Sweet Summertime Challenge!

Whew, is it hot outside or what??? It hit 103* here today and when you are already feeling the heat at 8 am, it always makes me want to go home and eat some ice cold watermelon! Yum...I may just do that today! Talking about watermelon brings me to our next challenge at Guylou's Inimitability! Our host this week is Gina! She is one heck of an amazing woman with mad coloring skills...and if you don't believe me, just check out her blog! Miss Gina felt we needed to show our sweet side and make a summer themed project that MUST include not only the word "SWEET" on the front of the card but must also have a summertime theme, i.e. watermelon, ice cream, popsicles, (making myself hungry) flip flops, bathing suit, beach, sand, you get the drift right?

Here is my take on it....

I used Chuck Eating A Watermelon, made my own watermelons, and those black things are little ants! I really like this image, Chuck is so cute! Make sure you check out all the design teams creations. All the wonderfully talented women are listed on my side bar! My sweet sentiment came from our very own Tracy S. Thank gosh she is around to come up with some "sweet" sayings! Thank you Tracy!

Now make sure you follow the theme...."SWEET" and summertime things....and follow the guidelines as well! Check them out here. What would a challenge be without a prize. The winner will be awarded a $5 gift certificate from Guylou's Inimitability Store and will also be invited to be a Guest Designer on an upcoming challenge.

You will have until June 30th, 10:00 pm (EST or click here to find out the corresponding time where you are) to enter your cards or projects here. Be sure to add the link to your entry and not your whole blog as this makes it much easier on the team to find your creations. Thanks for participating!

Awww, thanks for the nice words about me, Kim. You made me blush! Your card is adorable. I love your watermelons. Did you make them with a circle punch and then cut the circles in half to layer? Great idea, however you did it!
