Sunshine Card

Embossed Suns Card
You know you are wanting to make a card pretty bad when your air conditioning is not working in your craft room! My craft room is upstairs and evidently our central unit for the upstairs is on the "blink" today because it is hot! I've called the repairman and hopefully it will get fixed soon. I don't like crafting or trying to sleep when it is this hot. :) I wanted to make a card for three different challenge sites but my brain kept telling me to go downstairs where it was cool. :) It also kept telling me to take some stamps, etc. downstairs but then the "lazy voice" said you can take the heat. :) So I took the heat and this is what I came up with. The challenge at City Crafter is called "Let Your Light Shine" this week (need to have some form of light such as a sun, etc.). Well, how perfect to have three embossed suns on a card when I am burning up in my craft room! :) The sun is an embossing folder by Sizzix. Then Papertake Weekly has a challenge of using just one of something. I used one long strip of ribbon by American Crafts.
Tuesday Throwdown has a ribbon with a twist challenge too. You are to use ribbon in a creative way. I folded and stapled my ribbon....not sure how creative that is but you have to remember how "hot" my brain was when making this card (Wink.) :) The sentiment stamps on this one are by The {Stamps} Of Life. I also used a border punch by EK Success. So there you have a "hot" card made by a "hot" crafter in a "hot" studio. :) Thanks for stopping by. Hopefully I will be a lot cooler tomorrow since the repairman is coming this afternoon.

LOL Bev. I feel your dilemna. I'm not a heat person, but it's hard to keep me from crafting! How fitting that you made a such a sunny card! I'm glad the repairman arrived and all is well.
