It's Hot

Boy it is hot here in NC. But according to the weather report, it has been hot most places this week. The wind is stirring a little now, so I hope a little storm will blown in and cool us down a little bit. It is time to post Pat's Saturday Night Challenge again. She had us do something this week, that I haven't done before. Make sure and go visit her blog to see her card. It is a keeper for sure. The challenge was to make a mini card. Hers was 3.5 x 3.5 so that is what I made mine too. I am going to make and envelope to fit it too, but don't have time right now. As you can tell in the pictures it isn't a folded card. The base is a piece of off white card stock , then a piece of Bo-Bunny Press "Shabby Princess" collection for the next layer. I used my Cricut to cut out a little nestie shape in the same base colored cardstock. I folded it about the fourth of the way down and slipped the top under the bottom of the 2nd layer. I used a marker to faux stitch around the outer edge. The little flower on top was cut out of a coordinating piece of the Bo-Bunny, "Shabby Princess" collection, then pieced on with 3 D dots. When you lift the piece that has the flower on it, up you can see where I stamped a sentiment using a MSE stamp. I used some coordinating ribbon to finish it off. Thanks for visiting.
