The Light At The End Of The Tunnel

Hi everyone! Here I am once again trying to get excited about going out into this muggy, buggy heat to walk Riley! I am really ready for Fall to make it's appearance.
I will leash her up and go though, because she loves it so much and I can't stand to look into her eyes when I leave for work if I don't take her!

I do have a fun card to share with you today though! I made this as a sample of one of the new Squigglefly releases for the Digi Day Event we had on Card Universe Saturday night. The Friday before I showed the image to the yahoo group get together and we were coming up with funny sentiments to go with it. Did you ever hear the phrase "Just hope the light at the end of the tunnel isn't a train?" Well, that's what I was thinking of when I made my card

(click to enlarge)

This uses the new image called Hang In There and I personally think it's a steal at only 99 cents! I colored it with copic markers and chalked the rocks a little and also used a few colored pencils. The words are all computer generated.

Anyway, here's the inside of my card

LOL! This couldn't help but make someone who feels like they're at the end of their rope laugh if you sent it to them! Stef aka Glitterbabe came up with "What a way to ruin a manacure!" as a sentiment! LOL! What would you have it say?

Okay, I can't put it off any longer. I have to off into the steamy morning because Riley has locusts to find! (she eats them like they're potato chips! eww!)
Thanks for stopping by, and I hope your day is cooler than mine!

I needed that chuckle this morning..gotta go, the indians are restless =)
