HOT DAYS OF SUMMER

Our company came for the weekend and we had a great time. Then DH went to Hawaii and took my camera. It was only a short trip. While he was gone the AC broke upstairs (where my craft room happens to be) and there was no crafting - way to hot upthere. Well the AC is fixed and I have my camera so it is time to post.




I was out shopping with my mom one day and we were in the $1 store. As I walked around, I started looking for the unusual to use on a card. I came across the swizzle sticks and just had to give it a try. So I did the "stir it up" for a birthday card.


I love bird stamps. They are cute and always make me smile. The Hey card is from a small set from Hero Arts and the Little Birdie is a $1 stamp. I used scraps for each card. It seems that my scrap stash keeps growing - I love to buy paper and it is so hard not to use what you have that is new. The flower and buttons just add that special touch. Hope you all stay cool.
