Another 2 Card Saturday...


Card #1 inspired by 3 challenges...

Freshly Made Sketches // #FMS621 ...A sketch challenge!!  This sketch was perfect for showcasing my new Watercolor Melon set from Stampin Up.  A trio of sliced watermelon makes for a sweet take on this sketch.

Simply Clean & Simple // FEB2024 ...A clean and simple challenge!!  Pink is the theme for this month.  Strawberry Slush is a fun shade of pink and worked perfectly for these slices of melon.  After uploading my photo it looks more red than real life it is so very pink!!

Never Before Used Schtuff // #NBUS59 ...A "never been used" challenge!!  I got this new stamp set in the mail several weeks ago and inked it up for the first time today.

UPDATE: Design team member, Kim, from Freshly Made Sketches gave the sweetest shout out on my card!!  Here is what she had to say...Kim’s Choice: The three slices of watermelon that Deb created for the sketch are truly luscious! LOVE the colors and the soft greenery behind them.

Card #2 inspired by 3 challenges...

FarmQuest Challenges // #FQCB45 ...A country living challenge!!  The theme for this current challenge is porch furniture!!  Who doesn't love an adirondack chair on their porch!?!

Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge // #AHSC562 ...A sketch challenge!!  I loved the stripes and had the perfect piece of designer papers for this was left over from a pack of 12 x 12 DPS from back in my scrapbooking days!!

Made My Monday // #MMM218 ...A technique challenge!!  Use patterned paper!!  I have so much patterned paper in my stash...last year I actually put myself on a buying freeze for pattened papers!! LOL

  1. I think I'm in love with the watercolor watermelon! So pretty!! Thanks for playing along with us at FMS this week.

  2. Both cards are fantastic, DJ!!! First of all, I'm grateful for your continued participation at FarmQuest and love the Adirondack chair! The striped paper is your faux rug! :) Great idea for the current FQCB theme! And if you'd like, the watermelon card would be a wonderful entry at the 2nd competition of FarmQuest HomeStyle Kitchen challenges blog. It has an anything food goes theme. I hope you and your crafting friends will check that out. Gratefully, Becca
