Just Chill!

Hello my friends!  Hope you are staying nice and cool!
I have been staying indoors and coloring so this is what I'll be doing this week!
Just a short and sweet post for you today thinking of cool thoughts...
Can I get you to say "Ahhhh!"  Nothing like dipping into a nice cool ice glass of lemonade...only I usually don't take a sip with a meece in it!! LOL!!  This is one of my fave House Mouse stamps!  I've also colored and cut out an extra lemon with sparkle in the right bottom corner of my image panel.  I've dug out some of these clear yellow baubles that I've had in my stash for such a long time.  I thought it would be fun to variously place them on my image...sort of like lemonade drops.
So are you thirsty yet?!

Here are some challenges to enter:
House Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge (HMFMC151) - Liquid Refreshments
Stampendous August Challenge - House Mouse

HUGS & SMILES
