Big Leafy Corner and a Sour Melon


I have finished my entry for the Make The Cut (MTC) Fall Swap and I didn't procrastinate one bit. LOL!

Do you want a peek? Good. Here it is:

I designed it to be a big corner for an A2 card. I haven't finished the card yet but I can tell you this file cut like a dream.

As for the rest of our long week-end, it was great. I designed and cut a few files. We went to the beach, ran a few errands and even picked up a sour melon at our favorite farmers market.

My hubby likes to try strange new things. He really enjoys getting the kids to try them too. So, it was his idea to buy the sour melon. He asked the lady at the market how to eat it. She just shrugged her shoulders.

So, he brought the melon home, washed it and cut it up. Right after that, I heard, "YUCK! It tastes like a spider web!"

I laughed and asked him just how he knew what a spider web tastes like. LOL! I then got online to research the sour melon for myself. It turns out, it's not really a fruit but more like a bitter vegetable. We won't be buying any more sour melons, but hey, it was worth a try.

I hope you had a great week-end. What kind of fun did you have over the long week-end?

Happy Creative Time!
