Melon Pockets

I have to admit, I’m on a Kraft kick lately. For the longest time, I really just couldn’t see what all the excitement was about with Kraft CS. Now, I am hooked. There are so many times it is the perfect base for a card!

I finally decided to break out some of those new SU In-Colors. When I ordered my IC’s I only ordered re-inkers with the intention of ordering the pads later. Then there were issued with the Bermuda Bay pads, so I held off. Well, here we are months later, and I still haven’t ordered my ink pads. So, I made my own ink pad for tonight, using a reinker on a baby wipe and it worked well.

I used Melon Mambo ink and cs with Razzleberry Lemonade DP. My button was part of a gift and I’m not sure what company it’s from (PTI maybe?), but it was the PERFECT match. I don't usually use buttons because I think I am button challenged, but I knew without a doubt that I needed a button on this card. I used SU’s Pocket Silhouettes and my sentiment is from Upsy Daisy.

As an aside, for all of you who took the time to comment on Andrew’s card here, you have created a MONSTER! A true and total monster! LOL! All these wonderful comments have gone straight to his head. Now I fear he may try to take over my craft area, and we know that I can’t let that happen!

Seriously, Andrew thanks each and every one of you for your kind, wonderful words! He is talking about another mom/son card combo soon.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a wonderful and blessed day!

Great card - I think that color combo works perfectly! I, too, am 'button challenged', but you've rocked this wee button =)
Can't wait for your next duel!

Really nice! I like the different color combo. I always seem to see this set in earth colors, so it's a nice change.

Great colour combo....I think I quite like the Kraft look too. I recently acquired a small sample of the American in colours...I loooove that pink one...so bright and cheerful.

THe buttons...I reckon I am button challenged too...not that you would know it ...I have the hugest container full....just in case!
