Squirrel Summer Greeting

Så, endelig er sommern kommet til Nord-Norge også... Men huffameg, det så varmt at jeg smelter vekk! Hetebølgen fra Russland kunne jeg gjerne ønsket søringene fikk istedenfor oss.. Kroppen min tåler ikke 26+ grader (og 35 i sola!), er allerede plaget av hormonelle hetebølger, så jeg må bare beklage til alle som er hoppende glade ~ for jeg ønsker denne hetebølgen var over NÅ ;) 
Huff. Rett fra kjøleskap-tempraturer til sydenvarme.. Glad jeg har en isbit maskin og ei svær elektrisk vifte ♥

Kortet mitt er DT bidrag hos Creative Fingers #132. fra vår sponsor Wink Wink Ink. Som alltid har vi et 'Lag-hva-du-vil' tema, og velkommen skal du være :)

The summer has finally arrived in northern Norway, and I am not well pleased... It is too darn hot! It's a russian heatwave sweeping over us, and beeing used to refridgerator-and-freezer-temperatures so far this year (wich suits me just fine having hormonal hot flashes and issues), it is too much to take in. 26+ degrees in the shade and about 35 degrees on the sun-lit porch (not going out that way for sure)... I am melting! Could not have preservered without my big electric fan and ice-cube-making machine ♥

My DT card for this fortnights challenge #132. over at Creative Fingers has a supercute squirrel motif from our sponsor Wink Wink Ink, and as always it is an 'Anything goes theme'. You are more than welcome to join with your creations ♥
