Hello Sunshine!

Ahh. Don't you just love summer? We're into the second day of June and it's finally beautiful, sunny and warm. It's about time if you ask me. With all this gorgeous weather outside, it's hard to concentrate on doing any work! Especially school work, let alone my favourite work..CREATING. Have a few posts today for you! How exciting!

First up: A congrats card for my best friend Chels! I had just gotten a new Prima pack of papers, their Fairy Tales line... (I can't think of the correct name at the time, but I'll have to look it up for you.)

I'm still attempting stamping.. this time i used a 'dream' and 'congrats' stamp from Inkadinkado's "Clear Frames" stamp set. I stamped it in Smoke Blue to match the background paper, and then inked over in white, which isn't too visible but if you tilt it in the light it shows up. I think it was a cool effect..
The polka dots ( I just LOVE polka dots these days...) strip is raised with dimensionals..
Since she likes ladybugs, I used these cutout leftovers instead of the cutouts themselves.. this way the sentiments can be seen still!I loved the overall effect!

For all you Die cut machine loving people(myself included) save the leftover cutouts.. you can use them in SO many different ways...

Thanks for checking out my post for today!
