Feelin' Hot, hot hot!

The past two days' weather has been a lot hotter than mother nature has given us recently. Today is going to be in the high 70's as well. This warm weather is making me rather lazy. It's making the little Peanut fussier than normal, too so we've spent a lot of our time in the downstairs part of the house, far away from my crafts. I've only been able to work on one project between yesterday and today. I was browsing blogs looking for challenges. I saw a lot of Christmas in July challenges, so I went for that. I also combined it with a few other challenges.

I just used some basic cardstock for the base. I embossed the light pink cardstock using a Fiskars template and glued it on top of my DCWV cardstock from the Premium Stack. I cut a small piece of bright pink cardstock and used a Fiskars border punch around it. I used K and Co letters for the writing and Jolee's sticker for the embellishment. I made the flower using some scrap paper, tied a ribbon through a button and glued it all together.

This card is going to be entered into a few challenges:

Now for my "throwback" project! I made this after watching the movie Easy A.

Hopefully I can gather up more energy to do something besides browse digi stamps today! I really want to start adding those to my projects. I still need to make a thank you card for my aunt!

Catch you later!!
