MMB#16 Thank You

Wow is it ever hot out today!!  The Chicago area is in official "heat wave" territory!!   Even the dog can't handle it anymore - when I took a dip in the pool she actually jumped in!  A proud dog parent moment.  Akitas don't particularly like water so this was a big accomplishment from my land lovin dog!  She's been doing all sorts of crazy things today!  She's eating raspberries off the bushes and she jumped on my craft table I have set up under a window.  I guess she wanted to have a peek outside.

I thought I'd hide in the air conditioned indoors for a while and made a card for the Monday Mood Board at WPlus9.  I really love their stamps and try to play every challenge there.   It makes me think about different ways to put the stamps to work for me.  The sets really work well together so building a bouquet of flowers for instance has loads of possibilities.  I made a real effort to keep this a one layer card because I was impressed with the beautiful samples in the photo.  They are so beautiful and clean without any bling or bows.  Here's what I came up with.

Ok so I added a few pearls - does that count?  HAHA!!! Stay cool and have a great day!

Jeanne
