Sunshine is coming...

Hello and welcome to Studio 5380.
Thanks so much for stopping by for a visit!

It's a bright, sunny day here in Southeast Alabama and I'm pretty sure summer has arrived with it's hot, muggy days and sudden, fierce thunderstorms that come and go in a matter of minutes.  I really enjoy this time of year (as long as my AC is in working order). The water in our pool is almost warm enough for me to start inflating pool floats and stocking up on summer reading material. After all, that's what I use my swimming pool for - reading and floating (and, of course, day dreaming).

Anyway, I guess all these summer time thoughts sort of inspired today's card which was created with fun things from several of my favorite stamping companies. I started out with one idea in my head and ended up with something totally different. But, I'm really liking this cute little shaker card:

Here are a few items I used to create my card:
* Stitched Horizontal Cover Up Companion by My Favorite Things
* Pool Play Stamp Set by Simon Says Stamp
* Happy Day Stamp Set by Simon Says Stamp
* Bring the Sunshine Stamp and Die Set by Simon Says Stamp
* Life is Good Stamp Set by Lawn Fawn
* So Jelly Stamp Set by Lawn Fawn

The images are all colored with Copic Markers. I added some Clear Wink of Stella for a little sparkle to the sunshine and sand castle. I also added Glossy Accents to the froggie float and diving goggles.

A cute little starfish to finish off the inside.

So...don't forget....Sunshine is coming, hang in there!
Thanks again for stopping by. Have a great day and I'll see you soon!

Except for the past 2 weeks - it's been so beautiful in the high 70's low 80's - that's not normal weather for us - but I'll take it since I know 100 degrees is just right around the corner!
