Last post for today - Watermelon!!

The Day 89 challenge had me stumped. We were to use an image of a watermelon - or the colors as our inspiration. Well, I am fairly low on colored cardstock right now - so I knew that wasn't going to happen. I had all but given up, when I was looking through a drawer and found these cardstock stickers of summer stuff. When I saw the watermelon, I just KNEW that I could use that for this challenge. Then I wondered - now how can I use this on a card - when I got the idea to make it an invitation to a BBQ - not that I will necessarily send it out - but I have one if I did decide to invite someone over for a party!! The card seemed to plain with just the image and the sentiment, so I added the red grosgrain ribbon. Of course, I never have exactly the ribbon I want at the time - checkered ribbon would have been perfect, or even dots!! Oh well, you can't have EVERYTHING for creating - otherwise you would never have to go buy anything - even stores don't have everything!!
What fun - enjoy your weekend parties and BBQ's and come back to the spa soon to see what else I am up to. Until then - *~*Paula*~*
