Snowflakes in the Summer

FINALLY! I've been workin on some projects this last couple weeks and finally am able to post a card. Silly me I looked at the wrong MOJO Monday Sketch but oh well, The card is pretty anyway. So the sketch is from last week, hopefully I'll have time to do one for this week.

My card is a 5 X 5, I cut my snowflake at 3" from the Christmas Noel Cartridge. Then I ran it through my Zyron. I used Tim Holtz glimmer mists in red velvet and coffee shop. The picture doesn't do it justice how pretty the colors are and how sparkly! When that was dry I attached the gold pearls using my NEW I-Rock. Then I followed sketch using paper from the Cosmo Cricket Wonderland paper pad. The sentiments on the outside and inside were both from the paper pad as well.

Now I just want to say that I ordered my I-Rock and it didn't work. I contacted the company I bought it from and I'm happy to say that Imaginesce sent me out a replacement right away. The first two times I used it it worked. Then it stopped heating up. Thank goodness I hadn't thrown out the other one because I was able to replace the heat core from the one that wouldn't turn on. So now (at least for the time being) I have a working I-Rock tool. Has anybody else ran across this problem? I'm gonna contact Imaginesce and let them know. I enjoy using it I'm just very disappointed in the workmanship of it.

Ok, enough on that. I'm off to make salsa shortly. Our first ripe tomatoes are ready in the garden which means it back to canning!! I just finished 8 cases of Kosher Dill Pickles and two cases of Sweet Pickle Relish. It's hard work but so rewarding! Thanks for stopping by and leaving me some love!
