Box of Cards

My Project:

Happy Monday!
I hope everyone had a fun and safe holiday weekend!

Another week is upon us for some fun challenges!
This week it's all about Summer!

For my summer time card, I decided to create something showing
one of my most favorite things about summer....
I LOVE cold, crisp watermelon - it's the BEST!!!

I have never used the Doodlecharms watermelon
so that's the image I cut out.

I used a Peachy Keen Princess face - SO CUTE!!!
And I put the watermelon on an Action Wobble - SO FUN!!!

The sentiment comes from Tara's Summer Lovin' Set
and I just LOVE the font on this one!
You can purchase this set HERE

The twine is from Trendy Twine,
I used Peppermint Stick and Twisted Lime
and if you haven't ever used this twine,
it is AWESOME!!!

I hope that you will link up with us over at Craftin' Desert Divas
and show off your Summer Time projects!
