Hot Air Thinking of You

Hope everyone enjoyed their long holiday weekend. We ate more than our share of hamburgers and hot dogs. We were very lucky to have sunshine all weekend, too. Thanks to those of you who served, are serving or have family members serving our country in the military. Your service to our country is deeply appreciated.

This card was made for one of the VLVMay2010 challenges on SCS. It is a sketch challenge with inspiration pictures. This was one of the May sketches. I didn't get them all done on time in May, but wanted to use this fun sketch anyway. Going to try to start the June sketch right away, so I don't get behind.

Thanks so much for dropping by today. Hope you are having a wonderful week.
