Twofer Challenge #39

Yay, it's June! I love the month of June, don't you? What's not to love, right?! It's got the most/longest sunshiny days of the whole year, generally speaking it's not too hot and not too cold, and the fireflies start coming out at night. I'm still delighted to watch them flicker; it's almost like having fairies dancing in your yard. I can remember being a kid, and with school finally out, long days of play with all the other kids in my neighborhood... after we finished our chores, of course. Hide and seek at twilight was fun, and ghost stories with all us kids sitting packed like sardines on the back steps. Flashlight tag, being 'frozen' in whatever position you were caught in, and lots of Red Rover and Starlight, Moonlight. I was lucky enough to live in a neighborhood full of kids, and all parents were friends too. Moms and dads would sit in lawn chairs at whichever house we kids were playing (so often it was ours), and laugh, talk and share cool beers, with the portable radio playing in the garage rounding out the evenings with summer music. To this day, I can almost hear the sounds of us children's laughter, adult chatter, and Charlie Pride singing Louisiana Man from those tinny radios. June reminds me of gentle days of play, and evening spent with friends so it's a good month! While those days of play are past, I have found another way to play in June. Twofer. "Playing" cards is a passion we all enjoy, and making, sending, and sharing cards creates memories that also last. June will bring us 'round to another Twofer Challenge, too! Create some memories this June. Play along with us; we've got a great prompt! Check this out:

I've pulled out my favorite sunny stamp and made a couple of cards. Here they are together:

And here they are individually:

I'm not even sure when Avery Elle came out with this stamp set, Bright Day, but I've loved it since I got my hands on it! That sunburst really trips my trigger! I've used it to make an Easter card and a birthday card. The Easter card uses an MFT circle die cut from a panel. I added some MFT grass, then the sun centered on the card base. A SSS cross and sentiment finish this pretty easy card. The birthday card started off as a slightly smaller than an A2 size. Distress Oxides created the sea, and those fun, funky bony fish are from Simply Graphic. A black panel beneath frames the panel. That's a MB sentiment. One of my younger grandsons thinks this sentiment is hilarious; he laughs every time he sees it. What a nut! 

Be sure to stop by the Twofer blog and see what our lovely Guest Designers and the rest of the Design Team have made. And don't forget to pull out your sunny, sun, sun stamps and play along! Make those memories. Come on's out; let's play!!! And as always...
