We're having a HEAT WAVE...

It is early August and it is Oklahoma so what else would be having???  Better than a blizzard in so many ways...enough said..

Wanted to pop in and post a couple of recent made cards...one for the challenge on:  http://simplyscrapping.ning.com/



On this card we had to use four of the 6 colors..red, blue, pale pink, pale yellow, purple or grey...it was very hard card for me to come up with something that I liked...I'm not really crazy about it...but, then we are our worse critics are we?

and another for my dear friend Jo's aka "Yurt"  birthday which was over the weekend and she has recieved it so I can post it...



She likes turtles and I bought this paper to make a card for her in the future awhile back..I love the bright colors..doesn't it just scream summer???  And who can resist those cute little turtles swimming around on it anyway..the turtle embellishiment was done with my cricket..I did it in several layers to get the effect I wanted...

I have been looking at other blogs, joining crafting groups on facebook..and came across this blog here...


Melissa is giving away a Cricut Cake Machine for her 2 yr blog anniversary...so you should check it out..and even if you don't win it you will be a winner because she is very talented..I just fell in love with her creations..and I will be regular follower of her blog now...

Next week I will be working for 2 weeks..it's good and bad...lol...I would rather be home in my craft room...but it will let me buy a few more goodies...like I need anymore...but...a paper crafter can never have too much paper...And I will also be working with my good friend Rita...sooo..I am looking forward to that part of it!

That's all for today..will be back soon!

Stay cool..and hugs
T
