A Card!

It has been so hot here lately. I love it! But it just makes me want to lounge and nap all day so the mojo hasn't really been there. My work desk faces out my window and I get so distracted by the kids playing outside and, call me weird, but I really love the smell of water on a hot day! I'm talking about water from a hose that's watering plants and some of it hits the pavement. Love it!
I did manage to get a card done. I'm thinking of entering it into the Paper Crafts Card Idol competition. I've got a couple more I'm working on to enter to but it's all still a thought.

I do have to say.. that this paper made my desire to go somewhere tropical much more apparent. Hello hibiscus flowers!!!!

{Patterned Paper} the delicious Great Escape line by Making Memories!
{Flowers} Bo Bunny
{Brad} American Crafts
{Best Wishes Stamp} Inkadinkado (whoever thought of that name is brilliant!)
{Kraft paper} Bazzill
{Scallop Punch} Fiskars Threading Water

And I'm not that great at stitching so I'm taking it baby steps here. Tried a fancy stitch on the sewing machine and realized you can't really do the super fancy stitches. All those little holes so close together end up tearing. I ended up having to trim off part of that lovely pink paper due to the stitching coming out. I'll just stick with the other types of stitching I suppose as I continue to become more brave!
