Sending You Sunshine

A Muse Studio Blog Hop - What does summer mean to you?

This is easy! Arizona = Sun.

Summer Fresh. Summer Clean. Summer Warm.



I used a stamp from the Swanky Backgrounds set to create waves. CLEVER...yes!

And...this set is ON SALE through August 15th!

The sun and sentiment are from the Sunshine & Shade set. I LOVE this sun! It's inked up with Buttercup & Cherry A Muse Pigment inks...then all glittered up. 1 little orange Twinkle Sticker to embellish the sentiment stands out even with all that sparkly Diamond glitter.


This is a perfect example of a Clean & Simple card (CAS).

For the Blog Hop you should have come from Amber's blog - The Neatery

Love this Lori! I'm not the best when it comes to CAS cards, but you make it look easy. I had to laugh when you said Arizona = Sun and then said "summer clean". All I had was this picture of the giant dust storm that hit you guys. . .Hope you are doing well. Best, Curt
