Sending Sunny Thoughts...

Hey Everyone.
I have a last minute entry into the Sweet Shop Sketch Challenge.  I planned on doing it sooner, but I dislocated my pinky and it is hard to craft with a splint on it.  It is doing much better though. :)  I am also entering this into Paper Playtime which had the challenge to use an umbrella, and a spring die cut challenge at StuckonUsketches, plus a Easter/spring challenge at More than favors, wacky Wednesday challenge. Finally at Queen of my Craftroom we had an impromptu challenge for us DT members to make a summer card using orange and turquoise.

Here is the sketch...
  



I think spring and summer go together, plus here in MN we get lots of rainstorms even in the summer so the umbrella is perfect for spring and summer. It was a file I cut on the Wishblade.  I cut the circles on on their too, just eyeballed them.  Did some embossing on the big shot. The sentiment is from K Andrew Designs  the set is Splashtastic Summer.  Which is one of my favorite sets. :)  The best part is right now there is a sale!!! Save 20% off on the already low prices. the code is letshavefun  Know what else... right now there is a guest designer position up for grabs. Go to Getting Cricky and Kristal has a fabulous video for you with all the details.  There is also one day left to enter our Simply Sunday Easter challenge. :)
