Hot! Hot! Hot!

Anyone ready for summer? I am not looking forward to summer because I don't like the heat. So far, the weather has been okay, not too hot yet. That's why I like spring the most! :)

Today's card is very summery. I thought about summer when I saw this week's challenge over at Paperplay. Their theme is HOT, HOT, hot (orange, yellow and red). I didn't think I could pull it off with this color combo, all warm colors. But I think it turned out okay anyway. What do you think?

Originally, I was trying to make a shaped card with this image but couldn't thing of a good one to go with it. So I hopped around and used the sketch at Simon Says Stamps. Since Digital Tuesday is to use tags, I turned it into a tag shaped card. The only thing is, I am not sure if this is a digital stamp since I won it from ICS. But the sentiment is! :) Since this is a shaped card, it qualifies for Creative Card Crew and Caardvarks as well. :) Plus, Whimsy Stamps's theme is summer fun so this also counts. Woohoo, how many challenges did I combine? Six!!!

That's it for today. I am heading over to my mom's for BBQ. Our family is getting together for the holiday. Hope everyone is having a wonderful day off.
