Watermelon Crazy & Watermelon Cards!

Hey guys!

Not sure if you all know but I am CRAZY about watermelons!  My kids and I have been eating different types of watermelon all Summer long.  Most we have purchased from the Farmer's Market or off the corner.  I love when I am cutting open a watermelon and it is bright red and juicy!  Here are some of my favorite varieties!

SEEDLESS WATERMELON
WATERMELON CANTALOUPE HYBRID
BLACK DIAMOND WATERMELON
SQUARE WATERMELON

I felt inspired tonight to work on some cards for some of the ladies I go to church with.  Of course, watermelons were on my brain so I pulled out my Cricut cartridge Simply Charmed and my MPS stamp set Fruit & Veggie Puns and made some of the following.  They were super quick and simple to make and I think they turned out super YUMMY!!




Hope y'all have a wonderful day!   Look, I have an Oklahoma accent!  Can you believe it?  I've lived here for 8 years now and I finally have picked it up!  

Hugs!
Robyn

  6. So cute! I love watermelons too but I can`t say as I great at picking a nice sweet one :( However I just learned that you should pick one with a yellow spot becuase that means it ripened in the field and was not pickeds too green. So next time I pick one I will be looking for that :)

  26. Robyn, I know I just commented...but had to come back and ask...where in the world would one find a Square Watermelon? I asked dh, since he knows everything...he's never heard of them. Is it an Oklahoma thing? Would love to taste one...looks great.

    Have a great day!

  27. Ilove your videos and bought my Expression 2 after watching your videos, I see you are now using your old Expression...did I make a mistake? I am having a hard time reading the E2 screen and don't find it very user friendly. Do you recommend the older one?
