Let's Chill Out!

I have a blog candy going on right now.  If you are interested in seeing the giveaway and entering to win it, please see this post.

Hi everyone!  It's still hot and dry as ever here and let me tell you, when you work for a heating and air company and the temperatures are over 100 degrees the phones just do not stop!  That's why I thought the Greeting Card challenge at the Outlawz this week which  is to show how you like to chill out in the summer heat was such a great one to participate in!   This little Beach Babe image by Fawn Palmer has the right idea on how to chill out!  She's sure ready for anything that comes up with her fun horsie inner tube and her goggles!  




The sentiment is computer generated, but this image comes with four wonderful sentiments - that's a great value!  since my card does have a sentiment on it I'm entering it in the Squigglefly challenge this week which is to have a saying on your card.   Easy peasy challenge, so go play along!

I used Copic markers to color and chalked the sky in the background.  I added some crystal lacquer to her goggles and some glittery clouds that are die cut from some glittery felt.  I have Squigglefly DT member Tammy Hair to thank for enabling me on the cloud die purchase!  If I've enabled you and you want them too, they are Memory Box dies from Ellen Hutson and can be seen here!

Thank you to all the new followers in the last few days!   I've decided that I will add something to the blog candy when I reach 490, and then add even more if I reach 500 so tell your friends!  Have a great day!
