Sunday Cards

What a beautiful weekend. Sunny, warm, think I actually got some freckles and sun when I went walking yesterday! Thank goodness. For my daughter, Brandy, Spring Break started. Lucky her she's going to spend the weekend with Kim (my oldest daughter-sister from another mister as Brandy calls her) and kids, then is leaving with friends Wednesday morning for a few days in Florida! I'm jealous! Next Saturday starts my son's Spring Break. We are going to meet family in Oklahoma for a couple of days and then we are headed down to Corpus for the rest of the week for some SUN and beachtime. I plan to put up my little portable canopy, pull out a couple of chairs and plant myself right there on the beach with a good book and alot of sunscreen.

First of all today I wanted to share with you my card for Card Patterns. For this card I pulled out some Core'dinations Cardstock together with some Basic Grey papers. I just needed bright and happy for this cute little image.

The sponsor:

Our sponsor this week is Little Paper Shop.
"We launched our company in April 2008 with 7 sets and 6 individual stamps, most of which are of masculine themes. Since then we have expanded our clear stamp line to include over 70 sets including our most popular {Little Cuties} line! We now stock a variety of digital images as well. Our stamps are manufactured in the US using only high quality photopolymer. Each set is hand inspected to ensure you are receiving only top quality products."

LPS is generously offering a $20 gift certificate to one random participant!

Next I did this card for the Get Sketchy card challenge this week. Once again I used another Little Paper Shop image as it just seemed perfect for the card's inspiration. For this I used Core'dinations cardstock and American Crafts Papers.
I got another layout done but am hoping to get it submitted so will hold out until they accept or decline.
Thanks for stopping by!
