Fun In The Sun

We have a challenge for you over at Krafty Girls to get your ready for summer!  Just follow the theme of "Fun in the Sun."

When I think of summer I think of the beach!  I lived about an hour from the beach in Mexico and about half an hour away from the beach when we lived in California.  My family used to load up the car and we would head to the beach for the day.  Even though my husband was in New York, he also lived a similar life being a mile from the beach!  One day we would like to have some type of vacation home near the ocean.  That day is no where in sight but we like to dream :)

Shaped cards are my favorite!  I used my new goodies from SU! and my Cricut to make my card.

One of the goodies I couldn't wait to use is this set called Road To Happiness, it is so cute!! You can view it HERE. I heat embossed the car on a different piece of cardstock and then cut it out to fit over the same stamped image on the white background.  I also used my new Bitty Banners die to cut out my banner.  I am not good at cutting out banners.  They always tend to come out all crooked, so I was happy that SU! came out with a set.

I added some Glossy Accents to the windshield of the car.  It's not showing very well in pictures :( I finished off the card with some twine from the Twinery.
