It's hot

Yesterday it was 93 here in WI with the humidity and the heat index it was like 96 so it was HOT!  Because I work night shift, I sleep during the day, but it was still hot and humid when I went to work for 11 pm.  Today it is still suppose to hit 89 and I hear my neighbor working outside so I hope they hydrate.  My cats like to go out in our screened porch in the morning, but I haven't let them out and they are upset with me.  They are spoiled kitties so they will have to suffer inside today.

For my first card, I used the iced tea saying that I just love from TLC, Create along with the paper.  I used Crystal Effect on the glass and the ice cubes.  My second card I did some paper piecing using the digital image "Adele" from All that Scraps and the inside of the card has a sentiment from TLC, Create.  My final card is this weeks Mojo sketch using the color scheme from the Colour Q.

Hi Lisa you've been so busy and made some beautiful cards. I wish we had your warm weather here in New Zealand, we are in the middle of winter and today is the shortest day so that only means it's going to get warmer and days get longer. I love what you've done with your oval to get your image all in cut at an angle. Love your papers and your wonderful flower embellishments. Great card and have a wonderful week and thanks so much for sharing your card with us at Sweet Sketch Wednesday and good luck.

We are having a heat wave in VA as well and I hate being cooped up in the A/C but glad we have it. Our cats also love being able to sit in an open window and are not so happy at the moment.
Love all of your cards, the sentiments are so perfect on each of these. Thanks for sharing at Sweet Sketch Wednesday.
