You came whooshing in here thinking maybe July would slow down, being summery and hot and steamy for a lot of us, but, no, uh huh, not happening. Hang on to the strap if you get nauseous due to speed!
I'm so relieved and thankful that those boys and their coach have been rescued from the cave in Thailand! It's really been nerve-wracking and fascinating watching the hundreds of people who have worked diligently around the clock to make this happen, buoyed by the prayers of millions. I hope they are all able to make a full recovery from the trauma. As well, my heart goes out to the family of the diver who died while trying to help.

I added the Cheers die which I outlined in red and then I added the perfect sediment from Technique Tuesday. The preprinted front panel with the whimsical border is from Taylored Expressions. I colored every other square to make it all adhesive. I thought the card still needed a little s'n's' over there in the left corner, so I used the same Tapestry square to stamp and draw a few more sugar cube presents at the base of the glass.
Of course, one doesn't put sugar cubes in martinis, so this drinkie-poo is called, "Death in the Afternoon," and it was reported to have been Ernest Hemingway's favorite drink: pour one jigger of colorless absinthe into a glass and fill it with iced champagne. I'm not making this up. Happy Smirthday to him on the 21st of July. He would have been 119.
