Sunny Thoughts Card

So this week I received 2 new stamp sets in the mail - my first ever set of Peachy Keen face stamps (I went with the Everyday Character Faces) and my Splash-tastic Summer sentiment stamps from K Andrew Designs. I was so excited to play with these stamps and then the new card sketch challenge got posted over at Paperthreads and everything just fell into place.

The card is based on a sketch by the wonderfully talented Aussie Caz. The background paper is from My Mind's Eye. I embossed the blue square with a Sizzix embossing folder called Stars with Swirls. The sun element is from I Scrap Designs. The face is a Peachy Keen stamp and the sentiment is from K Andrew. I added some pen stitching around the sentiment and around the card base.

Let me take just a moment to tell you how amazing Kristal's stamps are. I had been hearing rave reviews about how cleanly they stamp and it is true. The mix of fonts and cute sayings are fabulous too. And with every one of her stamp sets she sells, $1 goes to a very worthy charity. To find out more, please check out her sentiment stamps HERE.

I hope you enjoyed my card today. I am sending sunny thoughts to each and every one of my blog readers. Your comments mean the world to me and I appreciate you taking the time to visit my blog and leave a comment.

Thanks for stopping by!
