Why Roast at the Pool? We're Crafting in the Cool!

Hey, Friends With Flair! What's up? I don't know about where y'all live, but it's *hot* here, even for the South. We've been pushing 100 daily for more than a week, and it's crazy humid, too! My parents live in the DFW area, where it's been way hot even longer, but their 100 isn't the same as an East coast 100, and I'll take theirs any day!

So, what better excuse to hide in the house and stamp?

My project actually was a FAIL! (as my eleven-year old would say.)  I was putting a card together for color splash challenge at The Play Date Cafe. When I went to drop it onto Mr. Linky, I wondered, "Why did everyone else choose blue?" Then I read the directions more carefully. Duh.

I am crazy about my set of Unity buterflies! They're very detailed and versatile - some are frillier than others and - since I'm on that shoestring - useful in so many situations! With their size, they're also great for scrapbook pages!

The backgrounder is from CHF. The 'fly is inked in  Adirondack Watermelon. CS is Bazzill. I did re-do it in blue, which is a couple of posts down. This one turned out better, though.

Thank you so much for stopping by today! I love to learn from your comments, and I'll look forward to visiting your place, too!

Have a wonderful weekend!
Elizabeth

  5. I love your card!!!! That's so funny about the challenge- at least you caught it, once I entered a stamped card into a "using no stamped image" challenge, boy did I feel silly!! If you're scrappin on a shoestring, you should check out my Scrapbook Steals giveaway on my blog- today is the last day to sign up! And I am having another RAK tomorrow! Enjoy your weekend!

  7. Gorgeous card! I love how you stamped the flutterby in watermelon so it would pop against the black background.

  8. Elizabeth, this is still a gorgeous card with the splash of red! Love the b/g stamping too! I know I wouldn't enjoy all the humidity, but sometimes here in Phoenix the 113 degree weather still keeps us hiding indoors too! Keep cool!
