Simon Says........Summer Food/Drink




Happy Wednesday everyone!  We have a really fun challenge for you this week at the Simon Wednesday Challenge blog!  We're calling it Summer Food and/or Drink, and the Design Team is playing with Hero Arts products this week.  Wait 'til you see my teamies samples!  Here's an inspiration board for this week's challenge.


When I was thinking what to do, I remembered this Love Jar set, which includes the jar and the citrus wedge, and I decided to fill my jar with limeade, a favorite summer beverage for me, and take you all on a picnic, complete with a red and white quilt spread out on the grass!

Limeade 5¢

I stamped the jar on vellum and then on the reverse of a lime cardstock, and used a slightly darker lime cardstock for my lime wedge, stamped in Hero Arts Green Hills mid-tone ink.  The straw was in a Simon CardKit from March this year.  I chose some red and white patterned design papers from various pads and cut them using a die that I think came with my Cuttlebug machine years and years ago.  To make everything fit, I punched the edge of my card with a Daisy  border punch (thank you Jackie!), and lined the inside of my card with a strip of red to make it show up better.
