Melon shaped card

I bought a HUGE watermelon at the grocery store and eating it this week (by myself, mind you!) has put me in a watermelon card making mood!

The watermelon is from Stretch Your Imagination cartridge and I used my Gypsy to weld two postage stamp shapes from Gypsy Wanderings.  All paper and card stock is by SU!

I liked it so much that I made a look-a-like card:

Hee! Just so you know, Kenny has a lot of images, not just racing girls. He's got cowgirls, bikers, musicians...just a bunch of sassy people. Then there's others that look like they belong in a comic book. =)

That is Card super. In fact I was just looking at all the goodies I got from you and thinking about using the blue border print ribbon that is gorgeous. So soon
Hugs, Diana

Cely, this card is SWWWEEEETTT...hehe! I love that melon and the colors are great! Love the look alike card too! Thanks for playing along at My Craft Spot!

Jessica said...

Wow, super cute cards. I really like the postage stamp shaped card and the sentiments are adorable!

Hi Cely -- I just LOVE this adorable Melon card and the papers you picked are PERFECT! I love seeing all the awesome things that you create with your Cricut and it always makes me more and more inspired to make something new with mine.

I think it's so cute that you have the Pink Cuttlebug and I have the Pink Expression. I do admit, that I was very partial to get that one, because part of the proceeds went to Cancer Awareness and my Mom and one of my best friends are both breast cancer survivors.

I am going to print out a copy of your card to keep it and remember what carts you used! Thanks for sharing!!


PS: I am one of the Beta Testers for the new Cricut Craftroom program and it's been fun to play with, the only problem is that there is a BUG right now and I cant' CUT with it, but I do HOPE it will be fixed soon and available for everyone!

Mad Crafter said...
