Watermelon Days

Hi there!  Happy Tuesday!  Is your week off to a good start?  It's been a busy couple of days here so far, but in between commitments, I managed to finish up a card for a couple of challenges.  Two days in a row!  How good it that?  I hope I can keep finding little bits of time in my craft room!

Here is my card:


This is another simple layout and I've used colors I rarely pick up.  The card base and mats are retired SU Glorius Green (I know - who even has any of this anymore?) and the patterned paper is from Recollections, appropriately called Watermelon.  The cute image is Watermelon Wall from MayzyArt.  Mayzy generously provided this and two other cuties as freebies to subscribers of Through The Craftroom Door magazine last year in the May/June issue.  If you are not subscribed to this on-line publication, you should be!  It's very inexpensive, but packed with fantastic craft ideas, tutorials and best of all, free digis with every issue!  And no ads!!!  Anyway, I printed her on Make it Colour Blending Card and colored her with my Copics.  I added some white polka dots to her top and socks with my Sharpie White Paint Pen.  The sentiment is from Create With TLC.  I colored that with Copics, too.  A polka dot flower and some felt leaves finished my simple design.

Here is a close-up of the image:


Thanks for stopping by!  I hope to catch up with your blogs after dinner tonight.

I am entering my card in the following challenges:
MayzyArt Challenge #19 (polka dots)
Sketch Saturday #262 (sketch)
The Cutie Pie Challenge #46 (one for the kids)

Here is SS-262:

Have a great evening!

  24. Carla, I'm not sure if it is a boy or girl, it really does not matter. The card turned out just darling, you can't have summer with out watermelon and it is colored so perfect love the extra touches. Sorry I have not been around.. Everyone is so busy and things have been crazy. I hope things have been well.
