Thanks a Melon!

Hello! Nothing says summer to me like watermelon, Love it!! Just got these stamps in the mail and I had to play. The ribbon matches perfectly IRL. I have such a hard time getting good pictures of cards with alot of white. I just love how this card turned out, think I'll have to make a couple more. You can never have to many thank you cards on hand. It was quite simple and no coloring needed. Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to come back tomorrow for a new Sweet Stop sketch tomorrow!

Lovely Cupcake


Hello! Had a little help taking my pictures today, thought I'd share that photo too! This is one of 4 kittens that we rescued recently along with their momma. All five of them are black! Today I have a Yummy cupcake card to share with you. It's a digi stamp from Heart Song Designs. I colored it with my copics and cut it out and raised it up with foam tape. I thought that this might also have made a nice wedding card?? Maybe use some crocheted lace instead of the twill ribbon?  What do you think? Can't wait to hear your thoughts. Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!
