Keeping Cool xx

I was going through my stamps trying to decide which Tilda stamp to use for this weeks Just Magnolia challenge, which is 'So Charming' and it just had to be this one!!! Well it was a bit like this here today - it has rained loads, but at least the air is a lot less stuffy, thankfully:) even though it is still hot :(

I'm not sure if I've used this stamp before but I love this image - it was part of my Simon Says Stamp prize. I coloured her with PMs and Glamour Dust - same old same old I know lolxx.

I have to say that there is something about the card that I am not sure about. I have a feeling that Mr Mojo is going to have one of his episodes again very soon lolxx. I can sort of feel the creative thing having a bit of a wobble, so I am just going with the flow and trying not to think too much about it.

Either that or this heat is getting to me - I don't cope that well with it!!
Anyway, here it is.

The gorgeous papers are PP and the blooms are a mixture of Poppicrafts, Simon Says Stamp and one from the bottom of the stash box which wasn't in it's original packaging, so I can't tell you where it came from, sorry chicksies xx

I made the charms and it's a shame that this pic isn't brilliant cos IRL the colours are stunning.

I think these are called zooms and I was given them but I don't remember who by :(((

Not doing too well here am I lolxx

Here's the final pic.

I'm on a real flyer tonight peeps. Not because I have anything to do, but it's just that it is so hot in my office that I am wilting at the rate of knots.

So I am off to sit in front of the fan in the living room.
Have the fabbiest of nights and hope everyone is staying cool and that you enjoyed the tennis. Can't wait for Sunday's final.

Hugs xxx

Have a good weekend matey
