A slice of Summer

Hello again,

Today I am sharing a card made for my niece’s birthday later this month, it is already on its way in a parcel full of Lego as requested and not 'girls' Lego either! She spent a lot of time playing with her Dad’s old Lego when she last visited us in NSW and took it all home with her, she told us she didn’t have any and she really really liked it! 

Some other things she really really likes is pineapples and watermelons so much so that at her Mum’s she has all pineapple “stuff” and at her Dad’s when they decorated her new bedroom she got all watermelon “stuff like pillows, a mat and even a doona cover!”

That made things easy to decide she got Lego and her birthday card from my parents was to be a watermelon card, I made my card earlier this year using one of From the Heart Stamps Stamp of the Month images, Faith (From the Heart Stamps owner and designer) is very unwell at the moment and is having treatment for a brain tumour, Please keep Faith in your thoughts and Prayers.

This is probably the easiest card I've made in a long time, four circle dies, adhesive tape and sheets, a flag and a few punched hearts cut in two.

Here is my card:-

White card blank
Dark green cardstock
