Summer Breeze, Makes Me Feel...Hot. It's Hot.

Hey stampers, friends, followers, and people who googled something completely random and wound up here on accident... welcome to another challenge at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!
Today's challenge is a fun one, to make a card inspired by Summer, and since we always enjoy your creations, be sure to submit them so you can WIN a $10 gift card to the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps shop!!  You know you like free money, whooooo doesn't??  My card is also for this week's Crazy 4 Challenges challenge, to make a card that has sunshine, or a sun, or a lot of yellow, basically....something that makes you think of the, I put a sun. :) Honestly, I kinda have a love hate thing with summer....I love it because it isn't winter, but I don't because the heat and my MS don't see eye to eye. 

I used the new Itty Bitty Friends set from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps, and paired it with the MME Here Is Happy paper pad. It hasn't left my desk, even though I swear I have cleaned....I just can't get enough of it!  I paired with MFT cardstock in Blu Raspberry and Razzleberry, and Bazzill Banana Split. My image was cut out using the Oval Stax Die-namics, and layered with the Decorative Doily Die-namics from MFT.  My sun was cut out using the Sunshine Die-namics from MFT, and I used Michael's brads, spiral clips, and some Blu Raspberry grosgrain to embellish with.

I decided to add some sparkle to my image, too, so I added some sparkle to my mermaid...isn't she sparkly??!! Oh, and those dots...their my bubbles....also know as Bella Baubles. I've been cleaning my stamp area and whoa, I have some stuff I didn't remember those little glass bubble thingies of joy.

 So, let's take care of some business,  shall we??
