hello Sunshine

Hi everyone! I hope you are enjoying cooler weather where you are! We have had some seriously nice weather to wake up to here in north Florida over the past few weeks and I sure have been enjoying it. I'm happy to share with you today my Love To Scrap! Challenge Blog DT inspiration project for LTSCB #64 - Anything Goes! Come play with us - we know you love some anything goes! We're being sponsored this time by SweetStamps, Dr. Digi's House of Stamps and Stitchy Bear's Digi Outlet!

I've done quite a few fun folds over the summer and several autumn/fall projects recently, so I did something entirely different for this challenge. I chose the hilarious 'Deirdery's Day Off' digi from Dr. Digi's House of Stamps for my whimsical love card! Other than the card base, I was able to construct the entire card using scraps which was definitely an awesome feeling. :)

I chuckled the entire time it took to color this image because this doll looks exactly like someone I know! I just couldn't help myself - love the image and love how this turned out! The front and inside sentiments as well as the flip flop dies are new from one of the last Paper Smooches releases and I thought they fit perfectly!

I kept the inside relatively simple with a stamped sentiment and red hearts on a layered panel.

Happy to enter this card into the following challenges:

  • Cardstock/Paper: Spectrum Noir Ultra Premium White, GKD Charcoal Brown, Stampin' Up! Bermuda Bay, Stampin' Up! kraft scrap, K & Co. Jubilee double-sided paper, teal patterned paper scrap
