Beat the Heat...

What heat? It's been raining on and off for almost 3 weeks now, so would not mind just a little sunshine right now.... oh well.

Banners, banners, everywhere banners - a while ago, I showed you some crocheted banners, and Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge 142 includes banners, so yet another excuse to use banners again :o)

Then there is this challenge, that I dismissed at first, since the weather here is anything but warm so did not have the the best inspirational flow: describing how I am beating the heat. When looking for a digital stamp on my computer, I found the bee and ice cone digis from Beccy's place and suddenly an idea emerged for a card and for the 109th challenge from Opus Gluei

For me beating the heat involves icecream or cold drinks like ginger ale or apple cider with icecubes - in other words bee'ing cool :o)

Love the cool cones could have used one of them Yesterday:)That's too bad it's so wet. If I could send you some sun shine I truly would. The HOT heat broke last night, the dewpoint droped as did the temp low 70's so sweet dewpoints in the 50's yes it was sooo so sweet.

What a cute card! I had a little chuckle at the way you put the images together, particularly your use of the bee... very clever. Thanks for sharing the link with me Andaje and I hope that you soon see a little sunshine.
Cheers,
Beccy

Hello! Oh, I'm so glad you came over to play with us at Opus Gluei! I love ice cream too, to beat the heat and in the winter to uh...well, okay, I just LOVE ice cream. I think your use of the sketch is great and I like the idea of the cool images and, as Gini says, you can't have too many banners - they just yell HAPPY to me!

Hope we inspire you to play with us again at Opus Gluei!
