Sunny Days Ahead

I was so excited to open my mailbox today and find that my Simon Says Stamp Kit of the Month had arrived (along with some other goodies that I had ordered)! After supper, the boys did all the clean up so I could hide out in my craft room and test everything out. This is the first Kit of the Month that I've ordered and it was so fun using a number of new and coordinating supplies to create.

The green cardstock, patterned papers, sentiment, speech bubble, sun and kite are all from the Kit of the Month. The stamps didn't come with dies so I created shadows for the images using my Silhouette. I coloured the sun but paper pieced the kite. I used my stitched rectangle dies for the mat and frame and used my Lawn Fawn Hillside Borders for the grassy hill. I used a tiny punch that I've had in my stash since my early crafting days to make the flowers and coloured some little pearls for the middles.
