Sunshiny Day!

Hi Everyone! We have had wonderful sunshiny days here recently! I am loving it! I want to share a card I made depicting a sunny day. Watermelon is so good on a hot summer's day. Even though it is still Spring it feels like summer this week. We have had temps in the 90's! Isn't this little rabbit by House Mouse so cute?

Over at Simon Says Stamp the challenge is to use 5 things on your card. Well, this was a challenge for me because I tend to use a lot more than 5 things on a card! Here I used 3 dies, an embossing folder and a bow -- all my favorite things! At Joan's Gardens the challenge is to use butterflies, an embossing folder and a sentiment. The sentiment was computer generated. I think I covered all the requirements for both! LOL!

This was such a fun card to make. Thank you so much for stopping by. I hope your day is sunny and bright!

April, perfect image for the sunny day challenge, and bright fun summer colors too. Loving the beautiful butterfly. Thanks for joining us at the House Mouse and friends Monday Challenge.

Love this color combo of orange/yellow, April, as well as the embossing background you used. The bunny is a good summer choice, as it's my all-time favorite summer treat, as well. The butterfly makes for a nice, lacey addition to your card. Glad you were able to participate in the sunny days challenge with us at House Mouse!
