I hope today is a blast!!!

Good Morning!! I sure do hope everyone is having a great week and staying cool! *whew* it has been very hot and humid!!! It is supposed to rain and cool off tomorrow (though we are getting rain now). I will be soooo glad....I just do not care for the humidity! Yuck and double Yuck!! LOL

I was hoping to work on some scrapbook pages last night....but my honey had other ideas! LOL I did get a chance to make a couple of cards for the technique lovers challenge over on splitcoast. I was surprised how easy these are to make!! I actually made two! I will post the other at the end of this post. This one is a little plain but it was my first one!! I think it is perfect for a childs birthday! I just LOVE the color comb in East Coast Prep!

Here is the second card I made using this technique! Nothing new, but I just can't help myself with this set! LOL It is favorite :-) Okay, when I loaded the picture it went to the top! Sorry about that, I can't seem to move it. Oh well, I do hope you like them!!! Have a great day and stay COOL!!! :-)
