A picnic with watermelon - it just doesn't get any better than that. Believe me we need some nice cold watermelon here today. It's 97 degrees. I love that little bos you made for your Dad and I'm sure he will also. You have such nice clear crisp colors for both the card and box. Enjoy your day.

"When you go out in the woods today you're in for a big surprise. When you go out in the woods today you'd better go in disguise." Your card is so dang cute. Takes me back to when I was very little and would listen to the radio. I will always remember that teddy bear song. Hope all is going well with you Sue - I have been waiting for you to post!
