Sweet, cold, vintage watermelon.

Deep red, ice cold watermelon is definitely on the menu today, it is going to be a scorcher!  I paper pieced this fun watermelon card using 2 sets from Lindsay's Stamp Stuff.  My all time favorite Bold Black and White  and the Strawberries and Watermelon set.  
Be sure to stop by Lindsay's Stamp Stuff Store because she is having a 3 day Birthday Sale 7/21-7/23/11 on everything in the store!  Don't miss out on your chance to pick up one of these awesome sets at a bargain price.  Be sure to stop by Lindsay's blog The Frugal Crafter  and the rest of the design team (side bar links) to see what they have today, it's sure to be awesome!
Thanks for looking.  ~Diane

  15. Hi Diane,
    You are amazing!! I love your watermelon card. Refreshing, just to look at it. And, you know how I love the black and white papers.
    I know how hot it is for you with the high humidity. I remember those days. We are triple digits here, but not as muggy.

    Have a great weekend and stay cool

  30. What a lovely card. The watermelon is just precious and makes me crave it's sweetness.

  31. One of my favorite things of summer is fresh, in season watermelon - nothing better! Your card is spot on with capturing (to me) a summer kitchen and fresh slices of watermelon to enjoy - that homey sense of family and warmth and affection. I know, all that in one card (lol) but it's true!

    So, please keep coming back to Opus Gluei and checking out our challenges.
