Is it hot enough for you yet? Whew! It is for me, and I never left the house yesterday, cowering inside in the air conditioning! I thought this image was perfect for making a card in this sizzling summer weather.
This is Deedee Anderson's pre-colored digi image called "Dog Days of Summer." This little guy is doing a lot of what I do lately which is to sit right in front of a fan! I just have to smile every time I see this pooch cooling himself off! I thought the little popsicle brad would be a perfect accent for this card. The papers are all from SU! and I embossed the lower portion with a Tim Holtz Sizzix bubble wrap ef. I hand-cut the sun from the digi set, and punched an orange center for it just to add some extra color. The sentiment was printed right along with the image, but there are several to choose from in this cute set. It even includes matching designer paper you can print yourself! What a bargain for the price!
On another note, Deedee's July digi challenge is in full swing, and if you play along, you'll receive the August digi of the month absolutely free! It's a progressive challenge which means you play along and link a card each month, and the following month you receive the digi for free! If you miss a month, you can still get the digi at a reduced price while the challenge runs, or you can get it free with a $10 purchase from Deedee's Digis. You can find all the details here on Deedee's Digis blog.
Wishing you all a cool summer day and lots of icy cold popsicles too! Thanks for stopping by!
