*Simple Sundays*

Hello, sweet friends! 
Our weekend just flew by and in the blink of an eye,
here it is late Sunday eve!
We've been having wonderful family bonding time
and enjoying the splendors of the outdoors,
my favorite place to be ♥
Although the weather here is simply beautiful,
we know in a short few weeks it will be scorching hot
 so while that tropical breeze surrounds us with all it's splendor,
we take full advantage! :)
I have a card to share today for my Simple Sundays,
heading to a friend of mine who is battling cancer.
My card ended up being a little busier and brighter
than I had intended, but I just kept layering and layer
the different dsp scraps I had one hand {and burlap} to see which ones I wanted to use and ended up using all of them :)
I added buttons and twine to finish it up,
along with some ric-rac.
This is one of those 'made with lots of love' cards ♥
Big hugs, Bigger Blessings!

I'll enter my card into:  WordArtWednesday - Anything Goes
Hiding in my craft room - Super Scraps
Chocolatecoffeecards - Stripes
