Let It Snow......Anything is better than FIRES and 100 degrees!!!
Edited to add:
I am linking up my card to this week's Unity - Friends with Flair since I did not get another Unity card made. We have a big wildfire near us and have been helping other families evacuate. The fire is still about 3/4 mile away from us, but we are getting ready to evac in case we need to. We appreciate your thoughts and prayers!
The prediction this week is for 101 degrees on Wednesday. Can I hear a collective groan????? (Ughhhh....) Thank you. Do I have A/C???? No. Does my house have good ventilation so it cools off at night? Marginal. So.....can you blame me for making Christmas cards lately????? lol....
When I saw this Mojo Monday sketch, I first thought about birthday, but then I decided the star reminded me of Christmas so that's the direction I went.
I stamped a cute little Unity grab bag greeting on a scrap of cardstock and heat embossed with clear powder. This might end up being my Friends with Flair card for Friday since it is possible I will be away some this week. I thought it was brilliant of me actually to plan ahead that many days! (Five days... Ha!)
My focal panel is a double-embossed background that I made last winter and had leftover in my stash. It is dry-embossed with my Darice - Snowflakes folder and then covered with Versamark and various embossing powders in deep purple and with glitter. Then I brayered more Versamark over the raised portions and heat embossed with silver powder to make the snowflakes more visible. This has a non-stop sparkle that I wish photographed better.
My shiny ornaments are die-cut using my Spellbinders - Holiday Tags with a couple of colors from my DCWV Stack - Foiled. My background papers are from the Echo Park - Winter Wishes collection.
Other supplies used include:
Versafine Ink - Onyx Black
Silver photo corners
Hope this card helps you feel cooler if you are in the middle of the summer sweltering heat. I think it cooled me down a degree or two. Thanks for stopping by.
