Girl on a Fence

Hi everyone! It has been 41C today... I am in meltdown!!! I rushed around this morning still trying to find a dress to wear to future DIL's Hen's night tonight. I had no luck in the shops, the new season clothes are already in swing and there is very limited summer stock. I tried another place on the way home and then thought I would call into the Op shop and look at the second hand clothes. Yep, I found two dresses, but nearly melted trying them on in the non air-conditioned shop. I came home and washed them and drip dried them, LOL, with the heat it didn't take long. Our eldest daughter came over about 2 p.m. and then the youngest one and we spent until about 5.30 trying out ways to put our hair up. The oldest one is into watching You Tube videos on hair styling and so that's what we did and they turned out okay. She did mine and her sisters and then we ran out of time to do hers, so she just straightened hers and left it down. We had a good time out, having part of the bar to our selves - they had a few games and a meal together and then around 10 p.m we walked down to another place and had a drink. We left them there around 11 p.m. and then waited to get picked up. Probably got home around about 11.30ish - said goodbye to our daughters and our DIL (she got dropped off at our place about 6.20 p.m. and came with us into town) and then rushed around trying to get a card done.
So here it is,
The basecard is one of the SU Blues and then matted with a slightly darker blue. I cut a large scallop with a nestie die in SU Real Red card and then a piece of embossed metallic paper and then these cute images which again were from a swap. I don't know the name of the stamps. I coloured them in with watercolour paints. I stamped the sentiment in SU Basic Black ink onto white card and then mounted it onto a piece of the blue and popped it up on foam dots. I also decorated the inside with a piece of white card and stamped the sentiment from SU Curly Cute onto white card, mounted onto the blue and adhered straight onto the white piece.
