Happy Monday! Hope you had a good weekend. It was very pleasant here all weekend. The temps have been rather low for June which is very nice. We just turned our A/C on a week ago. Unfortunately, our upstairs unit was in need of freon. We had to wait a couple of days for the A/C guy to come and fix it. Sonny was in the A/C/Heating business (York) and has a jug of freon but he doesn't have the tools to put it in the unit. But at least we only have to pay for the service call and not for the freon because it is ridiculously expensive. There were a couple of nights last week before we got it fixed that when we went to bed, it was 85 degrees upstairs! Luckily we have an old box fan that we turned on and it did the trick for us. Our A/C units are on their last legs ... they are 20 years old so we know we are on borrowed time with them. We haven't been able to go out on our boat because it also is not running! Sonny worked on it for several days with no luck so he had to take it to the shop. It's been a little over a week now and we haven't heard from them. Hopefully, we'll have it by this weekend so Sonny can spend Father's Day on the lake.
I pulled out one of my old Paper Pumpkin stamps (from Jan. and Feb. 2019) to make this card.
The card base is Calypso Coral. I ran the Whisper White piece through the Country Floral Embossing Folder (retired). I used a dauber to lightly put ink (Mint Macaron and Calypso Coral) onto the raised up flowers and leaves. The Mint Macaron and Whisper White piece in the center was run through the Rectangles Dies. I used SU Blends to color the cactus, lizard, bird and teacup.
