Hot, Hot, Hot!!!

Ick! It's another scorcher today. Thank GOODNESS for A/C!!!!! I know we are spoiled, but I seriously cannot imagine what life was like before air conditioning. The only drawback is not spending much time outside. I really don't like being sweaty and sticky, and I sunburn easily. The baby has been whining when we go out, because he's too uncomfortable in this heat. Does that make me horrible? That I'm keeping my family inside because it is hot!?? Tomorrow is supposed to be only a high of 81, so we're planning on taking the baby to the pool for the first time. I'll try to get some pictures to share.

I just finished a fun birthday card that I'd like to share with you. My inspiration came from the bright floral paper in my stash. I used Bashful Blue to tone down the brightness that I've been having such an issue with lately. I don't mind the bright green and orange when mixed with something softer. I found this tiny grosgrain ribbon at JoAnn's this morning for $1.00 a spool! WOW! I also punched holes in the scalloped circle edges, and added some green bling to the butterfly's body. This is one of my most favorite of my latest creations. What do you think?

I can't believe the baby is still sleeping! I have to go see if the grill still works before he wakes up, so I can grill us up some yummy dinner tonight. That's worth going out in the heat! I still haven't gotten any recommendations for Bad Movie Night from any of you. We will probably not go to the video store until Wednesday, so if anyone has any suggestions for us, I'd sure love to hear them! :-)

Have a great day, and happy stamping!

As usual, your creating is amazing! Don't worry about staying inside away from the heat - living in Florida I do that from June - September. It's just plain miserable out there!
