Butterfly Dreams



Wow, are we ever having some freaky hot weather this week! They're calling for a high of 104 degrees on Friday....yeee-ikes! I took Kara to Build a Bear Workshop this afternoon...figured it'd be best to just stay in the air conditioning.



I had time to do a little crafting today too...yay! I think the heat is what made me pull these warm, sunny colors. I die cut the butterflies three times, and popped two up on foam tape.

Hubby is grilling burgers on the grill and they're about done so I'm off to eat. Have a great night....and stay cool!

What a cute card! Love the colours and the butterfly image. Darling touch with the twine bows.

We have had rain, rain and more rain for about 7 months now but I think I'd rather that than your high temps!

I love the sunny warm colors and the dimension! Holy heat wave! Today was warm but the evening was breezy and quite nice...but tomorrow the heat wave is supposed to get us too! Crafting in the a/c sounds good to me!

It's very hot here in Wisconsin. I'm thrilled to go to work each day since I don't have air conditioning in my home.

Cute, cute card. Love how you tied the ribbon. That is so creative!

Beautiful and sweet, Denise. What a wonderful card. Wish that you could send some of the heat up to Seattle. We have had the coldest summer that I can remember and rain rain and more rain. We might hit 65 degrees today, but it drops into the 40's at night!! brrrrrrrrr

Whew - so hot where you are! It's 40 deg F where I am and raining, raining..... What I would give to be basking in the sun's warmth right now instead of surrounded by racks of wet undies and socks hugging the heater....sigh...even my cat is complaining! Still: the next best thing is basking in the warmth of your gorgeous card - LOVE the colours and love the dimension on the butterfly. Reminds me of a tropical fruit punch drink in a tall glass filled with crushed ice and one of those fabby little umbrellas.

Keep cool :-)
