One of My Favorite Summer Treats

Happy Thursday!  Despite the heat wave we are currently having, I love summer.  My favorite things include spending time outside, BBQ's, longer daylight and fresh fruits and vegetables.  Watermelon is one of my favorite summer time treats.  I love to go to the Farmer's Market and get fresh watermelon but it usually does not last long.  This cute little watermelon came from Simply Charmed.  As for the stamps, the sentiment came from My Creative Time's Just A Little Note To Say set and the face is from Peachy Keen's Wide Eyed Kids set.  It's a little hard to see in the picture but I used distress ink on the background paper and watermelon.  Finally, I played with one of the Sew Easy stitch piercers that I have had for awhile but do not use often enough.

After making this card, I think I may have to go get some watermelon this weekend.  I haven't had any in a really long time.  Have a wonderful weekend!
