You're invited to a picnic!

Happy Wednesday!  I am back to share two cards today with you.  It's quite the pair. 
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.  :-( 

Challenges I would like to enter my card into:
Clear It Out: Use Old supplies and  Summer (button, sticker, and papers)
Crafts and Me: #46 Anything Goes
Divas by Design: #7 Summer
Tuesday Throwdown: #60 Summertime

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:

Crazy Amigos Challenge: Anything Goes
Digis with Attitude: #32 Anything Goes
Dutch Dare: #123 Birthday
For Fun Challenges: Anything Goes
Lexi's Creations: #45 Shaped card

By the way!  This is my 500 post!  Yahoo!  I am going to take pictures of a give away I will post tomorrow!

Hey there, Amy! Welcome back and congrats on your 500th blog post! WOOT! Your cards are just adorable. I have to say that I really snickered about the old man card. He is tooooooo funny. LOVE the pennant shape of the card and love the twine/twill/ticket combo on there. And what a sweet watermelon card that is. Beautiful coloring job and color combo. Love that green ribbon from Paris. Oo-la-la!


Everyday is National Watermelon Day in my world! I eat it everyday during summer! My kids don't like it cause that's all I ate while pregnant.

Adorable cards and thanks for all the sweet comments left on my blog. U R the Best!

Really like the design on the watermelon card! And love that you used our sponsor this month (even though this card isn't technically for the challenge!).
Like the orange striped paper on the pennant card! There is always room for rubbing it in on being younger....my friend turns 40 next week and we sure are going to have fun with that on Monday!!
Thanks for playing with us at For Fun Challenge! Hope to see you Wednesday for the next challenge!


What a fun card..anyone should get chuckle out of that. You did a great job on it.
Thanks for joining us at The Corrosive Challenge.
