Before I get into my card I wanted to tell everyone that it’s sunny again here in North Florida. Debby brought our county 10″ of rain in just 5 days! The storm created some flooding which was bad but, also much needed rain. Our area of North FLA was in a severe drought for the last few years. We went from being in a moderate/severe drought condition to no drought at all for our area in just a few short days! I feel for all of those who are suffering from water damage in their homes right now but, our state really needed the rain. Sometimes you have to look at the “sunny” side of things even when that thing is a Tropical Storm.
I love this cute penguin by Torico. He reminds me of the smooth talking penguin from the Madagascar movies. “Smile and wave boys. Just smile and wave.”
I decided to create a subtle version of patriotic colors for this card. This way I can send it out for a Fourth of July card for one of my nephews but, I can also use the duplicate version (I usually make more than one of each card I make) for summertime birthdays. Of which I have many. (20 to be exact!)
I am entering this card into the Simon Says Stamp Sporty or Patriotic Challenge and also into the Card Making Mamas Color Challenge #48
This is just sooo cute! Very clever using the “patriotic” colors in a subtle way… very smart. 🙂 Thank you for joining us over at the Simon Says Stamp challenge blog this week!
This is simple and cute!:) The embossed circle panel added great touch. Thanks for sharing.
