Catch A Wave

The weather here in Northern Kentucky has been hot, hot and hotter!!!  Our grass is brown, but we've had so little rain it would be impossible to water it enough to keep it green.  I've managed to keep our flower beds alive.  And even though I pretty much hate the winter cold, I've had enough of the heat for now thank you!  Whatever happened to Spring & Fall?  I wish we could swap some of our sunshine for the constant rain that is happening in the UK!!  I made the card below using the Tropical Santa Surfing image from Bugaboo Stamps.  Looks like he knows how to cool off!

Christmas in July Bugaboo Tuesday Challenge

Today's Bugaboo challenge was to use this freebie Santa in the Sand image to create a card with a tropical theme or color.  Here is my interpretation of the image. Again..coloring isn't the greatest..but I'm still in there trying..and it's fun!!!

Christmas in July Bugaboo Monday Challenge

The challenge rules this time were to use a non-Christmas image for your card..and I immediately thought of grumpy Stella!!  I'm not thrilled about my coloring on this entry or the next..but that's okay...just trying to keep up with the whole week's activities on this challenge blog are enough to keep me creating!!  Hope you like it!!

Christmas in July at Bugaboo

I just spent a half hour trying to post this card in the Christmas in July Bugaboo Challenge...and lost the whole post entry while trying to insert my card in the challenge...SO GOES LIFE!!!  My whole post was about my crazy busy weekend, so I'm thinking the fact that I lost my story of the post is probably a blessing for all of you!!!  Hope you enjoy!!

Tuesday, July 10

Well ..it's only going to be in the 80's this week versus the 105 degree weather we had this past week!!  Woohoo!!!  I know there are many more states out there that are suffering the same fate, so I really can't complain.  My younger daughter Elaine is in her eighth month of pregnancy, and is truly miserable in this heat!!  I made this card for her baby shower mostly because of the funny sentiment!  The image is a Bugaboo Digi Stamp ...JJ Pregnancy-Hospital. I cut the pink paper she is mounted on with Spellbinders Nestabilities Long Classic Scalloped Rectangles Large.  The green grossgrain ribbon is from Michaels and the teeny pink buttons are from Walmart. Of course by now you have guessed..she is having a girl..and the pink and green colors in the card are the colors of her nursery!!  Hope you like my card!!
