Hot Weather - Cool Card!

Boy, it is hot here in Hartford this week. Yes, even at 4:30 in the morning it is still hot. This is a really early post, but by the time you read it I am probably on my way to work my event today. It is a golf event that starts with breakfast prior to the early tee times.

It's going to be a long, hot day.  All I will be thinking about is the pool- or in my case, a cool shower at the hotel.

So here is to all you wonderful bloggers and readers that are lucky enough to have a pool.

I saw an idea where someone had used a cloud stamp to make waves. So here is my attempt.
I will be back tomorrow with a card if I have the energy to do it after work tonight.

I will be linking this up to My Craft Spot's Monday Challenge - Inking it up and
Die Cuttin Divas Summer Fun challenge.

Here is how I did it...
Basic A2 card base
Cloud Stamp used for with dark blue ink to stamp waves.
Seal/layers cut at 3.75" from Birthday Bash
Circles cut to size using CM cutting system
Sentiment is my own printed on my computer
Ribbon from my stash

Oh, that is just too clever. I love it. Try to stay cool (yeah, right) and just think of your nice cool hotel room at the end of the day.
Take care,
