Lazy Summer Daze
Here in Michigan we are definitely having a real summer this year. Almost every day since June it has been hot and humid! Staying in tune with the weather, I made a Criss Cross card that features Tilda with her bicycle and a bouquet of flowers.
I remember when I was a kid, my girlfriends and I would ride our bikes everywhere in the surrounding neighborhood area. We didn't have cell phones at that time and as kids had to stay in the neighborhood. My kids have bicycles but would rather stay
in the house and play with the Wii or PS! I almost have to force them outside to get some fresh air and exercise. In my day, it was torture to have to stay indoors during the summer, what is wrong with kids today?! *lol*
So today's card is all about summer and summer related fun! Have a great day and enjoy the summer sunshine!
stamp Magnolia (Tilda with Bike), c/s Bazzill and PTI, DP ..Karen Foster (Birds & Blooms), inks Copic Markers Embellishment....machine stitching,Swiss Dots embossing folder, Prima Roses , Stickles, half pearls and ribbon. Instructions for the Criss Cross card were found at SPS. I used the base instructions for my card but increased the size for my needs.

I also want to mention that if anyone received a weird email from me, please disregard and delete it. It looks as if someone hijacked my email address and sent out suspicious emails to people on my contact list. I have since reported the abuse and changed my email password. I'm crossing my fingers and hoping that all is OK now. Thanks so much!
