Dreaming of Sunshine and Smiles...July GDT Card for Wee Stamps!

Good morning my crafty friends and happy Friday, yay!

I just love Fridays, usually means the kiddos and I get more time with daddy...but he's been working Fridays and will also be working on his days off this weekend. It's not too bad though cause it's only 1/2 day today and tomorrow, plus he needs the hours with school shopping to get done soon for the new school year! He may possibly take the boys down to the river wish I could go. I don't think my foot could take the pain of walking over the rocks though. I can't wait till I can get rid of this heel pain! Hope you all have a great Friday with awesome summer weather and  a wonderful weekend too!


Now onto my newest share for today and continuing with another card for Wee Stamps as one of their honored July Guest Designers! Be sure to check back all month long as I'll be sharing some NEW releases at the end of the month!! Sylvia Zet's little wee illustrations are just darling!!

I've noticed lately I haven't done much purple or pink...mainly because I'm out of most those colors lol. So I'm trying to incorporate more girly colors into my cards...and yes I used some yellow again...more of a goldish yellow! Really don't know what my fascination is with yellow lately! Maybe because it's Summer? lol

The image I had the pleasure of working with on my card today is called "Ruby" and she can be found in the Wee Stamps shop HERE as a digital stamp! Or if you prefer rubber stamps, you can find them at Whimsy Stamps HERE!

And as you can tell or maybe, hopefully not?...I was still practicing my "Kit&Clowder" cloud technique when I designed this card. So please advert your eyes from the clouds...don't like the way they turned out, LOL!

I've used some gorgeous lavender satin satin ribbon because it's so much softer and easier when making bows! The sentiment has been heat embossed and is from "Lili of the Valley" stamps. And all the flowers I use most of the time are from "Wild Orchid Crafts"! As for the beautiful lace, I found a huge mixed bag of vintage spools from a thrift shop! LOVE awesome thrift store finds!! lol

And last but not least, the inside!
