Sending Some STAMPtember® Sunshine :-)

Hi all :-) I hope all is well and the sun is shining wherever you are :-)

I actually made this for a DT card for a challenge next week ,,, but I love it so much I couldn't wait to share !! :-) 

I love this new Simon Says STAMPtember® release Full Card Sunshine die and knew it would be perfect for a special blog buddy who is going through a pretty tough time right now. 

I cut the sunshine out of the front of the card and then inked a slightly smaller piece of watercolor paper with distress inks, sprayed with Studio Calico Shine and popped it on the inside. I love the colours don't you ? :-) 

I printed the sentiment on the Silhouette Cameo and coloured with Distress Markers.

Thanks for looking :-) I hope she likes it ! :-)

BTW There is a whole month of activities, blog hops and inspiration on the Simon Says Stamp Blog  for the annual STAMPtember®  event :-) Lots of give aways too ,,,, don't miss it :-)

Challenges :
Splitcoast Stampers Fan Club Challenge ,,,, Heat Wave 
The Crafters Cafe ,,, No Designer Paper ( hope washi tape is OK ) 
Craft Dee Bowz ,,, AG with a handmade bow 
Lady Anne's ,,,, Wings 

Hope you all have a great week :-)
Happy Crafting
Luv Lols x x x

Lorraine, this is beautiful. I have been trying to find the email for Simon Says as I won last weeks challenge and when I click on the email us on the blog I can't respond to that as I do not have gmail. I sent an email to an address I had but not sure it was the right one. you can email the address to me at sserrano22 at live dot com

Thank you for taking the time to visit and comment on my card for the SSS challenge, very sweet of you. I had to pop over to see what you are working on. What a beautiful card! I am in love with the colors and distress inks and markers you used. (I just picked up the new markers can't wait to get them out!). Fun way to show direction with the arrow diecut too!!!

Hi Lols, hope you and your family are well. No sun here - but that's fine by me. I love the misty, damp days of August :-)
Your card is truly awesome. Stunning colours. It's guaranteed to cheer up your friend.
