Dog Days of Summer

Phew!!  It sure is hot in Georgia.  Nothing new during the summer months.  I got a reprieve on my vacation to Alaska and Seattle two weeks ago.  What lovely weather we had!

The color challenge at The Outlawz is a "Hot" one!  Guylou selected our inspiration image and colors this week, and you need to check us out!  ADFD is sponsoring our challenge this month, and a randomly drawn crafter will win some of their images by playing in our challenges.  I chose one of Tammy's beautiful ballerina's for my card this week. 

I made my flower by cutting five circles out of wide organza ribbon, and ran a match flame around the edges to "melt" them which gives them a curly, fluffy look.  The circles are small to large size and there are five.  After stacking the cirles up, I stuck a big jewelled brad through the center.  Voila!  It is much easier to "melt" the edges with one of those fireplace lighters, but mine was dead.  Had to use quite a few long matches and watch my fingers!!  The lighter blue paper came embossed and I used a nestibility for the oval.  A computer font was used, some polka dot paper, Copics, I chalked the edges of the polka dot paper.
Hope you will come over and join us this week!

Also, check out "Through the Craft Room Door" magazine this month.  A lot of fun going on in there!  You also have time to play at "Guylou's Inimitability" this week!  FAB digis to be won!

Have a great week!
