Getting Cricky Simply Sunday Challenge - "Summertime!"

Hi everyone! I feel like I'm 3 steps behind today because I'm coming off a debilitating migraine, but thank goodness for my doctor & good medication! I'm feeling gradually better & coming out of the fog. Anyway, enough about me, lol. Today is the start of another Simply Sunday Challenge at Getting Cricky! Our theme this month is "Summertime" & here is my contribution....

For the card base I used white cardstock & the "Art Philosophy" cartridge (pg. 61, size 5"). I inked the edges heavily with some VersaColor ink. The blue layer is from the same page, cut at 4.7". The sun image is from the "Enjoy The Seasons" cartridge, cut at 3". The blue layer is a pattern from this cartridge also. The twine is from The Twinery & the sun is accented with Stickles & Glossy Accents. The rhinestones are from my stash & the sentiments are heat embossed using Recollections embossing powder.

The sentiments are from the K Andrew Designs stamp set called "Food For Thought" ....

Isn't that cute? You can purchase this set - plus there are many more fabulous stamp sets available at K Andrew Designs - including many awesome new releases! You should really check it out, if you haven't already! *** During the month of June, if you spend $25 or more you will receive a FREE bonus stamp set! ***
