Saturday Sketch Challenge 213

Good Evening Friends!

TGIF! I'm writing this post pretty early in the morning. It is HOT STUFF outside this morning. I went out to take some pictures, and realized how hot is is out there! So I got the hubby out of bed at 6:30 so we could pack up the camper and get outahere!

I'm usually NEVER awake this early... but I fell asleep about 8:30 last night. My daughter was reading her 3rd book to me and I was out like a light. This morning she told me that she turned the light out, but made sure I was sleeping first. Too funny!

We're headed to the white mountains of NH this weekend and I'm hoping it's a little cooler up there!

Are you loving the new doilies from Stampin' Up!? Every year I like to make a pink snowflake card, so I'm getting it out of the way early this year!

Base: 11 x 4 1/4", scored and folded in half at 5 1/2"
Layer 2: 4 1/8" x 5 3/8", basic black
Layer 3: 4 x 5 1/4" pretty in pink, embossed with the snowflake embossing folder.
Layer 4: Flirtatious Specialty Paper 4 x 2
Layer 5: satin ribbon 5/8", whisper white... 5 1/2" strip going across
Layer 6: a doily cut from the flirtatious specialty paper.. you get 16 per sheet and they are double sided (pink or pumpkin with white on the flip side).
Layer 7 and 8: I used the same punch twice. I cut the darker pink in an X shape and mounted the 4 pieces beneath the focal point to form a pink border.

The Merry Christmas and focal point sentiment were both embossed in black.

Not too shabby. A non traditional Christmas card on the hottest day of the year! By the time you're reading this I hope to look like a prune from sitting in the pool all day. :D

Have a wonderful weekend and please stay cool!
