celebrate sunshine

Hello my lovely readers! I made four cards tonight! I was so glad since I have gone through a weird spell while moving to a new room. Does that happen to any of you? It takes a while to get used to a new place!

So I had the 2S4Y sketch in my head with this, but, as usual, I did not stick to the sketch too well! I still wanted to mention them and their amazing sketches! Talk about inspiration! Thanks 2S4Y! :)Okay, you all know that I love American Crafts. Well, mixing Heat Wave and Dear Lizzy makes me happy happy! To create the pennant banner, I stamped it in multiple colors and cut out the pennants to create a colorful banner!
How awesome is this Maya Road chipboard?! I used Tombow Mono Glue for the first time. That stuff rocks. Then I used my exacto knife to cut the inside parts of the bird cage and the Basic Grey filing set to make it all pretty since I am not best with the exacto knife!

I absolutely love the sentiment. Do you hear me SoCal?! I want to celebrate sunshine! :) I hope you guys enjoyed the new American Crafty goodness! They did such an amazing job with this release. Thanks for the smiles, AmCrafts!
