Hot Fun in the Summertime

Good Morning Friends! I do not have anything new to show you today as I have been using my Prismacolor Pencils and coloring some images that a nice lady sent me earlier this year. I am trying out different papers to see what the coloring is like on them. This card is not new....only new to you. Sent it to our Nephew, Joshua, year before last. Don't know why I never posted it but, seems appropriate for this time of the year.

Anyway, I am heading out today to pick up some new pencils that match the new colors that Stampin' Up! has put into their new catalog. Quite a shake up with what they did. I am sure a lot of Demos are not too happy about having to buy all new stuff. That's business folks, keep it fresh or you loose sales.

On the home front......we had a very quiet Independence Day. Went to my Mom's and grilled burgers and brats and instead of going to see the fireworks, we played Mexican Train. I think I have told you about my sister, Lisa, who has MS. Well, she cannot tolerate the heat at all. We had fun teaching our Mom how to play. Oh, if you have never played it is a game you play with dominos.

Today I am also running a bunch of errands.....picking up my June order from my demo and heading to a friends for a muslin bodice fitting for my civil war dress I am sewing. I think I have told you about my love for the history from this era, didn't I? Well, progress is slow. I had to wait for my new corset and shoes. Now I have to wait for my hoop skirt......have to get it ordered first. Wayne thinks I should make it, then that way I could make others and sell them. Not sure about that one...the selling thing. I am also growing out my hair, which isn't taking as long as I thought. I will keep you posted on my progress.

Thanks for looking, have a great day and stay cool!
