Summer, Summer . . .

Did you ever have one of those days when you wanted to stamp, even had time to stamp, but that time came in increments of 4-5 minutes spread out over the whole day??? That was my day. I wanted to make a card that would make me feel cool (it's another hot day here and I'm melting!), but every time I started something one of the children called, or the phone rang, or it was lunchtime, etc., etc. But I did finally finish! ETA: In fact, I couldn't even finish typing this post . . . my son (2 yo) just dumped half a thing of fish food into our tank! Ugh!!! So now I had to spend 20 minutes vacuuming the food and cleaning the tank. Hopefully none of our fish die!

I was trying to "think cool" - not "cool dude" cool, but "aaahhh cool ice cubes" cool. LOL!! What colors do you think of when you think "cool"? I think blues and greens. What about hot colors??? I guess the obvious would be red and orange.

For this card I again used my great Hit the Beach stamp set from My Favorite Things that came in my June box from Paper Pretties. Most of the supplies were included in the June box, but the ribbon and dotted paper came from the Paper Pretties store and were "Suggested Add-ons."

Ok, I'm not going to drag this out any further, it doesn't seem to be my day! :) But I did want to mention that I have some BIG news to share - NO I am not pregnant! LOL!!! It's stamping related and I can't wait to share - soon hopefully!

Thanks for stopping in and all your sweet comments! My life has truly been blessed and enriched since I started this blog - I have so many new friends and all of you are wonderful!!!
