Have a blast at Sunshine Lake!

Hello again!

It's a busy day around the ol' blog but I'm telling you it is soooo worth it! Today is release day for the first brand new Stacey Yacula collection of 2020 at Purple Onion Designs and I am telling you, it is definitely worth the wait. The collection is called Sunshine Lake and these wonderfully cute critters are all about celebrating summer days at the lake and on the river. Having lived nearly my entire life on the shores of a beautiful lake nestled in the foothills of the Cascade mountain range I feel like this collection was made just for me. It celebrates all the things that make lake life the best life, from skiing, swimming and fishing to camping and laying out on the beach... this set has it all. And don't get me started on how awesome all the background scene builders are too, let's just say that I've got nine more cards already stamped and ready to go that I can't wait to share with you all. In fact, I will be coloring one of those scene Live tomorrow at 11am PST over on my Adventures in Coloring with Amy Facebook page to celebrate this amazing release!

For my card today I have made a long slimline featuring Maverick and Miki pulling Gladys behind their boat as she expertly weaves her way across the waves. The Lake background off in the distance sets the scene as they race by and since I made a slimline I used the small single mountain to extend the background further across the card. Now I have never been a strong skier myself but I have many fond memories of boating and tubing with my family when I was young that this card takes me right back to. :)  

Now for the best news... Purple Onion Designs is offering the whole collection PLUS the sentiment set as a discounted bundle for a limited time. All 25 stamps (27 images in all) plus the Sunshiney Sentiments (6 sentiments) will be offered at a 30% discount. The complete bundle is $115.00 and is available through May 31, 2020. You can find it all HERE.  

Have a sunshiney day!
