Just Because...& Hello

***This is my second post for today, 
please scroll down to see my Clearly Whimsy March release post!***


Hi everyone!


I love bright and bold colors and am so ready to see them outside my window.  Or at least some green instead of white.  I am a huge fan of rainbow colors so that is what I went with on my card.  Using the Hello Sunshine set by Hero Arts to stamp the daisies and sentiment.  To add some fun I cut a frame from Sunshine Layers die by Wplus9.  Finished off my card with some sparkling clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh!

My second card for today is for Lil' Inker Monthly meet up challenge & CASology.  I hope this is CAS enough?


I am dreaming of a tropical vacation especially when the weather man says we are getting 5-10 inches of snow tomorrow.  NOOOOO!!!!   

I used the AWESOME Wonky square dies from Lil' Inker Designs on my card.  LOVE these!!!  I also used the Palm Fancy die from Hero Arts.  The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink.

Thank you for visiting and have a great day!

Paper: Black (PTI)
Ink:  Hibiscus Burst, Orange Zest, Daffodil Delight (SU), New Leaf, Hawaiian Shores (PTI)

    I am trying hard to put more colour into my own cards, so it's lovely to see how you combine all those gorgeous inks. Thanks for the inspiration.
