Excessive heat warning

Today is only Tuesday, but we have a weather advisory for excessive heat until Friday at 10pm - whew!  I can't believe this for Wisconsin.  It is like we have moved to the South.  I worry about people who work outside or do not have air conditioning since this is such a long stretch.  I work tonight and I told my son I am already concerned about it since it will be a full moon...since the patients tend to have strange behaviors during the night.  He laughs at me, but.....now sprinkle a little heat and who knows what I'll see tonight.

For my first card thinking of the ocean, TLC, Create has a great image along with these shell buttons that were in the August club.  I thought it worked perfectly with the Saturday Sketch by using the twine with the Martha Stewart anchor punch.  Then Mo's Challenge this week is "Straight from the Heart", I used "Angel with Kitten" as my image.  Our cats are so spoiled and loved so I thought this was a great image to use, and the sentiment is from TLC, Create.
