Good afternoon everyone!  I've been suffering from heat exhaustion the last few days.  Were on a well with 40 other families and on Saturday our pump went out.  We've been suffering without water since then.  I live in Tucson, AZ and it's 108 degrees outside today, and will continue to be all week.  In Arizona a lot of us use swamp coolers, which means that our houses are cooled with water dripping onto straw pads, that then, blows into our houses.  They work great normally, and costs a lot less to use than air conditioning.  They don't work at all with no water.  Needless to say the inside of our house is over 95 degrees.  We've been so miserable.  Our well company has delivered one truck full of water so far, and hopefully will deliver another truck load tomorrow.  Unfortunantly, when they delivered the water they didn't tell anyone that the well was still broken and to stock up with the water they gave us.  So no one knew to store any water.  Did I tell you that I just love our well company?  Their supposed to start working on the pump tomorrow.  This happened last year and we were without water for over 5 days in the same kind of heat.  Very miserable.

Unfortunantly with the heat I haven't got much crafting done.  I did make a card last year for my mom's 81st birthday.  I just love the rubber stamp of the roses that I used.  The stamps are from Sweet Stamps.  You can't tell in the picture, but I stamped mutiple images of the roses, and cut out different areas and elevated them with foam adhesive, which give the roses a lot of dimension.  I believe the paper is by My Minds Eye.  Roses are my favorite flower, and I just love this card.  I think my mom loved it to.  Please keep us in your prayers, we could sure use it.  I hope you enjoy the rest of your day!
