How Hot Is It??

Hello My Friends.

This is Ottawa.
This is summer.
And it is HOT!  

I know we should expect that.  After all, it is like this every year.  But the humidity is something we tend to forget about from one summer to the next.  Until it creeps back into our lives - like it has this past week.

So I thought you might enjoy this card we made at our Team Meeting on Sunday night.  I saw one like it on Pinterest and knew it would be easy to re-create using Stampin' Up! colours.  The sentiment (from the Bunch of Blossoms stamp set) is pretty much perfect for this card, if I do say so myself!

Top to bottom:  Tangerine Tango
Calypso Coral
Peekaboo Peach
So Saffron
Sun - Daffodil Delight sponged with Peekaboo Peach
Pacific Point
Marina Mist
Pool Party
Island Indigo
Crumb Cake (embossed with the Softly Falling embossing folder - debossed side showing - and sponged with Crumb Cake ink)
Sentiment - Bunch of Blossoms stamp set - Memento Black ink 

Naturally I had to include some clear Wink of Stella along the edges of each of the blue-toned cardstocks to indicate the shimmer of the cool and inviting water in the hot summer sun!

You can order any (or all) of these supplies from me.  Just click on the product images at the bottom, or the "Order Online" button at the side...or just contact me and I will be happy to help you out!

Hope you all manage to stay cool.
