Thought for the day -

Good morning all!  It is a beautiful day here but quickly on it's way to be scorching hot. Bring it on!! lol.  Hope your weekend is going well.  We spent the afternoon yesterday at a cub scout gathering.  Yesterday was the rain gutter regatta- lots of fun.  For those that aren't familiar with the Raingutter Regatta I am attaching a picture. Jordan is the one on the left and he won this race but lost the next 2.
The object is to be the 1st to reach the end of the trough and you can only propel your boat by blowing. Lots of fun!!  The boys even had a visit from the fire department with the tanker truck.  The had a ball running through the field as they were being sprayed by fire hoses.

Ok on to my card and it's for a very special challenge! Whiff of Joy is having a Guest Designer call and the challenge was to use the colors red & orange and, of course, a WOJ stamp.  I just received my latest order from Simon Says Stamps and I love them! This image is from the May collection of stamps called Aladdin 1001 Nights.
Isn't she pretty! I love this set! I took an indoor and outdoor shot because I was having a hard time with the gems- they kept throwing a glare, lol. This fab sketch was provided by this weeks Friday Sketchers.
Supplies used:  Red & Orange card stock from Bazzil
DP is Basic Grey from the Ambrosia Collection
MS punch, Stampin Up stamp in Geranium red ink by MS
Nestabilities Label
Red & Orange gemstones
Rose and leaf from Wild Orchid Crafts
My image is colored with Primacolor pencils- I am really loving these!
