Watermelon For All ~ Tilda

I love watermelons, and totally enjoy them all year long. Although they do get expensive in the out of season time.

History notes:
Watermelons are thought to be native of the Kalahari desert in Africa, due to David Livingstone describing them as "abundant" in that region.

According to online sources, watermelons have been introduced to North America in 1500, and Indians were found cultivating them by French explorers in the Mississippi valley.

The fruit was introduced in Massachussetts in 1629, with significant help from African slaves.

Tilda is peeking down at the watermelon seeds she just planted.

Colored with Copic pens, Used my Copic air brush on the greeting, I used a watermelon stamp by Hero Arts and colored it and used a clear glaze over the melon to make it appear shiny and sweet.
Pearls, Papers and Ribbon from my stash.

I am entering this card into these challenges:

Make It Monday ~ Card You Have Made

Simply Magnolia ~ Pearls And Lace

Tilda's Town ~ Anything Goes

Have a grand and glorious week.

This Friday is my procedure to see the cancer area in my rectum. They will use a camera to locate and mark the area. From this procedure they will then schedule a surgery date. Do pray I can be cancer free after the surgery.
Many thanks for your prayerful kindness and friendship.

I am feeling well and love designing Tilda cards, hugs to all
Blessings Doreen
