Lemonade anyone?????

Hello everyone: The hot days of Summer are still around and, when it gets really humid, it's basically unbearable so, a good dip in the pool or better yet, the beach, does a body real good.
Over at SHOPPING OUR STASH, we have a new challenge for you to play with, we want to see something "HOT, HOT, HOT" in whatever way you can interpret this word. 
Even the little critters try to keep cool so, here one of the little mice from House Mouse, taking a dip on someone's lemonade, LOL!!  I can only imagine the shock to come back to take a sip only to find this little guy chilling out, I know of one dear friend who most definitely won't like this at all.  Me on the other hand, I will handle the mousey a towel and serve myself another glass.😉

I stamped the image with Versafine black ink, clear heat embossed it and colored with some Sakura Koi watercolors, the sentiment is from a Power Poppy set called Sunny Harvest, the sun on the corner was made with a circle die mask using a sponge dauber with Daffodil Delight.


This is how the INSIDE of my card looks like.

The sentiment is also from the "Sunny Harvest" set and the flowers from a retired Flourishes set, I can't remember the name, I apologize.

So I hope you come and play along with us over at SHOPPING OUR STASH, we can't wait to see what you create.  Stop by the blog to see my teammates awesome creations.

I'm playing along with the following challenges.

Dream Valley Challenges #184 "Animals"

Thank you for stopping by, I always read every single comment you so kindly leave on my posts, I want you to know I appreciate them more than words can express.
Until next time,  happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.
