Sunrises and Sunsets!

This morning, I woke up and looked outside my kitchen window. I got a big surprise - the sky knew it was the Fourth of July!

And every day must come to an end so I did a card showing the sunset somewhere cold - the opposite of what it is here in Alabama! This week there were a lot of challenges with the Sun so I am participating in several of them with this fun little Sassy Cheryl image called Jump, Snowman, Jump (available at Squigglefly).

  12. Wow, your card stopped me in my tracks this morning, Nancy! What gorgeous compilation of the embossing, the roundness of the image to show the idea of the sun and that dramatic color! Came together as a beautiful Christmas in July card! You might like to visit the Christmas in July challenge at

  13. Love everything about this! So cute! Sorry I've been MIA, but you've been busy and have created some great projects. Especially like the watermelon carriage and the nuts and bolts card. I was just down in your neck of the wood and it was HOT!
