Watermelon Gazpacho cards

I am blogging live (well sort of, I made these cards this morning, then went on a run now I am posting them). Before going on holidays (gone most of July) my crafting started to feel like a chore as I had so much on my plate to get done before I left.  Anyhow, it feels good to play just because and have some fun with it again. 

I wanted to break into my Card Kitchen July kit, which is full of Jillibean Soup Watermelon Gazpacho goodies - I have to justify purchasing them somehow ;)  


For my first card I used this sketch from Sketchbook Saturday:


I fussy cut the clothesline from pattern paper, and the sentiment is from SRM Stickers


The next card I made used this week's CPS sketch:


Again more fussy cutting and a SRM Sticker.  This and the next card are for The Kraft Journal challenge - use a sketch.


For the last card I was inspired by this sketch at iSpy sketches - but it did kind of get away from me, hehehe.

I also incorporated the Circles, Blue and Floral from The Paper Players.

Again some fussy cutting and I had fun with my stitching on this one.  In all cases the clothesline is mounted on foam squares.
