FCCB Challenge #256 ~ "Fun In The Sun"

Hello crafty peeps! Did you have a nice weekend? I sure did! My brother & I made a special dinner for my parents because it was their 47th wedding anniversary. 47! I think that's pretty amazing, especially in this day & age. 

Anyway, it's Monday, which means it must be time for another FCCB challenge! All the info is listed below. To enter and/or check out the challenge on the main page, click on the box directly below or the link in the text above. We hope you can join us!

Goofy Gumballs

Hello crafty friends! I hope you are all having a fabulous week! I've been really sick for the past 3 weeks but I'm finally starting to feel better. This is the second time this year I've had this nasty flu virus & it is no joke! Both times it completely knocked me out for several weeks. Ugh!

Anyway, I'm happy to be back in my craft room & I've actually been fairly productive. Today I have 2 cards to share. They're really just 2 variations of the same card but I could keep making these all day! I just love the bright primary colors & I'm having so much fun coloring with my new watercolor brush pens! They work perfectly with these Lawn Fawn stamps....
