Then, I wanted to make a card to cheer her up. A smiling summer sun came to mind. I used My Cut Search to search through the carts to find a good one. (This site seems faster than using the Gypsy search, and I like that you can see the whole handbook page rather than just the keypad overlay.) I used the sun from Smiley Cards. His sunglasses are from EDPD. The tags on the top of the card and the base of the pedestal are form Tags, Bags, Boxes and More. The turquoise background was run through the D'Vine Swirls Cuttlebug folder and the white square was run through Spots and Dots. I also used an Action Wobble for the first time. I had signed up months ago for a free sample on Momo's blog and was saving them for the perfect occasion. I thought it would add some extra cheer to this card.
This card will be entered in the following challenges:
Whimsical Wednesdays--Fun with color challenge #11--I used the required red and yellow and also pulled the colors turquoise and white from the provided photo.
Baking up Crafts--project involving baking and crafts
Fantabulous Cricut Challenge #65--summer sun

After posting this, I got an e-mail from the Joyful Stamper suggesting I link up my project to her Inspire Me Friday, so that perhaps I can inspire others to do something similar for someone in need.
