Fun in the Sun Card Trio

Hello out there in doodlebug world!!! It's Courtney Lee from Court's Crafts here with a trio of cards made with the brand spanking new Fun in the Sun collection!!! 


I made this card for a friend who just came on a trip to Europe with us. She helped and braved being on international flights with three small children (mine: aged 3, 2, and 6 months. Yes, I am crazy.) I wanted to make her a card to say thank you and that it was really fun!!! I once again used Mendi's 4 quadrant cut file to create this card! :) 

The new odds and ends are AWESOME and the shape sprinkles and cute clips?!? I cannot get enough of these!!! I had to get ate least one of each on this card! 

This card had a LOT of dimension.

Whew, with having a new little one, my husband and I have some work to do and I just wanted to remind him that while we are getting through some stressful times that I am more in love with him now than ever. So, I decided to make this little "stuck on  you" note card. 

It was SO hard for me to use these cactus shape sprinkles. I love them. Like, I just want to frame them. haha. But what better way to use some of my favorite product than on my favorite human?! :) Aren't. they. darling!?!? And the sentiment came off of the 6x6 paper pad. easy peasy.


These cute clips... I'm telling ya... ahh! So daring. So I stuck one of those up there and since it was "hollow" it's kind of my cactus representation of God watching over us. Too deep for a cactus card? Maybe. But I love it. :) 

Recipe:
doodlebug: fun in the sun: 6x6 paper pad (5297) (the sentiment came from here too!)

This last card I made for my father-in-law's birthday! He has some great stories from the 70's and has a retro vibe to him. I know he'll love this card!

This caravan doodle-pop. SOOOO cute and the headlights are sprinkles and they just add SO much. I love the new phrases on the "this and that". They are perfect for card makers! Not having to leave "stamping space" is SO convenient! 

I grabbed these banner pieces from the odd's and ends and used some doodle twine to thread through. And did you spy that little flamingo shaped sprinkle in the bottom right hand corner? They are so shiny and darling!
