Basking in the Sunshine

A couple days ago, we went to the park to enjoy the sunshine. You should have seen it! The sun was out. The grass was green. The sky was full of fully white clouds. I'm really really enjoying this weather and I'm hoping it sticks around for a while. Today, I'm sharing a couple more fun sunny cards with you all.
Here's a card I made with my Practicing Creativity set, You're Dandy. I love this set! It has sold out TWICE! Love these stamps, they are so easy to use! The DP here is all American Crafts Heat Wave, as is the chipboard sticker sentiment. The ribbon is from Joann Fabrics. The die cut is Nesties Label 8.
The next card I made uses a super cool Hambly screen! I used Love My Tapes adhesive to attach the screen to the cardstock and you can barely see it. The ribbon is from Joann again. The stamps are Unity Stamp Co. And again, the chipboard sentiment is American Crafts. I did the edge on this card with a decorative scissor. It's kind of a tiny pinking with waves in it. That's probably a horrible explanation. I think it's kind of edgy so I used it on this "boy-ish" card.

And a few pictures from the park. Just in case you were starting to forget what the kids look like. ;)

Beautiful park by our house.
