It's Getting Hot in Here!

I am so late in getting up a card to share with you! I apologize but have been busy completing some DT assignments that are coming due. Soon I will be able to share those with you. But in the meantime I did make some time to create a card for this week's Clean and Simple Challenge (CAS28) which was to create a masculine card. CAS is already a bit of a challenge for me, but add to that masculine, then I am really being challenged! I do like the end result though... what do you think?

Red Hot Birthday

Some of the inspiration for this card came from a T-shirt that I saw on a person in my hospital recently. It was the alphabet that only had the letters H-O-and T emphasized to spell out HOT! I thought that was a cute idea and knew that this alphabet stamp from Unity's Confession: I {luv} Unity set would be perfect to try it with. First I stamped the alphabet onto white CS with black ink and then I outlined the H,O and T with a red marker and added red stickles too.

Next I stamped and colored the grill from Unity's Retro BBQ set using my Copics. I cut it out and then popped it up and placed it over the stamped alphabet and also the strip of paper I added from Graphic 45. The rest of the sentiment was generated on the computer and printed out.

Pretty simple huh?? Let me know what you think... I'd love to hear your comments!

Have a great night and may your bucket overflow with things to keep you cool in these last HOT days of summer!
