Coffee of the Day - Pumpkin Spice
It is hot here. poo on that. I was really enjoying the break of summer heat we were having for a bit... hopefully cooler temps are just around the corner.... time to put the juice in the freezer for slushy drinks! ahhhhh, so refreshing on a hot, humid day! what do you do to stay cool in the summer heat?
The showcase team over at Milk Coffee has some fun Beach/Water/Travel inspired projects to share with you today. lots of fun cards to see on the blog!
I was given the image, 'Charlotte in Paper Airplane' to use for my card. I paired her with papers from the Authentique Pride collection, and pretty Prima flower, some May Arts burlap ribbon, and clouds cut from corrugated cardboard with a MFT die. the sentiment is from Create with TLC. I tried to color her fairly close to the actual US Air Force uniform as I could. her aviator goggles, as well as those of her chicky friend, are covered in crystal effects. a spica clear glitter gel pen and white gel pen give some highlight touches.
We finally found a new for us vehicle last night. David has been traveling all over the Cleveland/Akron area trying to track down a used SUV type vehicle in our price range (cheap!) with as little rust and as low mileage as possible. The rust is pretty important since most of our time up here is spent covered in snow. we were hoping to get 4 wheel drive if possible, too. well my hero pulled the rabbit out of the hat, and Gandalf the Grey is now ours! yes, we name our cars. it's silly, but I have from my very first beloved, Beau. he was my baby blue Camaro, and the love of my life for many years. So now to get it ready to move everyone to school in the next few weeks..... sigh......
btw - this was taken in our driveway this morning with my phone while I was letting the dogs out in the backyard.... the door to the right is our back door going into the kitchen. the door to the left goes into my craft room! it used to be a porch room, so it sits off of the kitchen and is all windows. just a little peeky peeky into where I spend my crafty time! :) our barn/garage is right behind me as I'm taking the photo.
