Hello sweet friends! I hope your week is going well! It's been hot here in NC! Yesterday we hit 94 and our AC decided to quit. Needless to say, we didn't sleep much last night! I am however keeping cool today by working in my craft room in my basement, since it's pretty comfortable down here. My big 16 1/2 pound cat, Ricky, loves to follow me around all day long, so this is how He decided to keep cool today:
Ricky always knows how to be comfortable. As a side note.... this is a fairly wide chair and so when I say he is a lap full, you can see why! He's one of those cats that always wants to be with me... and if he sees me heading for a chair he'll race me to it... and then climbs in my lap. He literally hangs over in all directions! LOL!
Anyway... on to my card for today!
I made this for today's Tantalizing Texture challenge on SCS. I used Our Daily Bread Designs July release, Pennant Swag Alphabet to spell out the letters "Celebrate" and punched them out with my circle punch. I then die cut the Pennant Swag Die from some ODBD Blushing Rose designer paper, and adhered the letters to it. The card base is A2, cut from Baked Brown Sugar cs, and all the designer paper is from the Blushing Rose pack. I used 2 Cuttlebug folders, and one Ecstasy Crafts spring fun pack folder for the rose panel. I cut the printed birthday sentiment from the Blushing Rose pack with the ODBD Custom Vintage Label dies, and then matted that with a label from the Vintage Flourish Pattern Dies. I added some twine and burlap, and a rolled ribbon rose for embellishments. This card folds flat for mailing because the ribbon is so very thin... almost like nylon stockings!
That's it for me today! I hope you are staying cool where you are!
