enjoy.




Happy Sunday!  It's warming up again in the Pacific Northwest.  I was hoping the milder 70 degree temps were here to stay but it's forecasted to be in the 90's again today.  Although we don't have central air in our home we did score a couple portable upright ac units after our last heat wave so at least the upstairs {that's where I craft} doesn't get so unbearably hot.

Here's a clean & simple card:

cardstock:  recollections/110/white, ranger watercolor, stampin' up gumball green  stamps:  create a smile/magic flowers  ink:  ranger archival black, kuretake gansai tambi  other:  create a smile stacked pierced banners/magic frame cool cuts, create a smile enjoy chippie

I inked up Create a Smile's Magic Flowers set.  (Did you know that Butterfly Reflections Ink is a US source for selected Create a Smile products?!)  Isn't that bloom gorgeous?  I colored it with Kuretake Gansai Tambi {that's what the card is on in the photo}.


The Cool Cuts products are so much fun:



I colored the 'enjoy' chippie with a black sharpie:


Did you know that Create a Smile recently turned one?!  I've been a fan from the start and couldn't be more happier for Christine!!!!



I'm playing along with their birthday challenge!  There's still time to join in the fun, if you don't have any of Create a Smile's stamps {yet}, she has digi freebies on the Create a Smile Blog!

  13. Whew! Anything over 70 degrees would have me melting. Last week it got up into the 90s for a couple of days, so I'm glad to see the temps settling down here. Your design is so pretty (and it pairs yellow and green - Packers colors woohoo!)
