Hello Sunshine!


It's spring, and time to kick up your heels and get outdoors in the sunshine! Today I have a card that makes use of a fun Penny Black cow & frog image as they're having fun in the sun. The panels of Pool Party and Island Indigo were cut with Gina Marie Designs stitched squares. I pulled a pre-cut stitched sun die cut from my doodad box and used MFT stitched circle dies to make the orange center. The frog is a brad, and the mouse is a Gina Marie Designs die cut that I added just for the fun of it.


I hope the sun's shining where you are today - it's beautiful here in PA and I'm loving it :) Thanks for stopping by and make it a great day!

This is an adorable card Carol! I love that the cow and frog are out frolicking in the warm sunshine. Too cute! I also love your cute brads, they just don't get any cuter! I am indeed enjoying this glorious week of nice warm sunshine here in PA!! Mowed yesterday as well as sat outside and did some reading. Will be taking my granddaughter out this afternoon. Hugs, Brenda

HELLO, my love! I'm elated to show up today and see this positively radiant little creation by wonderful you. (I'm on paper-craft restriction, in order to get paintings done - this is making my withdrawl even more difficult - LOL) I miss you like crazy, but seeing your creations has ALSO given my very happy thoughts for the day. Thanks for the love, sweet friend!

A froggie brad! Too cute. What a fun card. Indeed, let's dance with the cows in the sun. Just maybe keep an eye where you step.

What a fun card Carol. Love how the cow is jumping over the frog. We have warm temps today in Philly area and I can imagine all the planting being done in your area. That frog brad is darling. TFS
