Watermelon Patch



Hey there! I can't believe it's Monday already. I wanted to play with Karen G's Sweet Sunday Sketch and found this totally FORGOTTEN Josephine stamp that has never seen ink....why?...I have no idea why I've never inked it because I love it! I think I got it from Michelle at Stamper's Dream....umm....last summer?? Yeah, something like that. Anyway, since it's a forgotten stamp, I'm going to also enter the card into Jessie's Forgotten Stamp Friday Challenge. Very cool idea for a challenge, I might add, Jessie. :)



The main matted image is up on foam tape and I added some Stickles to the watermelon slice, hat band, and knife.

Have an awesome afternoon!

Denise, it is a cool challenge, I have many a neglected stamp that has yet to see ink. Adore your card and I have just looked back over your previous posts and seen even more creative designs.
