What a crazy way to start May!!!

I'm BACK!! Sorry I haven't posted anything for awhile, these past couple weeks have been so incredibly busy. It was the end of the month (April) and I was so behind at work that I was working 14 + hours a day and I think that it took me this long to finally recover and not just hop into bed as soon as I got home. The other thing is that on my free weekend, my husband graduated with his Associate and we were mostly travelling. It was great to see him graduate! Is it me, or does it seem that somehow they always manage to find the most incredibly boring person to speak? :)
SO...... I have to tell you all about my little "adventure" I had last week. Where I live, there was a warehouse that sold scrapbooking things online. The owner decided that she wanted to change her business to selling shoes, so she decided to get rid of her scrapbooking stuff. Only a handful of people were actually told about this sale, and luckily my boss was one of those people. Now this wasn't any ol' sale..... this was the deal..... $25 for anything you can fit in your car. Just in case you didn't get that....$25 FOR ANYTHING YOU CAN FIT IN YOUR CAR!!!! :) It was like a dream, too good to be true..... but it was true and I have a room full of paper and a hurt back to prove it ! :) IT WAS GREAT!!
I also was reading June's Creating Keepsakes and I was inspired to make this card. One of my favorite parts of Summer is picnic's and you can't have picnic's without watermelon. This was a simple card, but it turned out really cute. It was a good card to get back into the stamping groove.

Thank you for the comments of concern when I went MIA! I'm here and ready to do some major card making.

Happy Stamping!
