Another Two-fer challenge card

It's too hot outside to do much of anything today, so I decided to just keep doing what I love to do - stay indoors where it's cool and make cards!! I made this one for 2 challenges. First up is the Just For Fun J4F6 challenge over on the Sweet'nSassy connection to use twine. Next I used the colors of black, brown, and ivory for the Stampin'B's challenge #120. I used this super cute SNSS Rhubarb digital image, coloring him with Copics and adding some Flower Soft for his tummy and muzzle. I used some retired SU! DP along with the seeing spots and swiss dots ef's, added some ribbon and twine and made a tag with my Cricut, stamping the sentiment with Rich Cocoa ink. I sponged around the image panel with Antique Linen ink.
I'm still playing in my craft room today and trying to stay cool like the rest of us, so I'll probably turn into a card-making machine for the next day or two! LOL
Thanks for dropping by again!

I just think this fluffy Flower Soft cutie is adorable and so is that little birdie.

I worked until I was exhausted today cleaning my craft room. All is takes is to make one card and it is a mess again. Sometimes, I don't get it straigtened up before I make and another and another.Ugh!

Yes, I think you recognized those shell and crab punches on my card..hmmm, I wonder why. LOL
O.K., just turn into a card-making machine..I'll be looking for your cards!!

Adorable little guy, Carol. Love the sketch. Yesterday was the first time since we got central air that it did not even feel like it was working. Gross! Loosing my garden slowly.

Carol, How precious! I love this card. I have to apologize, I just realized that you had been posting all week and here I thought that 7/25/11(which is not yet here) was your last posting. I also want to say thank you for my award. You are such a sweetie. All of thesecards you did this past week are terrific, as usual. I'll try to keep up from now on.
