Sparkly AND Sweet….



It’s been SUPER hot these last few days  and we’ve had our share of rain as well so, as you might guess, the humidity level is unbearable as well.  It’s so thick outside it almost immediately zaps your energy as soon as you walk out the door.  I don’t know about you, but I’ve already had enough of a HOT HOT summer!!!  I fell off my bike a couple weeks ago as well and got a bone contusion on my shin bone.  I figured it was nothing more than a bruised bone.  The doctor had told me it would take a few weeks before it would quit hurting possibly but THEN I find out that it is a bit MORE than just a bruised bone.  I had no clue it COULD take as long as a broken bone to heal!  Apparently, a contusion can consist of a “crushing” of the bone.  And that in itself can cause pain and a healing time of up to 8 weeks!!!! What??? I don’t have time for this!!! 


It hurts to sit long without having my feet propped up… my shin swells and it just hurts like the dickens!  But seriously… how many moms can sit with their feet up 75% of the day??? Certainly NOT me!!!  Oh and here’s the topper… today, my husband was laughing and doing the “eh, right?” look and suddenly swung this hand and HIT ME ON THE LEG… DIRECTLY ON my owie!!! Sad smile  So if you have time, throw up a prayer for me… maybe a faster healing time would be great!! Sure would be appreciated!!!


Things have been super busy and a bit crazy around here lately and I FINALLY got a minute to get some more cards done with Gina K Designs June release sets!  Our heat index here as been well over 100 degrees and I can think of nothing more than hanging in the pool or… eating COLD foods!!!  This watermelon stamp from the Garden Fresh set just really is speaking to me lately!  Smile    If you recall, I use the Quickie Glue Pen and some glitter to add to the watermelon I stamped for the June Release Challenge and I did the same with this card.  I just love the way it looks in real life and totally looks eatable! LOL  (Is that a word???)


My card began with a layer of Pure Luxury Red Hot card stock.  I ran just the lower portion of my card with en embossing folder through my Vagabond.  I stamped the image on White and cut it using my Petite Oval and Petite Scalloped Oval Nestabilities.  The scallop was done using Key Lime Accent card stock.  I used Memento markers to color the watermelon and as I mentioned the Quickie Glue Pen to add the glitter.  I stamped the image one additional time and it (stealing Theresa Momber’s inspiration) and mounted it in the corner using Pop Dots.  I layered up to ribbons for the top and added a button with some twin to the middle. 

I hope you are having a great summer and enjoying some fabulous “cool” treats as well.  Thanks for stopping by today and have a great day!!! *smile*
