I just love this little guy, he sure is enjoying himself.  He makes for a nice relaxing summer card.  I thought this die would work great with the sunflowers so at the very end before attaching it t my card I decided to color the flowers around the edges with my maker and stickles for the center :)

Stampabilities -- Hammock Hibernation stamp colored w/markers
Spellbinders -- Decorative Labels eight die
BasicGrey -- Lilykate paper
Stickles -- Cinnamon (border flower centers)

Update on Evelyn -- Her incision is healing well, her bowel movements are all working well. She is up to 5ml an hour on the milk and doctor says if she keeps doing ok with increasing they will keep increasing her intake.  They took her off her nutrition IV for 4 hours yesterday, this was quite encouraging to them because they didn't except that to happen so soon.  Thanks again for all your prayers for this sweet little one.

Oh, I am praying for Evelyn, and glad to hear of the progress she's made...my brother had a very sick baby who had to be operated on, a long time ago, it is so harrowing.
My nephew - the 'baby'- is now a very healthy 6'4, happily.

I love the card and the lacey edges, high cuteness factor as well!
Have a good week!

I think it is wonderful how you made the lacy edges look just like Sunflowers. You are very imaginative! I have never done paper-crafting. You are very talented. All your cards are very nice.

Ha! This will be me in two weeks! Such a CUTE image and it goes perfectly with the die. Brilliant idea to color the flower parts of the die cut. It looks fantastic! I love this die, too. So pretty!
