Thanks Big Time!!

I made this card for my dad - he helped my husband build our wooden playset in the backyard last month, so we wanted to thank him for giving up 3 weekends to help us out and make 2 little boys super excited!!  :)  It turned out awesome and we are so fortunate to have it for the boys to enjoy for years to come!
I used several Cricut carts on this one, made easy using my Gypsy!  Have I said lately how much I'm loving it these days?  :)  The sun was from Sesame Street Friends, the slide from Locker Talk and the grass from Plantin Schoolbook.  The sentiment stamp is from Stampin' Up 'A Word For You' set, the card base from DCWV, the blue layer also from DCWV 'Baby Boy' stack, and the cardstock was from my stash.  I used my Gelly Roll 'Starburst' pens to add sparkle to the sun and detail the slide.

The inside phrase was cut with Boys Will Be Boys cart using cardstock from my stash.

I'm entering this in the Cricut 360º challenge #4 this week - Create a card or a layout representing "The Great Outdoors". 

Thanks for stopping by!
