Die-Version Sunshine


Good Morning Peeps! Welcome to my stop on the Die-Version Blog Hop at Operation Write Home, and sponsored by Die-Version. You can visit their shop HERE. If you came here from Lisa’s blog you’re in the right place. If not, you’ll want to start back at the beginning by going to Operation Write Home’s blog, “Stars and Stamps”, which is HERE..


I absolutely love this die and I knew I wanted to do something a little different. I kept it rather plain, only adding an orange ribbon. No bow, knot, or anything else. I backed the die with orange card stock and cut the rays out of yellow and orange. The background paper has bits of yellow and orange that coordinate with the sun. I hope you like it.

You’re next stop is the ever talented, and creative, Mary. Here blog, Come Craft w/Me” can be found at the link HERE..

Enjoy you Hop, there are lots of terrific cards and inspiration. Thanks for stopping by, hope you enjoyed your visit!
