Sweet Thought s of You

The sketch this week from Our Creative Corner:
 
For my card I dug into my stash of floss that never gets used.  Although I like the look, it is not really for me - takes to long - I'm a finish it quick kind of gal otherwise I lose interest -LOL!  The paper is from Cosmo Cricket (Garden Variety).  I cut the watermelon with my Doodlecharms cartridge (Cricut).
  
The letter stickers are from Jillibean soup and Adornit.


The sketch this week from Clean and Simple:
 
The color challenge from Just Add Ink:




 Which is very similar to the Color Throwdown this week:



During my cleaning I found this My Little Shoebox paper and the colors were perfect.  So I fussy cut the houses and clouds, stamped a sentiment and voila  a definite CAS card for me - no sewing, no foam squares, no buttons, nothing!  The sentiment is from Close to My Heart.

Both cards are darling. The watermelon feels like a county fair to me. Do you remember the old wooden CTMH watermelon stamp that looked just like that watermelon? Or was that before your time? It brought back 'sweet' memories for me!
