Digi Haven's Picnic

Down this way we actually call watermelon Chunk!  I know, kinda weird but that's really what we call it.  No idea why we call it that but I DO love my Chunk!  Even better is to get into a good seed spitting contest with someone while eating the tasty stuff - outside of course!  LOL!  Our theme for this challenge is "We're having a picnic".  At this age, my idea of a picnic would probably be driving through "take out" somewhere, throwing it in a basket, and then of course grabbing a big juicy "Chunk" too!

Isn't she a cutie!  She's from My Grafico who is the sponsor of our brand new challenge starting today at Digi Haven.  Summertime is here, the watermelon is abundant, and it's a good time to go on a picnic. Come on over and join the challenge for your chance to win a great prize package from My Grafico!  Also check out all the wonderful inspiration from the DT this time.  Fantastic creations to say the least!

Thanks for stopping by........and be sure and check out the Digi Haven challenge!

Now you have me craving ice cold watermelon in the middle of the night! Precious card, Lynn!

She is adorable but I think I'd put my money on you for the spitting contest. LOL. I just adore this card with the red and checker board papers and that flower. Terrific sentiment. I wish that sentiment could go to everyone in the world. Have a wonderful day. Lynn.

This is so adorable! Love the colours! I love Chunk too - but we call it watermelon. We always buy seedless though so no seed spitting here!

Awww.. how cute! Love the sweet image and that little dotted bow. The checked paper reminds me of a picnic blanket or table cloth.

This card is adorable Lynn! I love that cute bear eating "chunk"! lol The picnic paper is perfect and reminds me of a picnic. I just had me a huge piece of "chunk" last night-oh I so love watermelon!!!

Oh! I can't wait for my first slice of CHUNK (I have NEVER heard that one!) I love learning colloquialisms! We just call it watermelon! I always look forward to my first ~ chunk ~ and my first corn on the cob! Around here corn-on-the-cob can be the entire meal. Adorable card!!! Thanks for the Texan-Lesson!

I have never heard of watermelon referred to as chunk. I do not like watermelon- I know, I know....everyone but me loves it- I do not eat any melon...... But I have seen seed spitting contests- grew up with 4 brothers! Dear me- this card is just darling- LOVE the darling layout, the piercing and the image is adorable!

Melissa said...

Well, I don't know what to say, Lynn! I just realized I hadn't visited your blog is...ages!!! Yikes! I had to come see what you've been up to and found this CUTE card! :)
We often times grab a take out pizza and take it to a park for a picnic with the kids! So easy!!! :)

Oh, this is just too adorable, Lynn! Love the gingham paper and the single daisy. Fab card. I've never heard watermelon called "chunk" but why not? I've cut a lot of it into chunks when making a fruit salad. :-D
