Summertime = Watermelon!

Hi friends! 
and it's officially Summer!!  ♥
I love that 'the babies' (as I dub them) are home with me
during the Summer - laid back, carefree and lazy! :}
Well ... Monday officially starts our treasured VBS for a week
 and then 3 weeks of theater camp so a little break at least :)
When I think of Summer, one of the first things that comes
to mind is fresh watermelon - the kids and I are always
running around with a wedge or two.
It's my day to post on the Whimsy and Stars Studio's blog - YAY!
I chose this darling Watermelon Boy image to showcase
because he is just so sweet and represents the start
of summertime joy ♥
You can find him here in the shop :)

And the inside ♥

Now you may notice something a bit different about this card
from my regular cards - it's sideways!
I next to never make a East to West card, always North to South!
I accidentally put the paper sideways when assembling the card
absolutely meant to put the paper on the card this way *grin!*
So this is a bit of a rare treat for me!
Be sure to head on over to the blog for more summertime
inspiration all week long and if there is an image that
catches your eye, scoop it up! 
There is plenty to chose from and you get instant
downloading after your purchase - easy peasy!
And if you aren't a fan on Facebook, please do consider
joining us as we'd love for you to see all the inspirations
and upcoming goodies, too!

As Always,
Big Hugs, Bigger Blessings!
