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!

Watermelon from Preserves Cricut Cartridge
Lemon from Simply Charmed
Paper from scrap pile ( I think it is from Target)
The Twinery Twine: Peapod
Skittles Red spots DoubleClick
Enjoy the Summer stamp Docerela Summertime
Distress Stickles Scattered Straw
Stickles Icicle
Liquid Pearls Key Lime

Update on Skittles!
I recently SOLD OUT of many of my releases. Since I invent the colors in my lab they are hard to reproduce. I will be working on additional colors to add to the shop. In the meanwhile, I have cleaned up and updated my shop and have a new release called Desert release and A bonus FREE color with any purchase. You can check out my store HERE

 Free with any purchase:
