Ohhh, blistering heights...it's so hot outside! How hot is it you ask?
It's so hot...Today I saw two trees fighting over a dog!
It's so hot...you could fry an egg on a ice cube!
It's so hot...I saw Optimus Prime transform into an air conditioner!
It's so hot...people are baking cookies on their dashboards!
It's so hot...birds are using potholders to pull worms out of the ground!
But never fear, I've peeked into the forecast and it's supposed to be in the chilly 80's next week!!!
Until then, I just have to live vicariously through cool thoughts and that very thing helped me create this card for our current linky party at
Santa Baby Chillaxing
This handsome bathing suit Santa is from our sponsor
The background sky and water have been painted with acrylics and highlighted with Derwent watercolor pencils and gesso touched for white caps on the waves.
The beach ball and jet ski are stamps from ArtStamp Heaven.com
A little close-up of the jolly fellow himself who is laying on the sandpaper sand.
Hope you've enjoyed the card and we would love for you to submit your talent and creativity with us for another wonderful week of sharing at
Before you go, I'll leave you with the my
PICK OF THE WEEK!
(I swear I'm going to have a nervous breakdown one of these days just trying to pick ONE!)
But here it is...
At this point, my brain has pretty much turned to mush from the overload of gorgeousness. I'm not sure any words I have would be fitting enough to describe how pretty I think this is!
These are only a few of the display pictures. To see more, click here.
Well that about wraps it up for me.
I hope you all have a great week coming up and can spare some time to link up with us at
