Hi Everyone!

A good Monday to you. I hope your week has started off well. What better way to chill than to eat a big slice of cold, juicy watermelon? My husband road 80 miles on his bicycle yesterday. He always loves to have watermelon after a long ride. I couldn't resist using this little Happy Hopper House Mouse stamp. I don't know if you can see it well, but I embossed the patterned paper by Basic Grey ( Sweet Threads ) with Tim Holtz's sun rays embossing folder, colored the rays with copics and wet embossed the raised rays with Sparkle embossing powder from Sparkle N Sprinkle, to give the rays some shimmer. I also used clear embossing powder on the watermelon. I enjoyed making the summery tag. Thanks so much for stopping by. may your day be filled with sunshine!
