Sunny Days

They really ARE sunny here right now. We're looking at 40+ degree centigrade weather this weekend - eeeew!

A friend here has embarked on a trip down to New Zealand, where she will be cruising around to various islands on a large catamaran. Wow. I can only imagine! A trip like that required a card, and this is the one I made for her. 
 
Sunshine

I really loved the way Maile Belles used the dotty image over the sunrays in one of her DT projects when this stamp set was released. I think it adds so much to the image.


Sunshine Deet

And of course - this card isn't really about sunshine, but a trip - so the inside looks like so:

Sunshine Inside

No rocket science here. Just happy wishes and some sunshine :0)

With so many of our thoughts turning to the U.K. with the Olympics happening there, I thought it would be fun to play in the A Passion for Papertrey Challenge blog this week. It's all about summer. 

This is also heading off to play in Casual Fridays CFC64 - On Cloud Nine (Things you'd see in the sky).

Hope your day is full of blessings and sunshine! Thanks for stopping in!
