Blast From The Past Blog Hop - "Sending You Sunshine"

Welcome to my blog!  Once again this month I am thrilled to be participating in Taylored Expressions Blast From The Past Blog Hop.  This time around the theme is "Sending You Sunshine." 

Nothing gives a little bit of sunshine than a crisp, clear summer's day and my card using an image from the Cuppie Love Scenes stamp set captures that setting.
