Red Hat for a Lady

     All of my favorite color combos include purple and something, and when the card celebrates the Red Hat Society, that becomes purple and red.  This fun vintage/shabby chic hat comes from a set by Deedee's Digis called "If the Hat Fits."   The set has a total of five hats (both black & white outline images and pre-colored), four sentiments, and the price is only $3 !

     This is a pre-colored image which I die cut with a die from QuicKutz and the octagonal mat is cut with a Spellbinders' die.   The lace came from my stash and it's been waiting ever so long to be used.   The sentiment was printed in two parts, hand cut and then matted with CS.  I did a double bow in white and purple with a pearl for embellishment.

     It's the beginning of a new week, my friends, and the last day of June is tomorrow.  July will start on Wednesday and the 4th of July holiday will make this upcoming weekend something to celebrate.  I  hope you're going to find some crafting time in the middle of all that.  :-D  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie
