Some Like It Hot

Happy Friday! Wow, this week has gone by SO quickly! My youngest son is having a friend over to stay the night tonight and since the temperature is supposed to be 100 degrees I bet we'll have the water slide out too. Ahhh...summer!

So...I have a friend (I know...can you believe it? LOL!) who is heading to Hawaii on Sunday Alohaso I just had to make her a card and a little something for her trip. For the card I used the Some Like It Hot set from SU! which is now retired but so perfect for this occasion. You can barely see it but I sprayed the white layer with Shimmerz Spritz in Baby's Breath. It just adds a wonderful shimmer to the card that you can really pretty! Then, I added Shimmerz Blingz in Pixie Dust to the flowers on the flip flops and umbrella. Finally, I used Shimmerz in Sunny all over the sun. In real life this card is very fun and shimmery! The layout is from SCS's clean and simple challenge for this week. Love that challenge!

And, I wanted to make her a little something Hawaiian for the trip so I used some Imaginence paper, a chipboard letter, and the SU! Top Note Die to make it for her. The yellow on the "j" is covered with the opposite side of the flowered paper. I punched a hole with my Crop A Dile. A little So Saffron Twill will make the loop to hold it onto her bag. It probably won't last very long if she puts it on her checked bag but it will be cute for a little while, right? Hula

So, there is my bright and fun post for ya today! Please don't forget my Inspiration Challenge. You can see what that is all about HERE. It is a wonderful chance to win some Kaisercraft Rhinestones!

Have a super Friday everyone!

Hi Lorie,

Could you share your "recipe" with us or email me privately? If just the card stock & ink that you used that would be great! I don't know how to access the SCS gallery for the weekly challenges.

Stampin' Smiles from Ear to Ear,
