Dueling Darling Divas August Card---It's So Hot.....Let's Cool Off

This is Lucky Round #13 of the Dueling Darlings!

Judy is our great hostess for the Divas for August and she sent some awesome items for us to play with.  Paola is the hostess for the Dazzlers and these two wonderful ladies came up the theme "It's So Hot...... Let's Cool Off"!  The elements Judy sent were all beach themed and I loved every one of them. I tried to use as many as I could on my card this month, but have quite a few things left over for more summer cards.  

Judy and Paola also asked each of us to share a favorite way to cool off in the "dog days" of summer we have been experiencing.  The best way I know this year is to stay in the air conditioned house and probably in the family room in the lower level.  I also love to have a glass of sun iced tea as a beverage and may even check out the frozen treats in the freezer--WW fudge bars and Skinny Cow cookies or bars are my favorite.

Card Details:

Image/Sentiment—Close to my Heart Beach Babe, Great Impressions Beach Chair

Paper—SU Bashful Blue; Gina K In the Navy; American Crafts Margarita Patterned Paper
