Summer Heat

Like me, if you are living in an area where the weather is super hot, then you know that this is what will happen to an ice cream cone if try to eat it outside.  It sure won't take long to start melting and little people can't lick it fast enough to prevent it from running down their arms.  I bet you remember that happening to you - I sure do.

The challenge this week at Phindy's Friday challenge blog is to create a card with buttons.  You don't have to use a Phindy image to enter but when you do, you get two entries.  Since there are lovely prizes up for grabs and Phindy has such lovely images there are many good reasons to use one.

I am going to enter this card with its hot, hot colours in the following challenges.

Crafting For All Seasons - Ice Cream/Popsicle
Divas by Design - Anything Goes
Papercraft Star - Ice Cream
The Paper Shelter - Anything Goes
Tuesday Alchemy - Buttons
Digi Doodle Shop Challenges  - Anything Goes
