Enjoy The Summer! Lemonade and Watermelon!

Sometimes it is hard to enjoy the summer in Arizona because it is just too hot out to do anything! Today our temps are sitting at 104 and that is not hot yet!  And when summer comes along so do scorpions! I have killed 2 in the last 3 days, which is not good since summer has just started!

I managed to squeeze in a fun summer card since there are so many summer challenges going on!

I made this a business size card because I will be trying to mail skittles inside of it!
