Easy To Wish

Good morning everyone! Well I shouldn't have complained about having to walk in the heat yesterday because later when I got to work I got to see just how hot it can be. Our air conditioner was broken! Walking in the morning when it's 80 degrees with 90% humidity is hot, but sitting in an office with one fan blowing down a hall and it's 93 degrees outside is hotter; especially when you're there for hours!
The good news is that they were putting in a brand new unit when I left for the day.

So, yesterday I was wishing for Fall which brings me to today's card

(click to enlarge)

I used the new Squigglefly image Make A Wish, which again is only 99 cents! I really think this is a sweet image. I colored it with copic markers and added a little bit of stickles to the dandelion. I stamped a dandelion head from a Papertrey Ink set in white craft ink on the back ground and stuck a few pearls in the corner.

I used a corner punch that notched the corners of the image panel, and then ran a silver thread around it. The words are computer generated and the font is that CK Becky that I love so much.

Well, I slept a little later than I intended this morning so I need to get going if I'm going to have time to walk this morning! Have a wonderful day, and thanks for looking!
