Sunny Day CASE

  Well it is a bright sunny morning here in Richmond.  Cold but sunny.  And only in the south can school be cancelled 2 days in a row for an inch of snow!  On Monday they were prepping us for 3-6 inches.  They cancelled school for Tuesday on Monday night at about 9:30.  All day my boys sat at home waiting for the snow to play in.  It flurried a little and then about 5pm it snowed a a dusting on the ground.  It snowed a bit more but it was that fine dusty snow that just blows around and doesn't really accumulate.  Again, school is cancelled and there is barely enough snow to warrant putting on boots!  Oh well...the boys think it's funny having a 5 day weekend!  At least it's cold so the snow won't melt immediately like it usually does.

  Since we do have some sunshine I'll show my CASE (copy and share everything) card of a punch art sun.  If you're an avid blog hopper you've probably seen this card and this card by my stamping buddy Jennifer Timko.  It was so cute I just had to make one myself.

  The base of the card is Soft Sky and I made the clouds by cutting out the thought bubble from the new Word Bubbles Framelits and embossing them with the Sale-a-bration (SAB) Decorative Dots folder.  To make the grass I took a strip of Old Olive and used the Fringe Scissors (Occasions catalog) to cut almost all the way to the edge but leaving a small strip intact to hold the grass together.

  The sun is a Daffodil Delight circle and the rays are stamped with the Banner Blast set (SAB) and punched out with the matching Banner punch (SAB).  How cool is it to get these 2 coordinating products for free starting on January 28th??  The sun is popped up on dimensionals.

  To finish this card I added the 'love you so' sentiment from the Geometrical set (Occasions catalog), flagged the end and threaded some Old Olive 1/8" taffeta ribbon through a Soft Sky button.

  Thanks to Jennifer for sharing her creativity!
