Another week has come and gone as we edge just a little bit closer to autumn. I am so ready to be rid of this scorching heat, I can't even tell you! We have had temps over 100 degrees for 27 consecutive days as of yesterday, the third most in history. But they're saying that we may get a temporary break if a storm system (not the tropical depression Don) manages to hold together long enough to reach us. I've been doing a rain dance all day! Even if it does get here, it will only drop down to the high 90s during the weekend and then will go back up early next week. I'll take every little degree I can get though.
Today is the JustWordz Design Team's second presentation and therefore, another chance for you to enter the giveaway for a set of JustWordz Stamps. Visit the JustWordz blog for details on entering the giveaway. For my project, I made another easel card. This one uses an awesome digi stamp by one of my Outlawz teamies, Anne Fenton. Anne has a number of her digi stamps available at no charge to all members of The Outlawz so if you like this one, you might want to consider becoming a member so you can pick up some of the freebies that are offered on the site.
This pretty teacup and napkin are colored with Copics and coated with Diamond Glaze to give it the appearance of fine china.
