LOTV Challenge 57

Oh my giddy aunt, it's hot hot hot!  Hope you guys are keeping cool and refreshed.  It was 35C (that's 95F in old money) in my craft room this morning so I've had to wait for the sun to go round for it to drop to an only-just-bearable 30C so's I could dash out, craft, dash in. 

Even Vince, normally a heat seeking missle, is flumped out on the floor in my bedroom.  Poor little love, he really doesn't know what to do with himself.  This year he has decided that maybe the fan in the living room isn't a big bad monster and he will share the room with it, but not too close you understand, just in case it turns nasty on him.

Anyhoo, I digress (what's new I hear you cry) - over at LILI OF THE VALLEY challenge this week is a fab Dawny P sketch  -
For my card I have used one of the recently released Busy Bears "Busy Baking" and she's coloured with Copics.  Papers are Basic Grey and DCWV Bright Stack.  Woodware daisy punches with corners and pearls from stash.  Sentiment is also LOTV.





















Thanks for dropping by.  Hugs, Squirrel xx

Gorgeous card Squirrel, love this image!

I know the feeling with the heat, it's energy and mind sapping.

At his age Bozzy isn't doing too bad in this heat and our fan is definitely his friend! He really loves lying in front of it when it's in the bedroom. When he's on his blanket in the lounge, we make sure that it reaches him whilst occilating.

This is really lovely Squirrel. I can't resist these bears they are so cute lol!

We aren't much bothered up here in Aberdeenshire with heat this week! It has been nice recently but not so hot that people are struggling. Today - drizzly, wet and now misty! Hope it goes back to being nice again soon!

Gorgeous card! 95! That's a mite toasty for comfy crafting. Poor Vince, I know how he feels, those floor fans are cunning beasties, they can turn on you at any moment and nip you right in the tail! Speaking of which you should be careful as well! Hope it cools down to a more manageable temp for you soon!
