Smile

Happy Sunday of a long weekend!  Yesterday was nice here most of the day.  We had a few showers in the afternoon.  Today and tomorrow is going to be hot (high 80's).  I have a wedding to go to today.  I hope the AC is working at the reception. 

Today is the Stempeltraume weekly challenge.  The theme this week is swirls.  I decided to use this stamp by Karen's Doodles.  I thought that the vine fit the theme well.  I then used my swirls from Spellbinders.  You should join us.  Swirls is an easy theme!

The other wonderful challenges this fits are:

Karen's Doodles - Stitching - I stitched around the pieces of DP

Just us Girls - Dry Embossing - Remember the days before the embossing folders?  I love embossing and still have alot of stencils.  I embossed the purple CS.

One Stop - Swirls and Pearls - I love both and have my spellbinders swirls and the pearls all over the place

Sweet Stampin - Pimp your card -Lots of embellishments and bling - I have pearls everywhere on this card and lots of glitter.

Polka Doodles - Sew Sew - I faux stitched around both pieces of DP

Truly Scrumptious - Sketch.  I really liked this sketch when I saw it and thought if I turned it on it's side it would work with this.

Quixotic - Emboss it! I embossed the purple paper using my cuttlebug dot folder

Totally Gorjuss - Wings - I cut out and glittered the wings on the butterfly and did the same for the bee

One Stitch at a Time - Something New.  My new is the DP.  I went to a convention a couple of weeks ago and bought this Melissa Francis paper.  It is beautiful.


Thank you for visiting me.  Thanks to everyone who leaves comments.  They make my day and I love reading them.
