"Have a sun-sational day "

 Hi everyone!! So glad you dropped by :)

 We are having a challenge over at the Pinque Peacock Challenge blog and we would love for you to check it out and enter one of your wonderful creations!

The theme for the challenge this go around is "Summer" Super easy and simple :)

I absolutely love summer. I am not a winter girl by any means lol. I like it nice and warm, I can never seem to get warm enough when it's winter out. So, this challenge was right up my alley.

I  love Mickey and all things Disney. I decided to do a card with Mickey and add one of the awesome embellishments Jessica has at the Pinque Peacock Store. 

Now this is my kind of "Summer" sitting around at the beach with your sunglasses on and not a care in the world hehe.

While making this card I decided to make it a folded card ( now I can't quite remember what this kind of card is called...I'm sure I will remember it after my post goes live lol ) I kind of winged it on this and just cut my card stock to the size I wanted it and then scored the front flap in half, taped the bottom half of my image down. So that it would fold in half and my image would stand upright.

On the inside of the card I added some waves to act as the card holder. So that the top would have something to rest against in order for it not to fall down.

  The cute little "sun" that is on there is actually a burlap flower that I got from Jessica in my DT goodies. It started out as a light beige color, but since the sun is yellow. I decided to change it up a bit.  I used my Spectrum Noir markers. Which you can get at the store also :)

Have a great day and don't forget to enter your Summer themed project. You could have a chance to win a Gift Certificate to get some of your own goodies from the shop!

For my shaped card , I decided to make one in a word shape for my dad since it was his birthday.
I typed out the letters  and made an offset of the word.  Using the offset I mirrored it above  and then just slid them together and welded it for my card base :)  I made an extra offset of the letters for a little dimension , cut them all out,  put them together and all done!  I also added some TH distress inks to kind of grunge it up a little. Since it was for a guy lol .

Thanks for sopping by and make sure to head in over to see what the DT has created for you inspiration and link up today.
