Challenge Me Monday #120

Hello everyone!  It's time for another wonderful challenge here at FCCB!  I actually have two cards to share with you today.  This first one I did for the DT post at FCCB.  This week we want to see your projects with a sun on them.  Here in the midwest we have had no shortage of sun.  Temperatures have been in the triple digits for weeks now.  I am really beginning to look forward to fall.  

The base of my card was cut at 5"x6.5".  The mat I used came from Elegant Edges, sand from Everyday Paper Dolls, and the rest came from Sesame Street Seasons.  I inked the sand to make it look more realistic with Tea Dye Distress Ink.  You can't really tell from the picture but I added glossy accents to the sunglasses.

Pin It

The next card I have to share with you is one that I wish I didn't have to make.  My son is in a very active boy scout troop.  One of the leader's whose son was in Afghanistan lost him on Wednesday from wounds caused by an IED explosion.  I personally did not know their son.  However, when news of my husband's deployment spread Randy talked to me about him.  He then gave me his wife's card and told me that if I ever wanted to have lunch or talk with someone who was going through the same thing to give her a call.  My heart breaks for their family as they are living every military families' worst nightmare.  Please keep the Wyatt family in your thoughts, I can't imagine what they are going through.

Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to stop by the FCCB blog to check out the other DT projects!  I promise you won't be disappointed!
