Sweet...

I used the Lawn Fawn Simply Celebrate Summer stamp/die set and the My Favorite Things Sweet sentiment stamp and Sweet die to make a couple cards...
I LOVE  these Lawn Fawn "Simply" stamp dies sets!  They are simple, and simply adorable!  I also purchased the sentiment stamp set that goes with the "Simply" stamp/die set, but chose to use the My Favorite Things Sweet stamp/die set for today's cards.  I stamped, embossed, die cut and layered the ice cream cones, them swiped the pink marker on a piece of cardstock and die cut the sentiment and layered, as I wanted it to "match" the ice cream.  I used an old Papertrey Ink impression plate (Tin Types) for the background.  Here's a close up...
The other one, I used the watermelons for a card to encourage a friend!...
I absolutely LOVE watermelons...my family thinks I'm crazy, but I never buy one watermelon....usually two or three at a time!  I love watermelon, but am always afraid that if I buy one and picked a bad one, I'll have none...so two or three gives me better odds of getting a good one.  One time I picked three BAD ones...the most recent purchase, I have eaten two of the three and so far, both were AMAZING!!  There is nothing like a beautiful, sweet watermelon...and while the summer lasts, I will indulge as much as possible.  I used another Papertrey Ink Impression plate for this card (retired Simple Stripes) and popped the top and bottom up over the watermelons.  Here's a close up...
Hope you are enjoying the sweet simple things in life, this summer, ice cream and watermelon...it doesn't get much sweeter, or fun than this!!
Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa
