Hello, if you live in the US.........HOT ENOUGH FOR YOU?
Oh my goodness, this is obscene.  At 6 am this morning, it was 85 degrees
and we live in the Northern US!  The heat index says it fees like 104!
Now they are asking you to conserve electricity because the grids are overloaded and in
some places power has gone out..............YIKES!

This adorable digi is from the Priscillas Style Store.  I suggested an image of a little girl
sitting at a table looking at a jar with lightening bugs in it to another well know digi artist and she did say she would put it in her file and liked the idea, but never created one, so I was so excited when I saw that Priscilla had done a digi like this.

Sue your card is adorable and evokes memories of when I was a child growing up in New England. Although there are a lot of fireflies in Georgia. I used to catch them and put them in jars-but my boys were never I love how you framed this with the lattice and flowers. It is dynamite!
