We got the opportunity to play with the new SOTW "Need a Squeeze" from Unity Stamp Co. I couldn't stop thinking about summer with this sweet lil' stamp, it is SO adorable! Here is what I came up with:

At first I started to craved lemonade, ha ha. So...naturally, I got some, then it made me inspired to make a bright yellow card. But, since I was short on the right color of yellow background paper, I just layered some washi tape on my base and made my own. This card just makes me happy.

Then I thought about oranges...and found this pretty color combo from a paper pack I've been hoarding for far to long...this may get all used up this summer now! I love these colors...especially with this stamp!

Hope you feel inspired to create something bright...or at least get yourself some lemonade or orange juice, ha ha!

Have a great time on the rest of the hop! Thanks for stopping by!
