Wishing You Sunny Days - FCCB #120

Happy Monday Bloggers,

Are you having 'Sunny Days'?  I love 'Sunny Days'!  They are usually very happy days.  The Fantabulous Cricut Challenge DT (FCCB) were challenged to come up with a project depicting "Sunny Days!"

The card I made for today is *NEW* in a lot of ways:
  1. It is a loooonnnnnng card -  it will fit into a Size #10 envelope.  This is the first long card I have made.  Hubby suggested that I use up some of the #10 envelopes with postage that he had purchased.  So I am complying with his suggestion.
  2. I used vellum for the first time in a very loooonnnnnng time.  I usually just use vellum on scrapbook layouts.
  3. I hand cut the 'tag' flying behind Hello Kitty.  I DID NOT use my Cricut for something! 
We all need to try new things every now and again ... Right?  Well here is my offering for today:

Size:  #10 (4" x 9.25")
  • Black mat cut @ 3.875" x 9.125"
  • Cloud mat cut @ 3.75" x 9"
Hello Kitty Plane:  HELLO KITTY, pg 65, HK 16 + Layers cut @ 2.5" also using Silhouette and Black Out features.
Sun:  HELLO KITTY, pg 36, Sun + Clothes cut @ 2"
Sunny Days:  CREATE A CRITTER, pg 52, Sun and Rainbow cut @ 1.5" using Phrase feature
Tag:  Hand cut @ 2.125" x 3.5"
Cardstock:  The Paper Company (White, Black, Red, Lt Blue, Med Blue and Yellow) and Colorbok (Pink and Pale Yellow)
Patterned Paper:  DCWV (The Spring Stack)
Vellum:  Yellow (stash)
Color Medium:  Pentel (Energel pen 1.0mm Black) and JoAnn's (Pineapple and Opal Glitter Glue)
Adhesives:  Scotch (ATG and foam tape), EK Success (Zig 2 Way Glue Pen Fine Tip) and Xyron (Xyron 150 and Xyron 500)

I used my own handwriting on the tag to complete the sentiment.  This was tons of fun to make. has a great technique for assembling the Hello Kitty cuts.  Stop by her blog to check out this cool method.  I used it on Hello Kitty and her plane. 

Don't forget to stop by FCCB and check out all the great project by the FCCB DT!  My fellow designers are very clever and creative.  Be sure to spread a little "Sunshine {Comment} Love" around too!

Well, it is time for me to 'fly' out of here and join Hello Kitty @ the craft table. 

Toodles and Happy Crafting,
