I've been having a lot of fun with crochet these days. I found this wonderful Copper Mist crochet thread that matches this background paper wonderfully. I've crocheted on a Spellbinder's Eyelet Circle. I'm hoping the flowers are zinnias which always bloom here in July and August which are Central Illinois Dog Days (Stamping Scrapping Challenge Central "Dog Days of Summer" challenge). Temperatures are often in the 90s here with high humidity. Pots must be watered twice a day or kept in the shade. Air is often hard to walk through, it feels thick and moist. And since my background paper has flowers and I have two flowers on my card so it qualifies for the Magnolia Stamp Lovers Flowers Challenge. So, you have a choice - flowers or 'dog days'. Note: in order to qualify for the SSCC challenge prize, you must mention a product that can be purchased at StampingScrapping.com.
