Hi everyone I hope ur day was better than mine.. We had temps in the 100's and our "air conditioning unit decided that it had to much of the heat too and went out on us."ugggggggg!!!  it was too much to bear, we plugged in a few fan but all that gave us was "hot air" All I can say is that I hope that we can get it fixed with out too much expense for us because we just don't have any extra in our budget for that at this moment.

I colored several images last night and as much as I tried to get some cards done today I just could not do much of any thing.. and even now at this time of night we have our front door open trying to cool down. I did manage to finish two cards and this is my first.. This Sweet little girl is a freebie from Michelle Perkett for members of her group over at CDAC..  This is my first image that I have colored and made into a card for Michele Perkett. I have done several back to school card but hey I guess you can always do some more,
What I really wanted to show was my flower. I watched a couple of videos showing how to make "grunge flowers and roses with the "Tim Holtz" 6 petal die cut.. Well some talented ladies showed how they made the same flowers with their cricut machine. I was so excited to try and so I did. I had to practiced on a couple of different styles and for the most part they came out pretty good. I will post the pictures of my first one a little later.
