7 Kids College Fund ~ Hot or Cold … Choose Your Extreme!



Phew – my 2nd post for today!    We’ve got a new challenge for you over at the 7 Kids College Fund Challenge blog, along with a new Design Team!      For our challenge, we’re taking our cue from the popular Hot ‘n Cold song by Katy Perry . . .

“You’re hot then you’re cold
You’re yes then you’re no
You’re in and you’re out
You’re up and you’re down”

***  HOT or COLD  …  Choose Your Extreme! ***

Since I live in Wisconsin and am definitely tired of COLD, I HAD to go with HOT!    I thought this cutie from the Greeting Farm, Cheeky Glamour, was a great image to depict HOT!    🙂



I’ve used a MS edge and corner heart punch for the border and a small heart punch from the $1 section at Target for the small red and pink hearts.

I do think I had a little too much fun with this one!   I’ve had some white craft boa feathery material for ages – not quite sure why!   So, I added glue to her boa and cut small pieces of the craft boa … all I can say is  DO NOT try this in the middle of your crafting area – you’ll end up with feathers EVERYWHERE!    LOL    I also added some polar white flower soft and star dust Stickles to fill it in a bit.    Her fish net stockings were drawn in with a Copic multiliner.

The sentiment is computer generated and the lip prints were found on the on the internet – it’s amazing what you can find! 



I hope you will join us for this fun challenge!    We’ve got a great prize too ~  A $20.00 Gift Certificate from 7 Kids College Fund towards your choice of any of the new Belles ‘n Whistles rubber stamps, now up for preorder at 7KCF!
