Warm Thoughts

Hi peeps! How are you surviving the summer heat? Seriously, before I move To Texas, never in a million years I ever thought that the weather in the States could be hotter that Indonesia. I figure Indonesia is a tropical country and I guess I always thought the States with the four seasons wouldn't be as hot as any tropical country. Boy... was I wrong.

I am very diligent on putting the  windshield screen nowadays. If I don't do that, I won't be able to touch  the steering wheel.

With summer in my mind, how about a summery card? I recently got this cute Summer Mae from Some Odd Girl and had so much fun coloring her.

And, I decided to try on the flowery fabric tape that I got from Love My Tapes. I was working on their booth on the last day of CHA and was the lucky recipient of a bunch of fabric and lace tape. They have gorgeous lace tape. The lace is made of good quality lace, not the stiff kind.Check out their shop to see it.

The fabric tape has kind of a vintage look to it, but I  think it works pretty well with this image. Know, what I am most proud of about coloring this cute image? I gave her eye shadow. LOL, I am still learning on advancing my coloring skills and many time it's trial and error or simply looking at other people coloring method. Well, this is the first time I ever add that kind of detail and I am thrilled with the result. Here's a close-up. Can you see the soft pink eye shadow?

Thank you so much for stopping by. Have a great Wednesday. :)

This card is so cute! And I love the eye shadow! :)

We lived in Houston for about 1.5 years. Then we moved back to Washington State where the weather is blissfully cooler than TX! And I don't miss the heat (or humidity) at all! Good luck surviving the heat! :)
