6/12 Summertime!

Summertime . . . . well, it's about time!! We've had a long, cool spring. I'm ready for some heat around here!! (You know the kind - it's so hot that you have to stay inside and stamp!) Today, I stamped some homemade lemonade! My grandma used to make this for my brother and me when we were kids. She spent her winters in Florida and would always bring a big box of lemons home to Minnesota with her. A delicious memory that I savor! This SU image is from a long retired set called Simply Summer.

I stamped this lemonade card because of a challenge that was issued on the Great Swaps Girls blog. This challenge was to case a card from Featured Stamper Vickie Waugh. I was drawn to THIS CARD from Vickie's SCS gallery. I love round cards . . . but, I like my cards to easily stand up, too. Not so easy with a round card. So, I took the idea of the round card and put it into a square card. You still get the round feeling . . . but it's easy to display!

Supplies I used to create this card:

Stamps: Simply Summer (retired)
Paper: Ballet Blue, Basic Black, Patterned Paper from my "Stash", Whisper White
Ink: StazOn Black, Barely Banana, More Mustard, Ballet Blue, Bashful Blue
Accessories: Soft Subtles Brads, Black Grosgrain, Corner Punch from All Night Media, Coluzzle to cut the circles, Marvy Circle Punch for the black circle just a tiny bit bigger than the white circle, Aqua Painter
