Hi there!

Phew, it's hot here!  We've been experiencing 44oc with the humidex these last few days - thank goodness for air conditioning!

This month I am showcasing the Papercard kit from PaperWorksCo!  And trust me when I say that this kit is HOT! HOT! HOT!  It is full of scrummy goodness with papers from Cosmo Cricket's Garden Variety, matching cardstocks and embellishments.  So I decided to go with a hot chilli pepper theme and make a hostess gift with a recipe card for homemade salsa.  I went with another criss-cross card (these are so fun and easy to make) and made a matching sleeve for the jar of salsa mix.  Everything is from the Papercard kit.  I used my MS zigzag punch on the recipe card and sleeve.   I think this makes the perfect hostess gift for those last minute invites to the pool.  And I can honestly say this was put together in less than 20 mins!

Thanks for your visit today - I love that you're able to come by and leave me a comment!  And be sure to check out PWCO - Peggy still has the amazing 40% sale off!

Stay cool!

that is fast, to do all that in 20 mins and it still looks great. I love that you have gone for a 'hot' theme - it is very original and not one of the 'usual' card themes!
