My first card is for Penny's newest challenge: watermelons in honor of national watermelon day.
I used some MME papers(So Sophie) and g.c.d (Melody Ross) paired with this super adorable image from Digi My World. This is "Watermelon Day Brittney" and she's ready to share some watermelon with you! That's a SRM sticker I used with some rhinestones. I brought this green seam binding back from Paris. I love this color! It makes perfect bows! Sadly, it's already half gone. :-(

My next card is for Crafty Creations Challenge this week which is by invitation. I made this card with Digi's with Attitude "Viagra Simon". Ironically, my SO is named Simon. Also his birthday is coming up and because he is older than me I like to tease him about being the oldest. I know, it's not very nice of me. I do it in a loving way. Life's too short to be upset and uptight so I'd rather make a joke and smile about it. Inside reads, "to old age!"
I made a pennant card for this. Then lined with some older paper scraps from Sassafras Lass. I cut a small piece of twill, stapled it down and then tied a button with brown baker's twine around it. That's a journaling spot from Elle's Studio. A friend sent me the blue ticket and I just added another button. I hope he smiles. That's what I really want for him to do when he sees it. I think he will since he's clearly no where near this man's age and has all of his teeth. Thankfully! Also not a prune fan. Challenges I would like to enter this card in:
