CFC #3 and CAS at The Kraft Journal *edited

Edited to add the Clean and Simple Challenge that Beth so sweetly recommended me to over at The Kraft Journal


remember me?

I used to blog?

Before I got so busy getting all of the kids out school for Summer that I don't think I have even taken a breath in the last week...

much less gotten any ink on my fingers?

Dinky's done with pre-k.

I cried.

I've even given thought to having another little one...

then I realized I was possibly overreacting and may be in need of medication if thoughts like that continue.

Robert and Haley are out this week...

Hunter next...

then we're on Summer vacation!

You know...

that time of the year when kids are out of school...

and Mom's are out of their minds!

But going crazy has honestly never been so much fun and I love it!


so I didn't get a card done for last week's CASual Friday challenge...

and I wanted to!


made sure I got one done for this week's challenge which is...


Got my new PTI goodies Friday...

sometimes my mailman is my favorite man...

and even though I was going to wait till Summer to break out these new little Fruit Fusions...

I have plans for them...

decided to go ahead and give this one a go for this challenge...

Do you see the bling?

Look again...


close up...

I know...

blink and you miss it!

Very subtle.

But thought that to-die-for watermelon needed some seeds...

so I gave it some little seed pearl bling.

Hope it still qualifies!

The Details:
All Supplies PTI unless noted
Cardstock: Kraft, Berry Sorbet, Stamper's Select
Stamp: Fruit Fusion: Watermelon
