Fun in the Sun card




Today I have a project made using the Explore and an SVG that I purchased (from Lettering Delights called Down By the Bay). The theme over at Bitten By the Bug this week is Fun in the Sun and when I saw this cut I could not resist.

Now there are MANY sun cuts and label shapes the one I used in the Cricut library. It is just a matter of making he file. As I am in the troughs of chemotherapy and do not have time for such things, I took the easy way. Something like this would be wonderful for a layout though!



Hello Sunshine is a sticker that came with this paper pack (Summer Bliss by Echo Park).

Hello pretty lady! Your card brightened up my day. The colors and paper is awesome and a combination I never would of considered.

The chemo doesn't seem to slow you down any and it definitely hasn't affected your creative juices. Do take care of number 1 (you). Sending you virtual hugs.
