Ah, it's time for the afternoon thunderstorm. We've been in a bit of a rut here, lately. Daytime highs in the mid-90s, afternoon crash-and-bang. Our power was out for a couple of hours the other day after a short-but-intense storm, and I can't believe I'm still married. As soon as the hubby realized that the TV would not be back on for a little while, he was useless. Freaked out. Done. I had a batch of dinner rolls on their last rise, and ended up baking them on the grill, which worked just fine. Still,  he insisted that we go out to get a fast-food dinner, (because, despite the fact that we did have water, hot water, even, he was sure I wouldn't be able to "clean up" after I finished grilling the food) but, of course, they had been without power, too. I realize that there are way too many real problems in the world to have been praying for power so he'd chill his butt out, but I did anyway, and they were answered before bedtime.
Heaven help us (truly!) if there should ever be a real emergency.

Anyway, he's off doing a church-thing, and I'm using the down time for a little crafting.

This one's for the challenges at:
CCEE Stampers - Use pink (In honor of National Pink Day!)
Paper Sundaes - Recipe (I used gems and pieced the dress.) - Use this sketch:

I loooove the Pure Innocence stamps, but they are a bit expensive for the shoestring budget. No problem! The artist has an Etsy, digistampcharacters, and she's made her drawings into digis! I paid $3 for this one, $7 less than at my favorite scrapbooking store!

The rest of the recipe:
Paper - American Crafts (background), Little Yellow Bicycle (her dress)
Die cuts - Nesties
Colored with Copics (a big of a challenge with digis...)
CS - Bazzill
Hello stamp and gems are from the stash.
Embossing folder - Cuttlebug
Chalks from the dollar bin at AC Moore
Ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon (yes, it is!)

Thank you so much for stopping by today. Hope our power stays on, or I may have to come live with one of y'all! :)

Have a wonderful day!
