{WSC86 & Banana Split Challenge} Sunny Smiles!

Color me into one of these beach chairs...ahhhh...Heaven on Earth!


Today's bright and SUNNY card is for a combination of TWO, count 'em, TWO blog challenges!
First of all I came across this awesome inspiration photo above at 2 Red Bananas for the Banana Split Sunday Challenge. Have you heard of it yet? I hadn't. I was browsing through the blogs on my Google Reader and this photo jumped out and called me in. Seriously! :)

And I always love participating in the Weekend Sketch Challenges organized by Beate and kept going by a super team of creative stampers. This week's challenge is hosted by Cambria and she's made a wonderful patriotic card you won't want to miss.
If you have any questions about my card, please don't hesitate to ask. As always, I enjoy your comments so much... they really do make my day!

Have a GREAT weekend and do what makes you SMILE!

Pam, this is fantastic! I love this cute little hula girl and the hibiscus is the PERFECT accent for her and this beachy inspiration! Makes me smile for sure! (I took hula for 4 years while we lived on Oahu, so there are LOTS of great memories there!)
