One in a melon

I've tried to keep busy this morning to try and help keep calm about John's op this afternoon - I'm not sure how much it's helped, but here's another card.

Today on 365 cards is: 'Imagine this: watermelon' -use the colors or an actual image of a watermelon on your card.

I've based the card on Sketch Saturday 52:

and also incorporated 'sparkling' for challenge 56 on Saturday's Workout and for Cute Card Thursday 62: 'bit o' bling'.

Challenge 63 on My Time to Craft is 'pink to make the boys wink!' - I think there's enough pink on this card to qualify for that.

On 365 Amy used the 'one in a melon' download image from The Cutting Cafe and this is what I've used too for my card, with K & Co Berry Sweet papers - with the glittery band on white, green and pink card from DCWV (sorry that the glitter doesn't show up as well as irl). The melon is coloured with copics.

Engagement card

Yesterday (day 88) on 365 cards the theme was: 'quite a pear' and the challenge was to make either an engagement or an anniversary card. Kristie had made her card using a download from the 'fruit' collection on The Cutting Cafe. Having seen an image from this on day 87 as well, I couldn't resist buying the download and using the pear for my card.

I'm also linking (very late) for 'C is for ...' on Alphabet Challenge Blog - my 'C is for a card coloured with copics' (I suddenly realised that I could have chosen quite a few cards for this previously, but hadn't thought about copics for the prompt).

The BG offbeat papers I've used seemed a perfect match and the pear was coloured in with copics, using the colours on challenge 15 at Copic Colour this week: R59, YG63 (had to substitute this with other greens) and C3 - so I'm also linking for that challenge:

Salt: The work of the Holy Spirit

For our Salt challenge for this coming fortnight, Kim chose 'the work of the Holy Spirit' as the topic, which, of course, is very appropriate as this coming Sunday is when we celebrate Pentecost - the outpouring of the Holy Spirit on the early church. You can read what Kim wrote here.

For my LO I've used Dream Street Simply Stated papers and stickers, part of a Bubbly Funk kit bought a while ago. The main background is Dear Diary and the journaling shape has been cut from Grapevine gossip overlayed with Elegant Expressions printed with the worship song.

The dove was cut from a K & Co Brenda Walton Swirl Embossed vellum.

Sorry, photos are a bit blurry, but you can read better if you click for larger image:

Please take a moment to have a look at the Salt
blog and see the lovely crafting of the rest of the team - and we would love you to leave a comment and perhaps join in with a link to your creation.
