Raspberry Suite Color challenge 13 and a HSE Sale!

Hi everyone! If you had a chance to read my post yesterday, you may remember that my AC broke night before last. Thankfully, it's slightly cooler today, but it's still in the low 80's in the house. . Ohhhhh, when will tomorrow morning "between 8am and 9am" arrive? LOL!

Now on to Dawn's Raspberry suite 13 color challenge. Her colors this week were Pure Poppy, Spring Rain, White and Berry Sorbet. Well, I just received my little SU order with a couple of the new mini Sizzlits dies! Ohhhh, I'm in love. Just had to use them both today!

The flower was made by using my Blossom nesties dies slightly distressed and adorned with a couple of the silver pearls from Michael's. To glue on the letters, I used my Sakura Quickie Glue pen, worked like a charm!

AND, there is a super sale over at Hope Stamps Eternal! Rach is having a storewide sale of 20% thru Monday. Even the new releases from Inka, Imaginisce and Mark Paper Co are on sale too!!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!

Card Deets:
Paper - Berry Sorbet, white, pure poppy, DP from PTI
Accessories - Swiss Dots EF, silver pearls, Little Leaves and Many Thanks Sizzlits, pure poppy grosgrain

  2. Get a kitchen towel cool and damp/wet and put it inside your shirt around your neck and shoulders!! I do this espec when I am making dinner and its warm in the kitchen!!

    Do you use those sizzlets and the top note die in your cuttlebug? I am super close to getting a bug and I want to make sure I will get lots of use out of it!

    This card is over the top beautiful! inspiring, fresh, clean and lovely!!
