Hello!! Happy Tuesday!
How are you all doing? We had a beautiful HOT & Sunny weekend. Today will be even hotter...in the 90's! I have been resisting ...but I just turned on my central A/C. I hate turning it on so early in the season, but we will be miserable later today/tonight...out house soaks up the sun all day and just holds the heat in...even when it cools down significantly outside. Tomorrow it will be back down to the mid 60's...so I will turn off the A/C tonight.

I didn't get a chance to post yesterday...and the posts may not be as frequent as usual this week....we'll see what I can do. I have a lot going on this week. Stuff I should have done already. *sigh* The story of my life is me trying to catch up. I am bummed that I didn't get to use MJ's sketch for this week! But please go check it out and participate.

This card does use this week's Mojo Monday sketch. This is also my first time using a stamp from The Greeting Farm. Cute images! I pop dotted the fairy but not her wings. So I stamped her twice. for the top image I took my time to color it nicely, then cut it out--less the wings. For the bottom image I only concentrated in the wings. I did color the areas that might peek through, just in case. But I just added some color...I didn't shade or anything. I am including a pic of what I am talking about...and a close up pic of it put together. I used the clear glitter pen on her pink bodice and her wings....but it doesn't really show up in the pics.

Ok...I've got to end it here...because Maeve is having a long drawn out temper tantrum, 2 yr old style. It is making it difficult to do anything.

Have a Pleasurable Tuesday!

This is beautiful! I love the inside too!

Our house gets hotter than most as we have 2 large skylights in rooms next to each other. So it can be 76 outside and it's 86 inside! I'm slowly getting sorry I got skylights!

Stay cool my friend!

Hugs,

Hi Kerry! It is so good to hear from you! And thanks for the comment! It made my day. ;) I finally got my stuff from High Hopes. I love their stuff, but it is VERY frustrating to order. They are supposed to be sending me some free stuff, so we will see. ;o) I hope your day totally rocks!! Keep in touch!
Hugs!
