Chill Out!

Hi everyone! It's back to the grindstone today, but it's a short week because Wednesday is July 4th! It's so dry and hot here though that there probably won't be any fireworks.

Today is the last challenge of Holley's Hobbiest's as we know them at Squigglefly. Next week the new term of the design begins. We are really happy to say that most of the team is staying on and we have added some new team members! We are sorry to see Terri Fleming and Shawna Sealander leave us, but we understand that summer's are busy for these two ladies.

Anyway, be sure to go see the new challenge and please try to join in and play with us!  You can win even bigger this week if you play along because since there were no winners the last two challenges Squigglefly is adding those digis to this week's prize meaning you could win THREE digis if your card is chosen!  You must use a Squigglefly image to be eligible for the prize, but there are a lot of fun freebies to use!

The card I'm sharing with you today was made for a challenge at the Outlawz Party where we were supposed to show what summer is like in your part of the world. The Shy Bear Heave Wave Bear couldn't show any better what it's like here in central Arkansas!


I used copic markers and chalk to color.  I added a little bit of crystal lacquer to the spilled water.  The sentiment was computer generated.   This poor little guy has planted flowers and set up a nice chair and table on his deck hoping to enjoy the great outdoors, but the relentless sun and heat has wilted his flowers and his spirit!     I hope you are staying cool!

This is oh, so cute! I love the colors and the DP. That upper DP looks like shimmering heat waves.

It is supposed to get into the 70's here on the 5th!

Sending COLD hugs!
