We're still Hot!

Hi There,

Rushing in with a late minute card for the 'Pun' challenge at CASology. I have wanted to join in this since it came out as I knew I wanted to use this sentiment!
3 hours to the deadline and here we are:

I just love this sentiment from CAS-ual Fridays and ladies I know many of you out there can relate to this!!

I know this looks really simple but the stamps, colours and design were chosen carefully. I wanted to use a stamp that felt like a hot flash-the way it starts from us being so cool-hence the blue enamel dot...then how it builds so quickly so we fill so hot and red! And how intensely this happens and then fades....the smaller blue enamel dots!!

I know if you have them, you can relate to this and if you haven't been there yet...just wait.

(I also know it is not fun and I hope I don't make any of you feel I am making light of this-I have been there and know it is not fun)

This card is still making me smile and giggle.

I made this for a very dear friend who I am meeting tomorrow. She is going through chemo every week and will be for the rest of her life. And she gets flashes like this all the time but we have a habit of laughing at it as it happens. And you know what, we meet to shop and drink coffee and spend the whole time laughing.

We used to work together and have become the closet friends. We really used to think we were hot looking chicks!! Now we are both quite poorly and clearly not too hot looking but we dress like we are still hot and in our minds we are!!

Probably gives everyone else a laugh looking at us!

Signing off with a smile today!

I will enter this into:

Also using it to remind you of our challenge at calling All Sistahs.-Encouragement card-I used the colours and it is going to make my friend smile!
