Wishing You Sunshine!

I can't believe how warm and sunny it has been in September! I spent the extended Labor Day weekend in Minnesota visiting my friends Carla and Mike and their dog Cassie. I took Monty with me. The weather was gorgeous that weekend also...dry, not too humid and warm but not hot. Where was this weather in June, July and August? Anyway, here is a pic of Monty and I in the water at the Mississippi Head Water State Park on Labor Day. He wouldn't get in the water until I went first!


And, here is a card full of sunshine as well. I used the Scattered Showers Additions set (borrowed it from my friend Tiffany) for the greeting. The small tree is a 2x2 Quickutz double die that I used for the first time. I also used a QK scalloped circle and Nestabilities Pinking Edge circles for additional tree tops to go along with the same trunk. The sunshine is a scrap of a punched border usng an EK Success border punch. Also, I hand cut the clouds from a pattern I drew free-hand.  I hope you enjoy the card, and the warm weather in your neck of the woods.
