Heidi's July Calendar & Shopping our Stash

For those who are enjoying my calendar pages made by my sweet friend Heidi, here's July. I just love how snoopy is lying on his back watching the firework being launched...or is it about to land on him?! LOL And those stars on the awning look so cute! I just love this :)

I made this card yesterday and I'm entering it into the SOS #58 triple threat challenge. Click the link for details of the challenge. This was done with white and blushing bride cardstock and dsp. I used the SB layered poinsettia to create the flower and a SB Fancy Tags Two for the sentiment. I added some Kaiser Blush pearls to the flower center and sentiment panel along with a piece of white satin ribbon. The embossed background was done with a "borrowed" CB ef (thanks M A!). I wondered if the poinsettia would make a pretty flower other than just being traditionally red, and I think it works well in this color!
I hope you're staying cool wherever you are today. Thanks for stopping by!

Of course I love that little calendar page - cute to have the rocket pointing down like that!

Carol, this card is stunning!! I never use that color and it's so beautiful on this card. Great way to use the poinsettia die for something other than Christmas. Gorgeous! And.....glad you played along with SOS this week too!

Carol, What two nice "gifts" you gave us today. I laughed for quite a while after seeing Snoopy "maybe" getting hit by that firework. Those stars look like real metal. Another winner from Heidi (Go Girl). Your poinsettia birthday card is such like an elegant piece of art. I LOVE that flower in pink, so classy. Your sentiment die piece with your pink pearls against that embossing is just stunning. You've done it again, my friend. Enjoy your day.
