Better than Summer Sunshine...

Hello and Happy Thursday Crafty Peeps!
Are you ready for the Kick off to SUMMER?
This weekend is the official kick off to Summertime
Grilling! Of course it's been hot here for awhile now
and we've been grilling for months! LOL
I've got plans to grill and make some potato salad (YUMMY)
I soooo LOOVE Summertime Salads!! Such easy things
to make during the heat season! :)

With Summer in mind - I created this FUN card using
the Tropical Birds SVG file from KaDoodle Bug Designs

Such sweet colorful birds I think! :)

Here's what I created --

Flamingo's are everywhere right now - so I thought I better
catch up with everyone else who's created something with them!

Here's the Recipe on this card --

Cardstock - Stampin' Up, Bazzill, Bo Bunny, Georgia Pacific
Designer Paper - Doodlebug (Sunkissed)
Flamingo SVG Cut - KaDoodle Bug Designs (Tropical Birds)
Pennant Die - MFT Die-namics (Blueprint #11)
2 (3 x 4 1/4) Stitched Card mat dies - My Creative Time
Sentiment - Simon Says Stamp (Flip Flop Season)
Glittered Enamel Dots - DoodleBug (Sprinkles)
Banner Die - My Craft Spot (No Longer in Business)

I hope everyone has a FABULOUSLY Long Weekend!!!
