You are my sunshine....

Hi all! Hope you're spending time with the men in your life that are also great dads! I actually made this card for my hubby. I was down in my craft room and he pops in as I was making it and says -- Oh, I like that. Then, it dawned on me - "Wait, you're not supposed to see this!" I laughed and said - Great, cuz I'm making it for you. So, pretend you didn't see it!! He laughed.

I created this card with some fun decorative paper (Kaleidascope), some ribbon (American Crafts)and some watercolor paper (Strathmore, 140lb. cold press). I actually stamped the image - twice. I stamped it once on a piece of watercolor paper that I cut out with an oval Nestabilities die and then again on a scrap. I needed the umbrella in this stamp to pop up! I colored it with watercolor pencils and then blended it all with an Aquapainter. The "sand" was done with a stipple brush using Ranger Distress Ink in Tea Dye. I added some "white caps" to my waves with the help of some white Liquid Applique. I also cut a strip of paper with my scalloped scissors and then used the "wrong" side to create my "wave" strip of paper that borders my ribbon. After I made my card, I though -- I wanna go there! :-)

This set is so fun. It's the free with three set. Check it out HERE. It's called "You Are My Sunshine." The good news? Next Friday, when new images are released -- you'll be able to purchase this one!

Hope you have some sunshine in your lives! Enjoy today! We're barbequing and the kids want to take their dad and grandpa bowling! So, off to the lanes we go!
