Watermelons and Sketches

watermelon blk

My grandson, Gabriel, grew watermelons in their garden. And, WOW, did he have watermelons! They're so sweet...mmmmm!

GabrielLeah6 Here he is with his sister, Leah

Our garden is winding down but by no means done! I'm busy still doing tomatoes and apples!


Here are a couple cards I did this week for a challenge on Splitcoast, same sketch but totally different looking results!

WT287 Peace Outside Our Daily Bread designs Brocade Borders cut with the new Brocade Borders die, Peace and Brocade Background stamped with Clearsnap chalk ink, Prussian Blue.

SC297 Journey to Another Beginning And this one, from Innovative Stamp Creations, Sketch of Roses II. I stamped the rose onto the Kraft Fair Isle cut piece, colored with Prismacolor pencils blended with OMS, then cut squares with my Spellbinders to spotlight it. I also stamped the background from the set on the die cut piece and the one layer which are both sponged with Distress inks.

Hope your day is wonderful where ever you are... it's beginning to feel like Fall here, a nice "crispness" to the air! Ahhh, love it!

thanks for stopping!
