I paced myself to participate in all of the fun challenges at The Craft's Meow.

This is the last one for me and there is a day to spare.

*The Craft's Meow Tweet of You chain,The Craft's Meow Fruity for You,Ranger Tim Holtz distress ink (mustard seed,peeled paint,broken china),Memento ink bamboo leaves,Georgia Pacific white*

All of the stamp images used here are The Craft's Meow. 

The square image is my Tim Holtz ink pad applied directly to the cardstock.

As I was creating this card, memories of FRUITY events made me smile:

~driving behind a tiny car with a REAL miniature pony in the back seat 

~being asked by a group of teens at a dollar store to "mime a baseball game" with them so they could tape it on video to fulfill their church's scavenger hunt list of duties.

 I was the batter.

I hit a home-run. ;)

~having my apt searched by the authorities (in Germany)for a strange frequency that was messing up the cellphone usage in my area. 

It was my baby video monitor (American).

They agreed not to take me to court if I shut it off immediately.

I did.

I mailed it to my sister.

scawwwwwy stuff there!

Who knew?!

When I informed my husband, who was deployed at the time, of the search and what caused it...

his reply was, "I can't take you anywhere, can I."

I get that a lot.;)



It happens near me, around me and many times...

 I'm it.

 You still have time to link up your creations and join the party too!
