You are my sunshine...

Hey, hey, hey!

If you are a long time reader of this blog you might just remember the Wild Sprout gracing today's card as one I styled waaaaaaaay back in 2009 for the TGF Design a Sprout contest. I went back into the archives to find the original post with her and man did that bring back some memories! :)

This little beach bummin' beauty is Addy and I am so excited to see her become an official digital stamp over at The Greeting Farm. She's just in time for the scorchin' hot days of summer and Addy is ready to beat the heat in her cutest bikini and settle under an umbrella with her fluffiest beach towel.
I paired Addy up with a piece of one of my all time most favorite papers ever, Bella Blvd's All Inclusive stripe. I love, love, love the color combo going on here and I am happy to report that I completely used up this scrap by cutting it up and putting both sides of the paper to work... yeah! I actually used the Garden Variety sketch challenge as my jumping off point for the design and while I may have veered away from it just a bit, the bones are still there so I'll go ahead and enter Addy into the challenge while I still have time.

Okey dokey, enjoy your weekend and keep cool! :)

Hi Amy, I think Addy looks just adorable one your card. That girl is ready to go soak up some sun and water at the lake. :O) I really love the papers that you used for her as well. Haven't seen this set, but you know me... I am always late to the party, but I still have a good time. Hope you are doing well. How's the new car? We just got done with a 6 hour thunder storm followed by rain and hail. Now we are suppose to hit the 100s today. ugh! I love the summer, but 100 is just a bit much for me. Hope you guys are a little cooler. Have a great weekend. Hugs Lisa
