I cannot believe the temperatures so many of you are feeling this summer! My heart goes out to you! I know that when our A/C has gone out during the heat of the summer, it has been horrible! When we lived in Las Vegas, there were those times that we borded the pets and got a hotel room so we could sleep at night in the cool air conditioned room. Hang in there. Just a little tidbit of historical info - when the early settlers to Las Vegas wanted to stay cooler at night, they would wet their bed sheets and sleep outside! If the upper sheet dried during the night, they rewet it again so that they could stay cool - ER.
I've been working on a couple of cards. I'd like to share one with you today. It's in honor of those of you who are hot or on a diet! Go figure. The two are NOT connected at all! LOL
Here is Miss Tilda staying to keep cool while NOT watching her waistline! It's weird. The actual colors in my original photo are much more intense. When I uploaded them to post here, they got all washed out. I'll never understand. *sigh* I colored the image w/ distress inks, added some little ribbon bows to Tilda's pig tails, and added some pretty flowers and glittered accents. The rhinestone heart is a pale blue set in silver. Tilda is elevated on pop dots. I added additional glitter around the edge of the paper on which Tilda was painted. I also used a MS border punch behind the scene.
Here is the inside of the card:
The top half features a punched circular border as well as a horizontal punched border. I cut the banner from glittered cardstock in a pink that matches the borders and the ice cream dish. The bottomhalf repeates the punched borders and also adds some fuchsia branches tucked under a leafed rose and bow.
I really enjoyed creating this card. It all came together so well. Some cards just flow so easily while others seem to create bumps in the road to completion!
Thank you so much for stopping by. I hope that you will come back again. If you would like to leave a comment, please do, do, do! I so love that you cared enough to leave a little love. Each one is so uplifting, appreciated, and what keeps me moving forward. I so appreciate you for visiting and leaving them.
Have a wonderful weekend!
