2. Teach paper craft classes.
3. Create Dies for Spellbinders(done)
4. Learn everyday what it takes to be patient, understanding, tolerant and giving.

Friends tied up in a bow!

Jimini Crickets!  It's really ... really Hot!  My friend Beth spent yesterday at the pool trying to cool off but I couldn't get out to the pool!  It's way to hot to walk or drive anywhere today!  Just me and my air conditioner!  It's supposed to break by next week... but by then, none of us will have any money left to run the air conditioner for the remainder of the summer!  hehe  Hello friends and family, it's Friday and the Captain America movie is out today and the theater is air conditioned!


I placed my NB label on the back of the Bazzill, traced 3/4 then positioned the die again lower and finished the pattern, cut it out and used it as the face of my card.  I don't own any of the larger dies so I improvised!  Try it, it's simple!  Cutting out the DP gets a little tricky too but I enjoyed the look of the base paper over hanging the card topper!  It added just the dimension I was looking for!  Isn't this cutie pie with her teddy adorable?  I just love Friday's, I enjoy the WNW images so much!

I'm hosting a Wags 'n Whiskers challenge today!  
The theme is Buttons and Bows.  
Make anything for us but be sure to include your favorite buttons and some of those terrific bows!  

The random winner will receive a Wags 'n Whiskers Rubber stamp of your choice.
