Clearly iStamp - #2 - Summer Time

Happy Sunday my friends!!  What a beautiful day it's been so far - sure, it's a bit cloudy outside...but the morning was spent in His house and this evening will be spent in His house.  How can it not be a good day when the day starts and ends with the Lord?

This week is VACATION!  My hubby is off work this week too and we have all sorts of exciting things planned:  washing screens/windows, spring/winter/fall/summer cleaning, trying to find homes for some of the stray cats around here.....doesn't it all sound like it's such fun?  But I'm sure there will be lots of time in the craft room too.

My first "vacation" card is one that reminds me of the simple joys of summer.  I love watermelon!!!  It's so quintessential "summer" to me.  Of course these days I buy the seedless ones, but I remember being a little girl and picking out all those seeds.  Hmm, I wonder how many I actually ate? 

When I saw this image in my stash, I knew I had to use it for the Clearly iStamp challenge this week - "Summer Time".  Everything I used for this card came from my stash - the image, papers, bling, even the cardstock used were pieces rom previous projects.

 
Thanks for stopping by today!  May God bless you and your family today!!
