Too Hot to Crochet...

It has been too hot here to go outside or even to crochet inside (for me, at least..).It has been in the triple digits here. Summer in the desert~ Here we go... :/ So, I have been making cards. Seeing as how my letter pile is stacking up & I need to answer some letters, anyway.  This one is a new one I tried out. I got the idea from a "Stamp It!" magazine, early 2010. It was originally a thank you card.  It didn't turn out like I had hoped. The original card had a circular stamp inside the punch out. But I don't have anything. And couldn't come up with any good ideas, either. So I tried putting a smaller circle punch-out and stamping around the edges of it. (That's the part that didn't turn out like I had hoped... Sigh.) Oh well. I still think it looks pretty good. I did the white card w/ the embossed dots all by hand/winging it..

And, I made another one of these.  I don't have any more of the puffy "h's" left now. So..  I don't know what I will do for another one.   I have already sent this one out in the mail, and the other one I will need to take up to the post office..

Funny hamsters... this one cracks me up. He's the boy.  He kept trying to drink out of the puppy's water bowl. (A couple times I was worried he would fall in~ he would definitely have drowned)  He drank out of it, a couple times; too.


Here he is, trying to get into her food bowl.

It was hard to get a picture of him (non-blurry), he moves so fast.  

It's a good thing Jetta didn't see Wickett in her food bowl. She would have gotten scared and went into her corner to hide. :P  She is afraid of the hamsters!   One day, she threw up because she was in the same room as the hamsters, and I guess she felt trapped; because she threw up.  The 14 year old thought it was funny (he trapped her in there). (I should have made him clean it up, then it wouldn't have been so funny...)     This is one of her other "safe" spots~ under the kitchen table.  She will be 5 months old next week.   

I thought I would show a picture I took of our apple tree, yesterday. Look how big the apples are already.  Between the puppy stealing them to chew on, and Eon wanting to eat one;  if we get any apples from this tree to make anything, it will be a miracle.. :P

Hi Tina, those cards are cute!
While it gets hot in your place, its getting a bit cold here since its already rainy season. I should be starting on more projects ;)
I think those apples are the best food to cool off the body and give the nutrients needed for summer weather.

I can't wait until they are ripe enough to eat. Eon keeps eating them, but I don't think they are ripe enough... :P
