Sending Smiles

Hi Friends! I hope your having a wonderful week! It's so hot here in Northern California. I can't seem to handle the heat when the temp goes from the 80's to 106!! It will e a long week of over 100. Usually this kind of heat doesn't come until the end of June. I think were in for a long hot summer!

 
For my card today I inked up the background with Papertrey text background stamp. The paper is from Becky Higgins Inspire collection the tag is from Winnie and Walter/ Audrey Cutaways. The roses are also W&W In Bloom: Lola's Bouquet , the sentiment is from The Big, The Bold Friends I tool a fine tip marker and squiggled some black lines around the tag and patterned paper. Splatted some ink and tied a twine bow.
 
Thank you for all the wonderful support for my Winnie and Walter Leading lady debut! Your awesome!!
 
Hugs, Char

Such a wonderful Card and I love the touch of the scribbles! I always thought I needed a sewing Machine. So Crafty! Which I still don't have yet and I can now postpone a little longer:)

What a pretty card Char!! This is layered beautifully and your squiggle lines add so much. We're up to the high 80's the rest of this week. I don't think I could handle 106, holy cow!!!

Your card is so, so sweet, Char! I love all the elements of the design!! Please say you were teasing about a long hot summer; I can't bear it as I am getting older. I had a migraine today and think it was because it was so bloody hot yesterday and today it's been a little cooler, but humid. The Mister is threatening to move us to the beach! He'll have to pull me kicking and screaming from the Playhouse! (It won't happen; we can't afford it, lol!) Hugs, Darnell

Very pretty card with wonderful layering! Great addition with the squiggle lines! Wow...hot temps out your way...that's way too hot! I'm just hoping the pollen count goes down here. The allergies have been awful for me this year! Take care and have a great week!:-)

Such a sweet card. Love the free hand scribbles. And I believe we get a bit of a reprieve by the weekend so hopefully it won't be too hot of a summer.

The layering that you do and the colors that you pick for your designs is always a perfection :) love this beauty!

Awfully pretty roses on this one! Love the boldness of the background text with the ultra feminine rose motif. Love all the layers. A very vintage, yet quite modern look to this lovely card. Good luck with the heat...your area is hotter than ours so far. Didn't know No. Cal ever got that hot. Stay cool. TFS & Hugs

Char, your "collage" like card is stunning! So many lovely details - your floral background, the yellow stripes, the peek of script, the sweet tag and, of course, the flower cluster - to gaze at and admire. Truly, a work of art! WOW!
