You Are My Sunshine...

...my only sunshine. You make me happy.....

Yeah, you get the picture. This week's Jbelle challenge is a fond farewell to summer. That could mean summer images like bugs, flowers or beach stamps. Or maybe hot summer colors like orange, yellow or red. Or maybe your shine comes from Shimmerz or Stickles. Once you've made your summer card, leave a comment on the Jacksonbelle Embellishments blog so we can all check it out.

I LOVE summer and wish it could last all year long. I won't hold my breath though, not here in the northeast. Here's my sunshine card. It's five inches square. I used some Lizzie Anne stamps from the August Monthly Mix, aptly titled Hey Sunshine, along with these bright, happy June Bug papers. It doesn't get much hotter than that. The matching ribbon is from May Arts and the flowers, from Prima. The flowers are dotted with Stickles (on sale all week).
Jacksonbelle Embellishments has been getting in some fun new stuff recently, the latest and greatest of which, in my opinion, is JENNI BOWLIN! Woot! Go check it out. Just don't buy it all before I get a chance to pick some out. LOL.
