Thinking cool Thoughts...

It has been so hot here lately, so I decided to post a picture of
something cool!   This picture is from my backyard a couple
of years ago.  It doesn't snow here to often. But I love it
when it does...

Over at the Shabby Tea Room they are doing a
COOL little them..  Christmas in July..

Here is the Card I came up with for the challenge..
I just love this image and I had alot of fun
coloring him..  I used watercolor pencils and
my blender pen..


And the card below I my for my
 Brother In-laws B-day..
I am entering it into two different challenges.
The first one is for One Stop Craft Challenge
 which I missed the dead line.. Oh Well....
The challenge was to do a card Monochromatic..

I knew I should have posted yesterday. I just
ran out of time...

The sketch I used was from Mojo Monday..

Well I hope you are enjoying your weekend,
I will be here just thinking cool thoughts.

Thank you for stopping by and taking a peek,

Hugs, Linda

Both cards are really cute, Linda.

I especially like the Christmas one, though.
Hehe, probably because it making me daydream of snow and cooler weather.
