You are my Sunshine

Hello friends, I hope you are enjoying your weekend, it has been lovely here with the warmer weather and a BBQ with some of the family!!  I am also relieved to say that after a month with the flu I am starting to feel human again - you have to love that...and there is always time for 'just one card' wink:wink!!

For my card font I have embossed pink card stock created using the Framed Labels Eighteen Spellbinders® 3D M-Bossabilities™ folder and the Platinum 6 Die Cutting and Embossing Machine - 6".  

The Fiskars image is stamped using Imagine Memento Ink in Teal Zeal and has been cut out by hand - fussy cut as some would say.  The image has then been popped up on Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L 3D Foam Squares; foam tape onto the the Nestabilities Oval Bliss Etched Dies using the Platinum 6 Die Cutting and Embossing Machine - 6".

The Penny Black Inc. sentiment has also been stamped using Imagine Memento Ink in Teal Zeal, layered onto a slightly larger white layered and popped up using Scrapbook Adhesives By 3L 3D Foam Squares. Want2Scrap bling has been added to each end of the layered sentiment and lace adhered under the sentiment using Scrapbook Adhesives By 3L EZ Permanent Adhesive.
