Raise your hand if you're hot!!! I know so many have HOT temps right now. Actually, even with 97 degrees, we're not suffering like last year. We had 14 days with the exception of one when we were in the 100's. The hottest temps were two days straight of 107 degrees. The humidity was unbearable. This has been a mild summer with a lot of temps in the 80's. It has heated up, though, in the last couple of weeks.
My sister knows I love birds and sent me this adorable embossing folder. It is from Craft Concepts and is called Love Birds. Don't you hate when your ribbon is lumpy because of the embossing? I should have put a strip of cardstock under it and punched borders. I've had the Prima nest for a while. It is named Cradle Robin. My paper is PTI white cardstock and the ribbon is Offray/Amethyst.
My ribbon is quite a bit darker than my inspiration photo (shown below)but purple just the same.
Here is the photo for Inspired by Stamping's inspiration challenge. Actually, there are three but I've done the other two already. It is a two week contest.
I'm using a stamp from Inspired by Stamping and entering their challenge IBSIC #58 and my card will also go into the Inspired by Stamping Customer Gallery. I love the large stamps in this set/Big Wishes II and the beautiful font.
My card is also entered into Addicted to Stamps and More-CAS challenge--#54
Another fun challenge I'm entering: Oozak-#18--Anything Goes with Texture
