Dueling Darlings....

The Divas and the Dazzlers are dueling again. The card on my blog is made from the kit I received from our hostess, Paola. Being that some places have been sweltering in the heat...the theme this month was "It Is Hot...Let's Keep it Cool!"

We received a wonderful kit from Paola that had this great image called Poolside Chicken, by Penny Black. Designer papers by DCWV and K&Company, velumn quotes by DCWV, satin flower from Michaels, ribbons from SU and Michaels. A faux button, and self adhesive stickers and zig zag cardstock border. I colored the image with my copics and even remembered to decorate the inside of my card this month. I added some glitter in the drinking glass although it doesn't show up too well. The sentiment on the outside of the card is from a retired SU set called, Lots of Thoughts.

One of my most special keeping it cool memories is when we had a trampoline and we would put the sprinkler underneath it to cool off. My favorite keeping it cool treat...is a DQ vanilla milkshake!

Thanks for stopping by. Please check out the other Dazzlers and Divas creations. For their blogs, please see my sidebar.

Have a wonderful day!
