AHSC #46 – Bring Your Sunshine

I was talking with my friend Betsy the other day and she asked “remember when we used to do the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge all the time?”

I did remember and I still go look at the ahh-mazing artwork there every week, but I just haven’t felt like doing any challenges lately.  Then today I looked and she had participated so I thought “what the heck, why not?”  I headed for the craft room as soon as I had my pizza dough mixing in the bread machine, printed the challenge and put my thinking cap on!

This is the sketch I had to work with and sunshine immediately came to mind – probably because we’ve had some  too many gray days here in the great Pacific Northwest!

I had recently reorganized my stamp room and remembered seeing some retired “Surf’s Up” paper and thought I’d start there!  I then located a sunshine image on the Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge and pretty soon I was on my way!


Lately, I’ve tried to kick up the inside of my cards by adding images and a little glitz!  Here I stamped the sun in Goldrush and the sentiment in Sky and added some Teal Shimmer Trim for a little pop!


Thanks for stopping by for a little sunshine – I hope you’ll also take time to visit the other challenge entrants over at the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge Blog!

  2. Love this card! The sun & sky and the surf’s up paper that looks like water – it’s a beautiful sunset! Love the inside of the card. I must remember to “do” the insides!


  3. Love this!!!! Almost feels like summer! Me thinks you were inspired by your new patio, too, and not just the sketch!
