Long Hot Summer

     As we are starting the Memorial Day weekend, locked down and unable to run away to the beach or mountains, where I live we are also facing our first triple digit days of the summer and a heat wave of 100+F for three days in a row!  So, my DT card for the newest weekly challenge at QKR Stampede features a cute QKR image called "Weiner Dog" and I think he looks like he's suffering through one of those looong, hot, summer days!  I know we'll have many more of them this summer but I really hate it when they start as early as May.

     That's all I have for today but I do hope you're going to come and play with us this challenge.  We have some changes taking place over at QKR Stampede and this current challenge will run until May 31.  The next challenge will start on June 1 and it will run for the entire month.  We're going to be a monthly challenge for now, at least during the summer, so you'll have lots of time to enter.  Our themes will continue to be Always Anything Goes.  Have fun.  :-D

     Happy Crafting.  NanaConnie


  1. Absolutely LOVE your Loooong Summer dog, perfect choice Connie.
    I would love to have temperatures like that atm, we have 60F with dark clouds! However I don't think I would like days as hot or as long as you have them. Keep cool and drink plenty!

  2. Fantastic fun image (love your post title ) no wonder the dogs tongue is hanging out with temperatures that high.

  3. It's a weenie dog so you already know I love it. Rambo knows exactly how this little guy is feeling too.....we've already hit 100 several times. Going to be a bad summer for sure. LOVE your card!

  4. Fantastic card Connie, the poor dog looks so like he is melting. Stay safe and keep well.

  11. That is one long hot dog. Hope he found some shade to sit under. I followed the shade round the garden as too hot for me to sit out under. Thankyou for coming and spinning the butterfly wheel with me this week. Hugs Mrs A.
