Watermelon ChompSweet Sketch 56
Sweet Sketch Wednesday
Sponsor: Bugaboo Stamps

Isn't this the most adorable watermelon ant you have ever seen? I used my oval nesti and SU Crystal Effects. I wished I had purchased the ant brads at the Scrapbook USA show last Spring when I went with Arlana and Nancy! I looked all over Tacoma for black ants to use where I have the three brads but I finally gave up. Then I thought black ant stickers would have worked. But no luck! Hope you enjoy my summer picnic card!

This week our sponsor is Bugaboo Stamps. They are offering a very sweet prize of 7 digis valued at $21. Boy, you could have a lot of fun choosing from Jodie's awesome collection! Go ahead...look around and see all the fun digis you can't do without!

I do want to say goodbye to a few of our SSW DT members,

Kym, Lisa and Terry!

You will be greatly missed!


  1. Great card Judi! Really love the shine and the brads work fine for me! Great image too ain't it! Wish there were more craft shows here, there's only one and that's in October which feels like YEARS away instead of months. :-D

  2. Hi Judi I love your card it's really cute. It was one of the images I was considering. Great minds think a like you were looking for Ants and I was in the garden cutting up wood, I was going to use rounds of wood instead of the flowers with the ladybugs on, but looked a little heavy on the card. If I had a skill saw I could have cut them thinner. Maybe next time.
    Take care Kathie.

  3. Judi, this is just too adorable! Love how you add the shine to the little critter and his yummy watermelon. Perfect paper for a sweet card.

  4. Good morning Judi! Yep, you are right - that IS the most adorable watermelon eating ant! Your paper is perfect and I love the pink and green together - delish!

  9. Judi, what a fantastic card and look how you made the ant's eyes and antennae pop with the crystal effects! I love that stuff! I always enjoy seeing your cards because you know how to add extra bounce to the card, bringing it alive and I have always learned by watching your fab creations! That watermelon looks especially edible - outstanding coloring! Thanks for the love you left - it will be empty not being on the team. I do so envy you having your sisters crafting with you; one of my biggest joys is seeing and hearing the three of you getting together and sticking together! It always warms my heart! But I'll certainly be by checking your blog for all the fun things you do! :)

  11. Hello Judi, I love this aunt image. Your aunts would have been adorable. But your card is cute just the way it is. I love how you layered the ovals and added the cyrstal effects to the eyes.
