Butterfly Dies, Wink of Stella, Dimensionals

So Happy For You

Yesterday I was able to use 2 new stamp sets from the current SU! catty.

Penned & Painted and Sunshine Sayings

For years all I made were floral cards and then I started to colour with Copics. Solid stamps took a backseat in my collection. 
Now that time is not on my side I recognize the importance of having some quick and easy stamps to use :)

Had I not misplaced half of this stamp set, I would have completed this card in probably 10 minutes.
I honestly thought I'd lost my mind and had to get my husband to help me find my stamps. He found them....lol
Stuck to the bottom of my stampin' scrub pad....haha! 

I combined two Splitcoast challenges for this one.

Colour challenge and Sketch challenge

Stamps: Sunshine Sayings, Penned & Painted
Paper: White, Elegant Eggplant
Ink: Island Indigo, Elegant Eggplant, Rose Red
Accessories: Elegant Eggplant Ribbon, SU Brick Embossing Folder, Dimensionals
