Watermelon Crawl

Welcome to The Watermelon Crawl Blog Hop! Who doesn’t like to bite into a red, ripe, juicy watermelon on a hot summer day? Yum!!!! If you drive down South, you can find people selling them on the side of the road, out of their pick-up trucks. I think these are the best, because they come right out of the garden. You will always find a cute watermelon cut out at a baby shower or wedding shower, we eat them on the 4th of July, and we make sherbet and wine. You will find them in our kitchens; on our walls, curtains and cookie jars. And they are so darn fun to craft with. Today we have some very talented women that want to share their watermelon crafts with you. So come do the Watermelon Crawl with us!

If you arrived from Tina's blog, then you are on the right path!

For my project I used a free Watermelon svg that I downloaded from the Lady Wolf blog. If you haven't checked out her blog, head on over, she has lots of great svgs! I apologize for the terrible picture. I left town and forgot to take a good picture before leaving....


In order to make the svg into a card I took the bottom layer, duplicated it, flipped it, and welded it! It's a quick and easy way to make a great shaped card. For the inside of the card I will use the sentiment, "WATER you up to my one in a MELON friend?"

I hope that you enjoyed seeing all the juicy and refreshing projects that were in our hop today!

But remember… to be eligible for the candy you must follow ALL the giveaway rules above.
Thanks for hopping with us and remember…
Have fun y’all, do the watermelon crawl!
