Piling It On

If you visited here before you probably know that I'm a challenge junkie.  So when PIO (that's Pile It On for those of you new to this stuff) asked me if I wanted to be a guest designer I jumped right on board.  I'll be playing along with the PIO gals for the month of June.  What fun!

At Pile It On the idea is to use their challenge theme and at least one other challenge but the more challenges you can pile on the better.  I am amazed at the number of challenges those gals find.  Visiting the PIO blog is how I find most of the challenges I enter.

This week the challenge theme is "Summer Heaven" and the sponsor is Sassy Cheryl's.  Lots of cuteness to be found in that shop.

don't forget the inside

My card is made with Watermelon Bee.  When I was a child one of the things I looked forward to was having watermelon and back then you only got watermelon in the summer and you had to buy the entire melon so we didn't get it very often but when we had family parties and picnics there was always watermelon.  So my memories of watermelon are colored by the joyous fun that went along with the day.  I still love watermelon, and now that I can get almost everyday of the year I think I love it even more.

Here's the deets:
stamp - Sassy Cheryl's digi "Watermelon Bee"
ink - hp printer
paper - My Mind's Eye "Tickled Pink"; Stampin' Up "Certainly Celery" cs for mats; Georgia Pacific white cs for image
miscellaneous - copics; SU ribbon; My  Mind's Eye bling; Watermelon button (cut the shaft off); My Favorite Things large scallop and large scallopey scallop border die-namics; stickles; Nesties oval and scalloped oval dies

Here's the challenges:
PIO - Summer Heaven

For Fun - End of School
Paper Variety - Tutti Fruiti
Top Tip #36 - Wrap It Up with Ribbon
