I'm hot, but not in a good way!

Phew!  It has been quite 'warm' here in Colorado - temps in the 90's and 100's.  I think I mentioned before that I have friends visiting from the UK so we have been out and about having fun - so I haven't been doing much crafting. I have however been doing a lot of shopping and every time I go into the store, the shop assistants always ask "How are you today?"  My standard answer (much to the embarrassment of the teenage daughters with me) is "Hot, and not in a good way."

I wish I could be 'hot' like this cute chick from Saturated Canary.  This image is called 'I'm sweating you'.

She is coloured with Pro Markers (skin: Blush/Soft Peach, hair: Vanilla/Sandstone/Mustard, clothes Salmon Pink and Cool Aqua.)  The paper is from Heidi Grace Designs (sorry I can't remember the name), ribbon and lace from my stash.  The flowers on the bottom are made with card candi (which I have raved about before) by Craftworks.  Here is a closer look at the flowers.

I bought a load of card candi a while back and shared it with my friend DeAnna from Paper Grandma. One of the packs she bought and shared with me was called 'Icing' - these are plain white pearlised.  I wasn't sure how much I was going to use these until she suggested that I could colour them with my markers to make perfectly co-ordinating embellishments (genius!)

Here is another look at a little detail that does not show up so well in the top picture - a little bead of Diamond Glaze for the sweat on her forehead.

Well, a short and sweet post today - hopefully it won't be too long before I am back again.  Stay cool.
