A little free for all!

Hi all and TGIF! Hope you have some fun plans for the weekend. I plan to RELAX. :-) Today some of the Flourishes gals whipped up some creations with the June release. I, am however not in that category. Can you believe I woke up to a computer crash? So, no time to create today. So, you could say the creation I'm going to share today is perfect for my attitude!!
Just an easy peasy creation! I stamped the sun and sentiment from Flourishes recent April Showers set. I used some gingham paper I had in my stash, a bit of ribbon, cute button and the rest is just matting it up. I used Spellbinders Eyelet Circles for my main mat (cut thanks to my Grand Callibur machine), cut and embossed and then sanded the embossed edges to reveal the paper's white core. The image was stamped on Flourishes Classic White with Memento Tuxedo Black and then colored up with Copics - I used the Daffodil and Water collections grouped by Flourishes and then added a little more highlighting with B0000. Oh, and you can't forget the Stickles Diamond Glitter glue on the clouds! The edge of my dp was also paper pierced. And that, my friends, is it!

Be sure to check out what the other Flourishes gals cooked up on this free-for-all Friday! Remember, today is the last day to take advantage of Flourishes New Release Bundle for June! The bundle lets you get 10% off, if you purchase the new release in a bundle. You can click HERE to check it out!

I just LOVE this little sunshine stamp. The gingham is so cheerful too Julie...perfect rows of stitching too!

I'm happy to see anything you stamp, and this card is one to make you smile! The yellow gingham is extra cheery and perfect for the image. Bet you needed a little sunshine after your computer crashed. Sorry about that. We've become so dependent on them.

Congrats on four years, Julie. Sunny hot scorcher to you this mid-day.
Computers must have all jumped in the sickie pool! Ours was in too long and now is at basis zero flair and slow as a mule at thirty below in a gale. Sun peeked out with intense glare this afternoon. Glad your sunny gingham card offers some shade relief.
Keep Looking Up!
