Hey there! Happy 'nother day over 100 degrees :). Gosh, I'm a whiner. It's always over a 100 here, so what's my problem. Just feeling snarky at the non-stop sunshiny, no rain, happy, hot, dry weather. I'm kind of craving some gloomy storm clouds and a nice, summer storm. I think a Coke will make me feel better :). A Coke and chocolate, now that's a good idea. Oh, but wait...my chocolate gets all melty in my fingers before it makes it to my mouth, or melts on the way home, or in my purse, or...there I go complaining again.
See these utterly irresistible, to die for, heart shaped sunglasses? I adore them, and they are a die from Sizzix. Yep, it's true. You can die cut tiny sunglasses 'til the cows come home, in all different colors and with sparkles, etc. The die is from Marisa Pawelko and is the Sunglasses die found HERE. I cut mine twice, once from patterned paper, Fresh Cut from Basic Grey, and the second time from Aqua vellum, by Studio Calico. I just inserted the vellum inside the frames and instant cuteness was born!
And, seeing as how I've been chatting about vellum yet again, let's just keep on chatting about it. My next card uses more aqua vellum and another die from Sizzix called the Mini Envelope die.
I just assembled it and dumped in a few sequins, and secured it with a bit of washi and chipboard hearts. So fun. I'll be trying this again and again, I'm sure.
Across the bottom I created a border using the Sizzix Lush Lips die.
The paper, frame, journal card, bow, and chipboard are all from Crate Paper's Oh Darling collection once again. Can't get enough of a good thing, can you?
Well, that's it for me. I'm off to Idaho, lovely, lovey Idaho. My husband has signed us up for a mini-triathlon, The Spudman, bless his heart. I'm supposed to swim a mile down the Snake River. Sound fun? I'm not so sure. If you never see another post from me again, you'll know why.
Enjoy today :).
