For You IBSIC #16...

Edmonton is heading into a heat wave.  They are forecasting temperatures above 30oC (86oF) for the coming week.  I am guessing I won't be doing much creating as I am not a fan of the heat and hate trying to peel myself from my stamping chair when I am finished :)  

I really feel for all the people and creatures in Eastern Canada and the U.S. (and any other place) who have been trying to cope with temps in the high 30's - low 40's (86-113oF).  Hopefully it will be over soon, leaving everyone safe and sound.

I had the chance to relax and create with my mom yesterday.  It was really great to spend some one on one time with her and we had a great visit.  She likes to do some "Cardy-O", but doesn't very often... she finished three cards (without any prior plan) in the time it took me to finish this one card (and I had a complete plan LOL).

When we were finished, we had a bite (actually, LOTS of bites) at the most amazing little restaurant in Edmonton; Absolutely Edibles Real Food Fusion.  If you are ever in Edmonton make sure you check out this place.  You will not be sorry you did; they do amazing things with food!

Now on to the "quick" 3+ hour card...
