Keep Cool...Have Fun!

I everyone...I hope that you have been enjoying your Wednesday. My morning started with taking my little LoLa to the Vet. She is not feeling good and they had to do test. I find out the results tomorrow. It is so sad to see her not feeling good. Plus not fun going to the Vet..wow is it expensive. Man I can't believe the charges.

So now that we are home and she is sleeping...I decided why not make a card or two... I made this card for the Lawnscaping challenge...Color Splash. Such a fun challenge and so perfect for those summer cards. I did this card of course all summer...because we are getting a pool. It is above the ground and can't wait. We had one before and loved it. Our yard is too small for an in ground pool.  Hey as long as I have some cool water to jump in when it get hot. I am so good.
Recipe:  Lawn Fawn Swimsuit Season, Prismacolor Pencils, Neenah kraft card-stock, Timeless Twine Pumpkin Orange twine, Memento tuxedo black ink pad, Martha Stewart Crafts all purpose gel adhesive, Scotch advanced tape glider and Recollection foam adhesives.

I must share that this is the first time in YEARS that I have colored with Color Pencils.  I like the way it looks...what do you think?
Have an awesome day.
Thanks for stopping by.

  1. Hi Annette! hope Lola is feeling better and that the tests show something easy to fix! Love your orange on the Kraft - and all the fun summer images - how great you are getting a pool! On the hot days of summer - I always tell my DH - lets even just get a kiddie pool so we can sit in it and get cool!!!

  2. Poor Lola! I hope she's just fine before you know it. It's hard to watch them feel bad :( And no kidding it's expensive, but they're your babies, what do you do, right?
    I love the orange & kraft together - you should link up at little red wagon since they have a kraft challenge this week! Here's the link:

  3. Cute card, love that you used orange to color with. Nice and bright and summery. (Is that a word?, summery?) Oh well, have a great day. And yes, medical expenses for a pet can be as expensive as a human these days. Hope she feels better.

  6. Wow, you can COLOR girl! I can't believe you achieved such vibrancy with pencils-it looks great. I love the touch of twine. Sorry about Lola...that is a bummer...it's hard when they can't tell us what's wrong. I hope it's not too serious.
