Catch every ray of sunshine


Hey Everyone, I am the Guest Designer for Ruthie's September Ninth today. If you have not visited Ruthie's blog before, click here to check it out. She is one of the nicest and most talented crafter I have gotten to know and I am so thrilled that she has asked me to guest post. Thanks, Ruthie! :-)

As this is Ruthie's Summer "Guest Designer" Series, I was asked to do a Summer-themed project. To me, Summer starts when my kids get out of school and it ends when they go back. My girls go back to school in 3 weeks and so even though the last day of Summer isn't until the 23rd (or 22nd?) of September, I am already feeling that the season is coming to an end.

Today's card reflects how I feel about Summer. I used images from the Lettering Delights' Soak Up the Sun SVG and their Vacation Cut It sets with Make-the-Cut program. I also used the LD Cursive and the LD Big Kahuna fonts for the sentiment. By the way, the sentiment and the black colored layers are vinyl. I love using vinyl for sentiments on cards because they are so easy to apply! All the cuts were made using my Silhouette SD cutter.

School starts at the end of August and I will have 3 kids in elementary school. My youngest will be going to Kindergarten! Where did the time go? :-( I am scrambling to spend as much time with my kids as possible before school starts and so I will end today's post right here. Excuse me while I head outside and try to catch as much sunshine as I can before Summer is gone.

  2. Our little ones are babies one minute, and off to school the next leaving us to wonder when the heck did that happen?

    Love this card.

  3. Love the contrast of the black to the summer colors. Great card.
