Anyway..... I was going through my email and found a "1 hour challenge" at SNR and thought sure, why not! I'll play along. Even though the challenge started 45 minutes ago. To quote Mr Incredible, "Yeah, I've got time."
Sadly I missed the deadline by 8 minutes but I am still pretty happy with the results. My whole cricut machine and paraphernalia was all put away (preparing for house guests) so I just had to use what ever was out on my craft table.
I've been wanting to do something with this cute watermelon ribbon since i snatched it from the $1 bin. (Today is the day!) The watermelon was traced using a bolt of ribbon then cut in half. Red layer (yes, I know it looks pink but it's really red) was created the same way but then trimmed down to fit inside the green. Black Sharpie was used to create the seeds and a white gel pen to highlight them and to doodle a line around the red layer of the watermelon.
I used a silver Sharpie to write "summer time" over and over around the border of the green mat. A black pen to write "thinking of you" on the tag.
It's not the best card I've ever made but sometimes I just have to prove to myself that I can create something fun in a short period of time.
