I am attempting to maintain a blog filled with random bits from my life and family as well as my adventures in crafting.

Thanks A Melon

Cricut Just Because Cards Sweet Treats Cartridge
I was excited to make a tag this week for Paper Playtime's challenge, I don't make too many and I will be able to use this to give to some friends of ours for a BBQ they are hosting at the end of the month.  I like how there is plenty of room on the back to write a little note.  I think it would be cute to present this with a actual watermelon when we show up.  I used Just Because Cards for the slice of melon and stencil, and Sweet Treats for the tag and topper.  I used some paper from My Mind's Eye Lost & Found 6x6 pack and inked around all the edges with Tim Holtz Tea Dye Distress ink.  I am also entering this into Craftin' Desert Diva's challenge of "Summer" and a challenge blog that I just found (don't know why it has taken me this long to find) Hiding In My Craft Room; the challenge there is "Red and Green".  Thanks A Melon for stoppin' by!
