A Good Egg... "Sun" Fun!!

Hello everyone! We're back home from my Grandma's funeral and getting into our routine now. I want to thank everyone for the lovely comments, e-mails and cards!! GREATLY APPRECIATED and you made my heart smile! :)

Being I haven't stamped for a few days, I have a couple "FUN" cards I've been wanting to share... The first card has a "whimsy" look with the cute chick from A Good Egg floating in a tube. The tube, sunglasses, sun and "Sun Fun" is from the SU! Life's a Breeze set. We made this card at at Diane's workshop and Julie (SU! demonstrator) found this idea on SCS. (NOTE: if anyone knows who to credit this card to I'll be more than happy to post it and link the info!!) I added my CB D'vine Swirls embossing to the background, added Crystal Effect on the sunglasses, Stickles on the sun, and cut a larger orange beak to get more of a 3-D effect. Used my Crop-A-Dial to emboss a row of dots on my orange panel.

The second card is Clean and Simple (CAS) and fun for a child's birthday. Very basic with using circle punches, a couple eye-lets, scrap of ribbon, and small image to color on a metal tag. (Don't look to closely at my coloring, as this was done a while back before I had a handle at blending!) He... :) Click on the photo's to get a close up look. I hope you enjoy and try to have some "SUN FUN"!!
Thanks for the visit and all the fantastic comments given... It makes me smile!! I hope to catch up on my blog visits this week...

Both are so cute, but I especially love the chick kicking back in the pool in his inner tube. What a hoot!

I'm still trying to catch up with cards and emails and blog surfing. There's just been too much "rat" in the race lately... ha ha.

Big hugs,
Lisa
