Stell has her fix!

Well it's Friday and I think we all survived the hottest day of the year yesterday, and I bet there were many records broken with these high temperatures. Yesterday around 2:30 it was 120F with the humidex - unbelievable!  So thankful for a/c, but I hate to see my next hydro bill - yikes - but in the long run so worth having.  I don't have mine set very coolish- it's usually around 77 F.

On with today's card.  It was a sketch challenge this week, circle or a square, although I love circles I decided to do the square version.  For my image I chose
Stella has her fix!  After colouring up a Stella last week, I was still in the mood to colour up some more.
I stamped her on bella's bestest paper and coloured her up using prismacolour pencils.  Cut her out using the circle s/binder die as well as the next layer.  The purple layer was cut using the lacey circle die.  I sponged some versamagic spring pansy around the image.  Wasn't sure which sentiment to use with this Stella image, but when I came across this one, I thought perfect - it's exactly what I like to do - take time out and enjoy and nice cup of coffee!
I stamped the sentiment using black versafine, used pop dots to adhere to my card then add the flower on the end.
Finishing touches: bella dots, glitter and a brad.

Hop over to bloggabella to see what the rest of the babes and sistahs have posted for this week. 

For next week our challenge is 'Christmas in July'.  Great way to get a jump start on your Christmas cards.  Hope you have a chance to play along, if so, email Emily your card by thursday night.

Enjoy your weekend, and thanks for coming by.

Love it Pauline! You've followed the sketch to a tee and I must say most of us like to use circles, just in square cards. Your colors all look so great here.
