Curtain Call Flip Flops: hello, sweet friend.






Post 2 of 2 for today...click HERE for the Verve Stamps Blog Hop!



It's time for a new Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge




The LEAD of this challenge will be invited to be a guest designer in an upcoming challenge!

Such a super fun inspiration photo, don't you think?!  It's been unusually warm here in the Pacific Northwest so we've been enjoying the sunshine.  Personally I'm a happy camper when it's 70 degrees..any warmer and I start to get cranky :)

Truthfully, I've never had Bubble Tea...I'm generally 'sensitive' to bumpy foods...LOL.  Those 'tapioca balls' creep me out.  I've been told (repeatedly by my girl) that I can have them make the Bubble Tea without the 'lumps'....but I assure you, I get enough sweets and caffeine in other forms.  That being said, I couldn't help but pick up the Awesomely Cute stamp set by Evalicious:



I did a ton of watercoloring on this card and used Ranger Archival Black ink.  The panels were cut with

My daughter was just mentioning bubble tea yesterday and we had no clue what was in it - thanks for shedding the light LOL! Darling card :) And yes, this warm weather has been wonderful, but a bit too hot and humid some days.

Adorable card Amy! I too would struggle with the bumpy foods! I haven't tried bubble tea but love me some southern sweet ice tea on a really hot day!
