Summer Sweet

Happy Hump Day! Usually, during the school year, this is they day I start to perk up! Half way to the weekend. But, during the summer, I don't like the second half of the week! It means another week is over! Ha! I love summer vacation!

Today's card is pretty summer-y! I love these watermelons from Mouthwatering. Did you know you can punch them out with the 2 1/2" circle punch!? Makes it much easier! And, did you also know that the little leftovers from the Blossom Bouquet punch (retired) makes the perfect seeds! Yep, it does!

I also used the new Delicate Doily Sizzlet. Now, I will say, I was a little hesitant to buy this. I have had lots of problems with the Paper Doily Sizzlet, although SU did replace my first one. It cuts better, but the design is so intricate it is a bit time consuming to get all the little "chads" to come out. Well, rest assured, this new Delicate Doily Sizzlet is awesome! No hanging chads at all! It cuts BEAUTIFULLY! It has three different doilies on it too!

And, you see that big clear jewel? That's called a Vintage Faceted Designer Button. It's a BIG jewel button. Love it! They come in three sizes!

The DSP is long retired, I think it was called Tickets and Tags and it was a kit...Ribbon is the 1/8" Taffeta Basic Black. I still have room in the next share if your interested in these ribbons! Check the bottom of this post for a link!

Oh, and check out the Chevron Embossed background! I LOVE Chevron! It's a new embossing folder! Yay!

Today's card was inspired by the colors at Dynamic Duos and the sketch and Sweet Sunday Sketch.
