Let's Chill!

Hola Y'all!

How are you?  The horrendous heat in my town has begun and so have my headaches, so I could NOT function yesterday.  Just to give you an idea of what the weather is like:  109 degrees yesterday and 100 right now (and it's still morning!).  I know many look forward to summer, but not me.  How is the weather in your neck of the woods?

I think today's simple card is appropriate for this weather, so let's begin.

I drew ice cubes with a glitter pen.  Love the sparkle.
I colored the drinks with distress inks.  I stamped the ink onto a piece of acetate, sprayed it with water and then painted using a paint brush.

(Supplies: cardstock; stamps- Hero Arts; sequins; ink- Archival black & Memento in Gray Flannel; glitter pen; water; Tim Holtz distress inks- Peacock Feathers & Mustard Seed; colored pencils; small paint brush)

That does it for me today, dear friends.  I am going to try and stay chilled today. ;)  Thank you soooooooo much for stopping by.  :D

Happy Crafting,

P.S.  Just want to remind you about the current challenge (Father's Day) at Scrapping 4 Fun Challenges.  Link up your project by Thursday 12th of June 2014, @ 23:55pm European Time. Come join the fun. :D


  1. This is so awesome!! I'd love one of those drinks right now with the sparkly ice cubes!! Ugh, I can't imagine that much heat already. It's been in the 70's here with rain...I'll take the wet over the heat any day. I hope it cools down and your headaches go away. Have a great evening :)
