Cool It!

If you're almost anywhere in the United States it's hot.  So how weird is it that here in Florida it's about 10 to 15 degrees cooler than most of the rest of the country!  If you're living with this oppressive heat you might as well stay inside, if you've got air conditioning (if not go someplace that has it) and work on a card for this week's Pile It On challenge PIO 30 "Fun in the Sun".  This week we are sponsored by Paper Pretties and Heather has given the design team a choice of some of the fun digis created by Artish.  Paper Pretties has it all, believe me I've gotten everything I need there and Heather is just a sweetheart.  So if you're looking for stamps or digis, paper or embellies, make a stop at Paper Pretties, you'll like it there.  AND Heather is offering YOU a 20%.  Just use the code: PILEITON.
Need some inspiration, go over to the Pile It On challenge blog where you'll find the rest of the design teams work, the very simple rules and a linky thingy.
