Yes, my life is in transition. I am now getting used to life as a widow. What will this bring? Time will tell.

Are you just melting with the heat? That seems to be all
we talk about here in Myrtle Beach.  The thermometer just keeps
climbing a degree or two every day.  I could really use some rain.

I've been hiding out in my air conditioned craft room.
One of my finished projects is for a recent
Steampunk Swap that we had at 

When I first saw the image of the woman I could see her hat embellished
with a cog or gear.    She has been cropped and placed on a fabulous
steampunk paper by Dezinaworld.  The image is layered and placed on more
designer paper and embellished with metal cogs and gears and butterflies.  The
balloon is clip art.

This is suitable for the following challenges
Frosted Designs - Circles
Ooh La La - Circles
Come and Get Challenged - Anything Goes
Opus Gluei - No Words
Gingersnap Spicy Supply Challenge - Gears, Cogs, Watch Bits

I sure hope you are staying cool.  Me, I'm waiting patiently for Fall.

Thanks for joining me today

Totally liking the feel of this card - it has the steampunk edge but also an elegant feel to it - and that's not easy to do! Great job!

Doesn't need words either and so it fits perfectly in our Opus Gluei challenge. I'm so glad you found us, hope you return for more challenges with us!
