Good morning, Friends!

We are bracing for some serious heat here today.   The forecast is calling for mid to upper 90s.   Since my ”to do” list is pretty hefty, I decided to stamp early while the studio is not baking in the heat.   We STILL have no air conditioning.   After numerous calls to the landlord and the HVAC company, I’m pretty certain that we are going to be without for some time.

Today’s Ways to Use it Challenge is called Going Buggy.   I know it’s probably a cop out to just use a butterfly, but I’ve been wanting to make an white on white card again, for some time now.   The coolness of the lack of color is just what I need :)>

If nothing ever changed, there’d be no butterflies.

I edged bits and pieces of the card in gold embossing to highlight.   I didn’t have any of those pearl flourishes, so I made my own.

    This card about KNOCKED me off my chair! It is FABULOUS!!! And made from a set, that on first glance, appears to be more masculine in nature. INCREDIBLE WORK!!!

  5. […] on it’s face I would classify as a masculine set — WELL, I surely stand corrected! Check out this amazingly gorgeous, feminine beauty made with Poetry of the Earth by Wordsworth. An amazing card, Holly — I LOVE […]
