You're Sunsational

Hello everyone and welcome to Nonna's Craft Corner!  I hope you had a great weekend.  I didn't get in a lot of crafting time this weekend, but I did manage to finish up a project that I spent most of last week working on.  Emma spent the weekend with us and the biggest part of the weekend was devoted to her.  We swam, made paper dolls on my Imagine, and she had her first lesson in needlework (thankfully Hobby Lobby has kits made just for her age group).  And, we ate...oh my goodness, we ate soooo badly this weekend.  McDonald's and The Waffle House... in one day! And, just to top it off, we went to Olive Garden after church yesterday.  I need to live on tea and crackers for the rest of this week...but I don't see that!

Ok, let me show you what I've been working on. This is a card set I put together for a friend's upcoming birthday.  I love making card sets for gifts....

(click on photo to enlarge)

* Patterned paper - Echo Park - "Paradise Beach"
* Sunshine stamp - Peachy Keen
* Swimming stamps -  Lawn Fawn - "Swimsuit Season" stamp set
* Pink By Design - "Summer Vacation" stamp set
* Crinkle Ribbon - My Craft Spot
* Twine - The Twinery
*Buttons - American Crafts
* Basket - Silhouette Online Store
* Spellbinders dies

* I used lots of Spellbinders dies and Martha Stewart punches for my mats and borders.
* I also added "stitching lines" with my white gel pen 
* The sunshine is from "Peachy Keen" stamps - "Large Sun"
* The "You're Sunsational" sentiment is from PBD

* The basket is from the Silhouette Online Store - "3D Basket with handle"
* Those cute little buttons are from American Crafts.  I added one to each card and to the ribbon on the basket handle.  I've had them for a very long time, and they were perfect for this project.

* Using Spellbinders dies really makes creating layers easy!

* And here are the cards all tucked away into the basket!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  I always appreciate your visits and sweet comments.  Now, I've got to get off this computer and get busy.  I have two choices...crafting or cleaning...hmmm?  I'm thinking the dust bunnies may have to wait another day!  Enjoy your day and I'll see you soon.

Until next time,
