You're a Ray of Sunshine

Hi there!

My son and I have been having at night what he calls "Ark Class."  (He really pronounces it Ark, it's not a typo :)) I moved my circut to the kitchen table and we work for about a half hour each night.  It's great.  He loves it because it's been our special time together after chloe goes to bed and I love seeing his excitement.  We have been slowly working on a little mini album for our favorite summer photos.  I will share it soon. 

Tonight, we made a card.  He gets excited because I let him push all the buttons on the circut and he gets to ink up the stamps. 

I found a couple of blogs that had great inspiration:

1.  Rose Blossom Garden- use the Artiste circut cartridge and an image from the letter G.
2.  Retrosketches

I cut two images of the sun and cut them so I could alternate the paper from Surf's Up.  This really is a fun paperpack.  Was not my favorite when I first saw it but I've been having so much fun creating with it!  I completed a workshop created by Brenda Rose and also completed the Workshop on the Go.  There was enough paper left over to add to the mini album beau and I are working on.  The stamp set used is from Patterned Pennants (ctmh). 

Here is the sketch used:

Thank you so much for stopping by!  Have a great week and stop by these beautiful blogs for some inspiration!

  1. What a happy card! I love it!! Makes me feel like summer is still here (even though next week is back to school for me). I love the airy feel of that wide white border and the blue water print paper.

  2. Great card. I love the sun and I love that you and your son are having "Ark" class! Awesome!

  3. Super cute card design.

  4. This is fabulous, Kim! Looks like a fun ark class to me... ;D

  5. Hey Small Town Girl! Nice to see you at the Rose Garden ... super cute card. Like how you rounded the two corners on the B&T ... really adds to an already fab card. Hope you're enjoying summer!

  6. Love your card. I like the rounded corners too.

  7. Great take on the sketch - I hope you'll link up at 52 Card Pickup this week!

  8. What a great idea. I love to create with my kids. know it is like pulling teeth to get them to create something with me. Some days I do have to admit I even beg. Love this card. It is perfect.
