It's time for the month end challenge over at BBTB2 and Heather our fabulous leader chose the Melon cut from an old favourite cart Stretch Your Imagination
I decided to use the melon cut in a different way and made a banner!
All my American cyber friends will be celebrating the 5th of July very soon so I made this  card to celebrate their special day!
My card is 6x6" and I cut three melons on blackout and layer @2". The papers are (stripey) printed from a Pink Petticoat download and the stars are from a free download from Gina K.  The little boy cut is from A Childs Year (one of my faves to use at the moment :) ) and I flipped the cut and cut the shadow in red card and base in white card @ 3"and cuttled the base cut with CB folder Swiss dots. This has been pop dotted on to the card just for a little dimension. The word happy is also cut from A Childs Year in gold mirricard @ 1 1/4" and 4th is from Joys of the Season also in gold mirricard @ 2 1/4".  To finish off  I added some gorgeous adhesive little gold balls which my wonderful friend Lillie sent me, thanks Lillie!
As it's month end some of my DT sisters are hopping and offering a little candy along the way so pop over to BBTB2 now and follow the hop from there and see all their mouthwatering melon creations too! We would love you to join in our challenge too and you can use a melon cut from any cart to enter!
Have a great week everyone and thanks for popping in!

Long time no blog! I've been busy with Connor, last few weeks of college and he gets a bit stressed with finishing all his assignments and I've been a bit stressed making sure he gets support again next year. This happens every year I guess I should be used to it by now, but anyway everything has been sorted now!
This week over at BBTB2 our wonderfully creative Susan chose the cut which is the phrase Sunny Days from the Celebrate With Flourish cart. As I don't have this cart I used Create-A-Critter which has the phrase  on too!
My card is 6x6" and I started with the white base and then took two pieces of card , one blue dotty and one piece of lemon pearlesentcut at 6x6 and I cut them from the corner with my paper trimmer to produce the 'sun rays' and paper pieced on to the card. The lemon pearlescent is embossed with CB folder Divine Swirls. I cut a 3" circle using Plantin School cart in lemon and embossed with a QK folder and offset in the corner of my card for the sun. The umbrella silhouette is from A Childs Year cut at 3 1/2" in black card and Sunny Days from Create-A-Critter is cut at 1 3/4" in black and the layer in pink. Lastly I found these itty bitty pink shell beads in my stash and added them to finish off.
I really enjoyed making this as it made me feel all summery unlike the weather we're having here at the moment in the UK!! Rain rain and more rain! I think we had our summer in April lol I do hope it comes back soon!
Don't forget to pop over to BBTB2 and  see the fabulous projects the DT have created this week and as always we'd love you to join in with the challenge too!
Hae a lovely week everyone and thanks so much for popping by!
