A Bit of Sunshine

Some of you are still buried in snow, so thought I'd bring a little sunshine in your life today.  We're not exactly warm enough here in Texas for this type of activity, but it's coming soon - hopefully!

The stamp set I used is from Newton's Nook and is called Newton's Summer Vacation.  For my one layer card I stamped the image and then the waves.  I sponged in some very light sky and added the little birds (from Newton's Nook Flirty Flamingos).  I added some Wink of Stella on the inner tube and then Glossy Accents. 

I'd like to enter this in the Inky Paws challenge at Newton's Nook - one layer.

After completing the above card I decided to make another one - same design with a different image.  I don't think this one is quiet as one layer though since I popped it up on the base card and added sequins.  Besides that, the twine got a little squirrely looking in the photo!    I still think it's cute though and will be a nice birthday card for someone.  I used stamps from Newton's Antics on this card.


Thanks for stopping by..........
Lynn

Love them both. Can't wait till I can do some swimming or floating in some nice water. This card will make someone's day. Your second card is just purr-fectly darling. Love the little sequins and your twine look fine to me. Wishing you a purr-fect day.

Ooh, so cute, Lynn. I love the first scene you created....liking those waves. And, the cat in the box is just adorable.
I should have made a CAS card for a challenge today but worked a jigsaw puzzle instead. :-)

Brenda said...

Yep, yep, yep, that's what I want to be doing soon! lol But it will be a few more months before it will be warm enough here to be floating around in the pool. Love both of these cute cards Lynn! You crack me up about your squirrely twine though. Hugs, Brenda

I'm so proud of you, Lynn -- two cards with images of "useless" Sassy Cats! lol Is Rambo jealous yet? Love the CAS single layer cards you do and am CASEing the style for more practice on my own CAS cards. Thanks for a bit of inspiration. You have the cats and I'm posting a single layer mouse later today. :-D

So adorable!

Jennifer Jackson said...

WOW! Two super adorable cards! I love the sweet beach scene on the first card with the creative scene on just one layer! I love the pop of pink on the inner tube! The second card is adorable too - I bet our Newton would love that bright pink box! Thanks so much for playing along with our inky paws challenge!

Monica said...

Just saw the second card, which is equally cute. Something about kittens that is very sweet.

MaryH said...

These 2 cuties did indeed make me smile. Especially chuckled over #2 with that tiny windup mousie. Great job on a one layer and love the twine bows too! TFS

Sassy Raggedy said...

I am not sure how I missed these two cards. But they both are adorable. Wonderful images. Hugs, joann

Jessi Fogan said...

These are both totally adorable! Also, why, WHY does twine do that for the photo? It goes right back to normal as soon as you've realized your pics are all wonky.

Deepti said...
