Good Morning.  I hope everyone is staying cool.  It is in the 90's here and has been for 2 days.  Too hot for me. It is suppose to be in the 80's all week.  I would like it a little cooler or a little less humidity.

Today is the Stempeltraume challenge.  This week it is stripes and dots.  I love both of these so I knew this would be an easy challenge.   I went through this new paper I have from         and thought these colors would be fun.     When I was picking out my stamp this one from Bildmalarna seemed appropriate with the hot weather we are having.  I was hoping that coloring a nice cool image would cool me down.  Didn't work.  I had to resort to Ice Cream.  Stripes and dots are fun.  You should play along with us. 

The other wonderful challenges this card fits are:
Moving along with the Times - Sketch - I liked the simple lines of this sketch.  My middle "square" is bigger than I thought it would be but I really like the sketch.

Handful of Stamps - Water - Yes I want to sit and put my feet in some nice cool water like this little lady.

Pals Paperarts - Summer - Yes Summer has arrived and what better place to be than near some water.

Crafty Creations - It's a stitch up - I love faux stitching and it was just what this card needed.  The polka dot paper just needed something to bring it out.

Spoonful of Sugar - Sunshine  - Who doesn't like the sunshine?  Especially while sitting by the water on a hot day.

The Shabby Tea Room - Summer Fun - Sitting by the water on a hot day just relaxing is summer fun for me.

Simple Doodles - Fun in the Sun - Relaxing and cooling off .....  my type of Summer fun.

Stamp Something - Summer - Great minds think alike.  Summer has arrived and while I love it, I would mind it a little cooler.

Thanks for stopping by.  Thanks to everyone who leaves comment.  I love reading them.

Super cute card here! I know what you mean about the heat of summer really kicking in. We've been blasted with non-stop days well into the 90's, with no end in sight. At least thinking about dangling my feet in the water, like your little image, cools me off some. ;)
Great coloring job on that sweet stamp. Thanks for joining us this week in the Tea Room.
