A melon thanks...


It took a good chunk out of my day yesterday but I was super productive and got a lot of what I most needed to take care of crossed off my to-do list. Yeah me! I even made time to stop at the car wash while I was out and about because poor W3 was looking a bit grimy. I'm happy to report that she's nice and shiny once again, LOL! 
So that means, besides the usual chores around the house I'm free to play today. I really want to color and I am also going to clean and purge the crafty room. I promised to give my neighbor a bunch of unused paper since she works with kids at the local elementary school in an afters art program and they can always use supply donations. Talk about a win/win... much needed space and organization for me, pretty papers for the kiddos. ;)

Alrighty, onto my card for the day... it's review preview time over on the CC Designs blog once again and I inked up the new Swiss Pixie Watermelon Abigail. I knew that I had this ooooold watermelon paper in my stash and I had to pair it up with Abigail. I can't even tell you how many years this paper has been sitting and waiting for some love, so it was great to finally get it on a card. I like to think that it was just waiting for this sweet as can be stamp to come along. :)

Well that's all I got folks. There are loads more cute cards featuring the July release over on the CC Designs blog so check that out. And I'll see ya manana!
