A Perfect Day for Crafting

It's soooo hot here in the mid-West that I found myself wishing hell did freeze over... whew! It was 106 degrees at 11:00 a.m. this morning and now at 6:00 p.m. it's 110 degrees...and there's no relief in sight for days. So, I decided to stay inside for as much of the day that I could, do a bit of card-making and jump into a few challenges.
This is a darling image from Mo's Digital Pencil and makes a great masculine card, although it wouldn't necessarily have to be!  Don't you just want to run up and buy all of his lemonade?  Poor guy!

So I'm entering this in these challenges this week....
Allsorts - Free & Easy
CCEE Stampers - summer or winter
Charisma - 4 legged animals
Craft Us Crazy - Anything Goes
Crafty Ann's - Summertime, and the living is easy

Digi Doodles - Anything Goes
Hooked On Craft - Cute & Cuddly
My Time to Craft  - Coffee &/or drinks
Paper Play - garden
Pile It On! - Stay Cool
Sew Many - Anything Goes
Stamp Insanity - favorite color (for me, green)
Stamp Something - Summer Fun

Thanks so much for stopping by... be safe in all you do and stay cool!
