Well...now even the crickets are bored :)
I promise I will be back soon!  Invites are almost done and then I can resume my card obsession!

But since it is Tuesday, that means a new challenge over at Tuesday Throwdown!  Woot woot!  This week we are challenging you to use hot colors.  What are hot colors to you?  I think of the brights-orange, yellow, red.  But as you can see from some of the fabulous creations by the design team, bright pinks and greens are also in that mix.
So here is my "Hot Colors" card!  As I flipped through my cricut cartridges to find a good image to use, the watermelon on the Cheerful Seasons cartridge just really stuck in my mind.  So I went with that.  I cut out a scalloped edge for the orange panel, and printed the sentiment to fit.

The red panel behind the watermelon is embossed with the Swiss Dots folder.  I used my new Spellbinders Ovals for the frame around the watermelon.  Then added some glossy accents to make the watermelon shine and look all yummy :)

Pretty simple card.
Be sure to stop by and play along this week!  We have a great prize to give away from Crop Stop who carries all sorts of wonderful crafting supplies!  You don't want to miss it!

We are also having a design team call until July 29!  If you are interested in being on our design team, be sure to check out the post for all the details!

Until later, thanks for stopping by!!
