We are having a heat wave.....and a card


After a few days of lovely weather, we are hit with a hot and humid day. This morning it was 36C (96F) but felt like 40C (104F)….and this will continue for the next few days….with, of course, some thunderstorms thrown in as well. This was a very busy day for us; many errands; groceries; my thyroid ultrasound; and then quilt guild meeting...and I have just enough energy left to post this card.



Today’s card was made with the Stampin’ Up stamp set called High Tide……its fairly new and after borrowing from my friend, I ordered it from our local Stampin' Up demonstrator, The Pampered Stamper. I just had to have it because it can be used in so many ways…..but it hasn’t come in yet….but soon! Here’s a thinking of you card I made when I had Jane's set.



The background was done on water colour paper – the birds and grass are part of the stamp set as is the water waves – and many more stamps. The lighthouse, also part of the stamp set, was stamped and cut out and then glued on top. The sentiment, yes, part of the set, was stamped on cardstock and die cut with the Stampin’ Up stitched square die and it was glued on. Twine was wrapped around the card after it was mounted on dark brown; then it was mounted on the piece of designer paper (from the stash) and then onto a dark brown card base.



That’s all for a hot and humid Wednesday, 2017-07-19.

Cheers

Violet
