Pretty in Pink ... and Black

Good HOT day to you, my friends!  It's the third day in a row that we will hit the 90 degree mark.  My garden is suffering terribly.  The sprinklers ran this morning and I'll run them again at the end of the day - but honestly it doesn't do much good.  My poor sweet flowers ...

Here's a post that will hopefully perk everyone up.  I love this greeting ... "My Dear, Kind and Wonderful Friend".  Doesn't that say it all?  It comes with our All Holidays stamp set.  Pink and Black is always chic and perfect for this card.  I'm also lovin' the Newsprint Designer Series Paper!  The Basic Black Striped ribbon is a favorite of mine and you'll see it frequently.  The best news is that we now carry this gorgeous stripe in more colors ... Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie, Pretty in Pink, Real Red, Rich Razzleberry, Night of Navy, Marina Mist, Certainly Celery, Old Olive, Early Espresso, and Basic Black.

(Click on the picture ... you can see it sooo much better!)

My Butterfly Punch added my winged friend.  I punched her out of a pink print and again out of acrylic with black polka dots then layered the two with a Glue Dot.  The black button with ribbon floss is attached with a Dimensional.  So cute - don't you agree?

I want to point you towards these terrific challenge blogs this week ... thanks for the inspiration ladies!
