Seize the Birthday - Sunshine

Hello friends and Happy Thursday.  I haven't been posting as I had foot surgery on May 12th and am recuperating at home.  I have started physical therapy and hopefully next week, will get to loose this big, black boot I have to wear. :)

Anyway, it is time for a new challenge at Seize the Birthday and I was able to gather a few supplies and make my card.  This time we have the option of having sunshine on your card.

For my card I used the SU Kinda Eclectic set for the sunshine and this cute penguin and tree from MFT Penguins in Paradise.   Doesn't he look like he is enjoying the sunshine?  I mounted him and the tree with foam tape.  I tore a piece of MFT Natural CS for the sand and sponged some water  with a couple of different blue inks and the clouds with SU Bashful Blue ink.  The sentiment is from SU Birthday Blossoms.  The green scallop panel is cut with a die from MFT Blueprints 20 and SU Wild Wasabi CS.

Now check out all the fabulous creations by my teammates over at Seize the Birthday.  I hope you will be inspired to play along.

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a wonderful day.
Happy Stamping,


  1. Oh shucks! JoAnn so sorry to hear you needed surgery! I hope you are up and around very soon! : )

    Your card is as cute as it can be! I love your sponged water : )


  2. Beautiful, soft background! I wish I was that sweet penguin laying on the beach soaking up those rays. Hope you feel better soon.

  3. This makes me want to go to the beach, JoAnn! He looks so comfy and the water looks so inviting! Glad you are getting around a little now.

  4. Even penguins need sunshine. Your card is so cute and he looks so relaxed there on that beach catching rays. I sure hope you have a quick recovery soon. :).

  5. Hope you're soon totally recovered, JoAnn! This is an adorable scene & you really got the look of water & sky & sand!

  6. Super cute, JoAnn! Love the adorable penguin and beach scene you created! Very fun!

  7. This card is so fun! That little guy looks so cute soaking up the sun! Fabulous job!

  8. This card is adorable JoAnn, and it is such a cold rainy day here today that I would love to be sunning myself beside that cute little penguin!
