A "Sweet" Card for the Heart 2 Heart "Hot" challenge!

On a "hot, hot, hot" summer day there's nothing more refreshing than an ice-cold beverage! Here in the high desert of California, we've had temperatures up to 110 degrees this past week, so "hot" weather is definitely something I know a little something about. On the hottest days, I like to stay cool inside my air-conditioned craft room and get creative while drinking my favorite drink, an ice-cold cherry coke!

So here is my card submission for the Heart to Heart challenge blog this week! We were challenged to create something associated with the word "hot". This little card measures 4.25" tall by 2.75" wide and I used a lot of retired products I had sitting around to use up. Stamp sets I used include You're Sweet B1351 (still available) and the Bowl of Cherries B1348 stamp set that came with the Cherry-O Workshop-on-the-Go kit that was available a while back (summer of 2010). The soda that fills the glass is "Cocoa" B&T paper from the now retired Veranda pack, and the straw was cut from paper from the Zippidee pack (also now retired). The opaque-looking paper that makes up the "glass" is Vellum stamped with White Daisy ink. I hope you enjoy this simple-to-make card and have a "cool" rest of the summer!

Jen, great minds must think alike...I almost made a card that was very similar to this one for the challenge this week! :-) Great job! Thanks for playing along with us at H2H this week!

This is adorable! So clever. It makes me feel a little cooler in the 100* heat of Fresno :)

Mmmm! I love Cherry Coke (but now really like the Cherry Coke Zero), and your card is perfect for the H2H "hot" challenge! I love the vellum glass and the Zippiddee straw. Too cute! Thanks so much for joining us at H2H!
