A slice of summertime.....

I know I said it in my last post but friends it's HOT HOT HOT!!!  Again over 100 degrees here yesterday and so I got to spend some more time crafting!  My card today features the newest stamp set from Wilson Designs:  Strawberry Lemonade.  I made one very similiar for the stamp release however I still had another embossed lemon border on my desk and thought it was perfect to go with the challenge over at the Play Date Cafe this week.  Take a looksie at this inspiration photo!


My inspiration came from the photo directly center............I think a cold glass of lemonade is one of the best things about summer.  Now for my card.........I had this idea since receiving this set to design with to add a little lemon slice to the side of my glass......sooo fun! 



I also made this for the challenge over at Wee Memories..........anything SUMMERTIME.  There is still time to check out this challenge!!!

I'm off this evening to my son's last regular season baseball game.  Kinda sad but never fear......we are going to the Single A World Series this weekend in Liberty, Missouri!!!  Go Bulldogs!  This picture was taken early on in the season where we actually HAD to wear sweatshirts!  My little guy is the second one from the right (he's standing next to the boy without a hat).  They have improved soo much this season and I can't wait to see what next season has in store for them!!



GO BULLDOGS!!!

Oh my word Amy, this is so beautiful and I LOVE how you've used the colors! I had that exact same thought for that glass except I think it needs a companion - strawberry. :) Great job and thanks for playing along at The Play Date Cafe.
