Your watermelon card is so cute and I really love the curvy border and beautiful colors on it. I like the beautiful verse and it reminds me of a church hymm that is dear to my heart. Great coloring of the sandcastle and the water.

Like both your cards, but love the Watermelon the best. It makes me remember when I was about 8 yrs old (that is like in 1967)and my Dad would take us into town (a big deal going into town as we lived out in the boonies)and get ice cold slices for a nickle. I think a whole uncut melon at that time, was about about $.75 or $1.00. Boy have things changed. Thank you for the memory that your card brought me.
