So this year Cheyenne and I decided to make her party invitations. We wanted something "summery" and she suggested watermelon. My first thought? Oh no. My second thought? "the bug" So I pulled out my trusty "E" and and we started cutting them out. She wanted to have the white part of the rind as well as some white seeds. So that's what we did. I wasn't quite sure what we were going to do once we cut and assembled the watermelons, and then as I lay awake it came to me. I had this old paper that sort of looked like one of those red and white tablecloths you often see on picnic tables. I thought it would be cute to have a little ant brad on each one, but I had almost every bug but an ant! We may add a sun in the upper corner and add "come join us for something sweet" or something along those lines. I think we did a great job, don't you think? Stay tuned for her Flip Flop cards that she wants to make for her "family party".
I was pointed in the direction of this charity by a fellow Stampin Up Demonstrator, Melissa. They can use donations of cards, either Handmade, or Store bought for residents of nursing homes. What a great way to share your creativity, while brightening the day of others!!! Here is their website:

A mother of a 5 year old boy and a 8 year old girl. I love being a mom! I married a guy I met in first grade! We married May 18th, 2002.
I wanted to have a place that I could show some of my creations. When my sister is able to visit she always asks me what I have been working on, so I thought this way I could keep her updated! It's also a way to show some of my other friends and family what I have been working on! This also gives me a little push to get some things made and posted.
I hope you enjoy the things you find here, and maybe even find some inspiration! Some of the things found on my Blog are by Stampin' Up! Ask me how you can get the stamps, or feel free to look at the current catalog found in the sidebar.(it will download, it takes a few minutes). Feel free to ask me any questions!
