Sunflower for a Friend
It was a hot 104 degrees here in my area of Alabama yesterday and I don't think I've ever heard more thunder or seen more lightning than we had about 3:00-4:00 a.m. this morning. It was non-stop and seem to last forever. I've had little sleep. Another hot day today with a heat index of 110-115 degrees but the temps are not as high. But, I still love summer. :-)
Wow! I have a very bright card today. Hope you like orange. Lois is our hostess this week for the Stampin' B's Design Team challenge #122 and she asked that we make a square birthday card with piercing. I lined up my Spellbinders circle, scallop nestabilitie and pierced around the grooved edges to pierce around my flower. I stamped three times and cut out two layers that I popped up. Colored with Copics and added Dazzling Diamonds to the center. I am using a French Scroll punch around the page.
Hope you'll join us this week. If so, just add your card to the inlinkz tool .
Speedy the Cat's blog challenge #66 at Mark's Finest Papers is to use twine, baker's twine, jute, yarn, anything other than ribbon. I am using Cappuccino baker's twine.
