Hello friends!! I hope everyone is staying cool.  

The normal boiling hot and humid days of summer have arrived here in Virginia this week.  After what seems like months of rain, the humidity and heat is now here.  The temperatures are in the high 90's with heat indexes of 100 degrees.  What do I do in this heat...naturally I mow the lawn for 2 1/2 hours. LOL!  Oh well...the price you pay for going away and spending time with family on the weekend. It is now done and I have cooled down in the ice cold shower and air conditioning.  I thank God for the air conditioning in our home!!!

Today I am popping in to share a card I am making for the Shining the Light challenge at Our Daily Bread Designs.    This week's challenge is: White, Ivory and/or your choice of one other color.

Here is a wedding card I made with To the Lovebirds for my niece and her husband to be The scalloped layers are created with the Spellbinders Scalloped Borders one.  The sentiment is framed with a labels fourteen die from Spellbinders.  The top is embossed with a Darice Damask embossing folder.  The butterfly is Cheery Lynn Exotic butterflies-small.
