It's my turn to host Just Us Girls
and for photo week I picked what I thought was a good summer time picture.
This almost made my mouth water. There are a number of elements you can use to make a card but I went with the watermelon. Shh. Here's a secret. I didn't have any watermelon stamps to I used this as an excuse to get one. I looked and looked and finally decided on a set from Sunny Studios.
I cut a white and gingham panel that I placed over some Desert Storm that had been embossed with a basket weave pattern. The watermelons were colored with Zigs and the smaller one popped up.
The Design Team and our guest designer Aileen have some wonderful inspiration for you. Why not check them out before you get busy on your card. ;) You may be chosen Chic of the Week and have a chance to be our guest designer in September.
