On to my projects!  I made 2 cards.

The first card features Lawn Fawn's Happy Summer stamp set and papers from Pink Lemonade.  These papers are so happy and cheery, perfect for summer!  I used Perfect Layers rulers to create a mat around the watermelons.  I wanted to create a fun card so it's a bit interactive.

 Here is a close up of the ants carrying one of the watermelons.

You can pull the banner to see the ants carrying the watermelon away.

I used Summertime Charm, the coordinating die set and Pink Lemonade paper pad for my second card.  The black paper is from Elle's Studio.  I love these dies!  They are so easy to use because you can see where you are lining up the die with the image.  And it leaves just the right amount of a border around the image.  I wish more companies would make their dies like this especially if the dies are supposed to coordinate with an image.  Even the little fireflies were so easy to cut!  I stamped and heat embossed the jar onto clear cardstock and then cut it out with the matching die.  I used Perfect Layers rulers to mat my sentiment and the black layer.

I am sure you want to get going on the hop so the very creative Pam Sparks is next!

Thank you stopping by!

What a fun ant card. LOL Love those little ants taking away the watermelon. It's almost picnic time. Love the night time night light bugs too. What a cool set of rulers. No matter how much I try to cut things to the right size sometimes, you just read the paper trimmer wrong. The rulers would be so easy.
