CR84FN #57 ~ You Make Me Smile!

Good golly Miss Molly is it HOT or what!?! We've had power outages, cable and internet issues. Thankfully the power doesn't stay off too long so the house doesn't get unbearable. I hope things are well with all of you and this heat lets up soon. My prayers continue for the folks in Colorado...scary, scary stuff there. But you came here for a card right! So lets get onto the crafty subject shall we!

Bright pink is not one of my go to colors, but I do like a good challenge so I dove into this one head first! This week at CR84FN they have given us bright pink, tan and neutral. I went all out with full coverage on the bright pink here with a sheet of lacy DP from Crate Paper. Then I toned it down a bit with some frilly layers. I am head over heels in LOVE with this precious little strawberry paper! Oooo how it does make me smile. Is this not the sweetest little morsel of yumminess! I might have to hoard my last sheet! I die cut this with my PTI: mat stack 5 die then added it to my card with a doily sponged in creamy brown ink to bring it to a soft shade of tan. Next I die cut a PTI: picket fence and stamped it with my tiny strawberry by Judith. I colored them with markers and added a touch of glitter then added it to the card with foam tape. This is my last little snippet of kraft lace from Hobby Lobby. Hmmm do I see a trip there in my future!?! A couple of Martha Stewart punched butterflies and October Afternoon buttons for more pink and one of my favorite Inkadinkado sentiments.  

 

 Stay cool sweet bloggy friends! ~Lisa

Oh yeah, it's hot as a pistol--just like your card! Those are some yummy papers you have assembled, and I love the tiny strawberries trickling over the fence! I hope your weather is not as hot as ours--108 yesterday and 106 today. Stay cool my friend!
