Sweet Summertime Challenge

Is it finally Summertime where you are?  We are having some nicer days, not quite summer but a move in the right direction at last!  Seems like it was a long winter, barely spring and now we are moving into Summer.
This next 2 weeks at Guylou's Inimitability our challenge is Sweet Summertime.  The challenge is to do a Summer themed card with the word SWEET on the front of the card.  I am pretty sure that when they added the part that it has to be on the front of the card that was for me!! LOL, I tend to get carried away with what I am working on and then forget parts of the challenge and then you often will find me putting part of the challenge on the inside as I can't find a place on the outside!!!  I used some new papers this challenge.  New yes, but still My Mind's Eye!  I just love the colors of these papers!
I have to tell you that I just love all these gorgeous Leah images.  Today Guylou has brought us another one. This is Leah eating watermelon.  My first thought was that it just screams 4th of July.  But nope, I used lime and red instead!!  The colors reminded me of a watermelon!  I distressed my edges and used a Nestie to cut her out.
This awesome sentiment is from our very own Tracy.  
Now, this challenge goes for 2 weeks. It starts now and ends June 30th at 10 PM EST.  You'll want to check out the rest of the Design Team's creations.  They are always awesome.  Would you like to be a Guest Design Team member?  The winner is asked back just for that!!  As well as winning some images from Guylou's store.  

Now I am going to enter this in some challenges.
Crafting for all seasons has the challenge of Summer
For fun challenges is summer fun. Is there more fun than eating watermelon in the Summer?
Little Darling Challenges theme is summer!
Anything Goes Challenge is also Summer.  See how I am on a role here?

Craftdee said...

You're quite right: these colours are so "watermelon"!! Perfect for the cute image. Funny thing about the weather; we're FINALLY getting some WINTER weather, as in rain! We've had the longest summer - it sucked up autumn, not that our autumns are all THAT :-) It's still 20c but at least our dams will go above 22% capacity (which is all they are now) Dee

Bren this card is wonderful...just screams summertime. Love how you used papers that resembled the colors of a watermellon. You did a fabulous job distressing them too. I always have a problem with that so tend to stear away from it lol.
