This week's new challenge for Casual Fridays is all about using TEXT.  As an English teacher, I have to admit it is one of my favourite elements on cards--especially using old book print.

 I made this card with a bunch of butterflies punched out of just that--an old book.  I also stamped old script onto the card base (hard to see well in the photo).

 Here's another one I made using more of the book print TEXT.   I love the stamped image on it.
Wow--one challenge done this week--it's a miracle!!  ;)
I think I need to stay inside my craft room where it's cool--it's 35 degrees C today; feels like 40!!
Hope you're staying cool where ever you are!

Thanks 4 your time!
