Welcome to the Picnic Blog Hop. You should have come from My Cricut Craft Room.


Erica challenged us to make something Picnic related. So when I think of picnics, I think of watermelon. So I pulled out my trusty Gypsy and went to work.  I found this adorable watermelon and saying on the Simply Charmed Cartridge.  Hope you like it.!
Using Kaiser Crafts 'Cock A Doodle' small paper stack for the background of the card. (Card 5" X 10").  I cut the Watermelon at 3 inches out of various colors of green cardstock. Added some inking and some googly eyes and the mouth was done with a Black Viva Decor pen. I then added just enough Green Stickles to give it some sparkle. :)  The saying was cut from the same Kaiser Craft paper stack. Stickles and the pearl pen were used on the little face smilies.  I found some ribbon I had and added a button to finish if off.  Super easy and super cute.


Thanks for looking. Now head on over to KathyJo to see what fabulous project she has designed!!


Have a wonderful Day!
