Watermelon Crawl!!!

Welcome to The Watermelon Crawl Blog Hop! Who doesn’t like to bite into a red, ripe, juicy watermelon on a hot summer day? Yum!!!! If you drive down South, you can find people selling them on the side of the road, out of their pick-up trucks. I think these are the best, because they come right out of the garden.  You will always find a cute watermelon cut out at a baby shower or wedding shower, we eat them on the 4th of July, and we make sherbet and wine. You will find them in our kitchens; on our walls, curtains and cookie jars. And they are so darn fun to craft with.  Today we have some very talented women that want to share their watermelon crafts with you. So come do the Watermelon Crawl with us! You don’t want to miss anything so the beginning of the hop will start at Pamela's Blog

 The Inside of the card:

This card was so fun to make :) I cut the watermelon from the DoodleCharms Cartridge. The base was cut from Dark Green cardstock and the overlay was cut from a light olive color .. Then I just distressed the edges with Tim Holtz Ink. I made the gems on the edges and the inside from dying them with alcohol ink. I got the idea from another blogger ( TY!!! :) And the sentiments came from K Andrew Designs

Now that you have seen my project... How about some blog candy?!?!?!?!
Since I have been so addicted to making these awesome scrapbooking skittles I am going to give some away :)
