Good morning from sunny South Carolina! It's been a bit grey and cold for a while now, but I'm starting to see the beginnings of spring, we've had a couple days with partial sunshine. Hooray!
Following this week's sketch over at CYCI, I used some patterned paper (old pack and I can't remember who made this), and cut out the striped background using the largest stitched rectangle by Lil'Inkers Designs.
Then I took one of my favorite dies by Gina Marie Designs, (reminds me of the sun), and cut it out from a very new color cardstock by MFT, called Pineapple. The cross stitched circle is also a Gina Die and I'll link them below.
I colored up this fun little hot air balloon by Lawn Fawn, "Blue Skies". Actually, this is the first stamp set I ever purchased from LF and I still love it! The sunshine word die is from SimonSaysStamp and then a couple little enamel dots, sequins and gems finished it off!
