In the Garden


The theme for Cute Card Thursday this week is "In the Garden". I chose this fun Penny Black image to color and matted it with some K&Co paper. I even pulled out my Coluzzle to cut an oval and all my circle punches & scalloped circle punch from SU to mat the sentiment. It is a bright and cheery card and makes me smile. :)


Here's a couple of answers to your questions and comments of the other day....

When do I craft as a homeschool mom?? Well, I usually craft in the morning, but sometimes that becomes a long morning!! I'm very blessed that my children are all teens and very independent workers at this point. I'm called upon here and there to correct work, help with Algebra, give Bible lessons and teach Spanish, but otherwise I'm fairly free to just be Mom. Which obviously includes crafting!!

Do I use Copics? Nope - I only own 3 and just can't justify the expense right now. Especially cuz I would love to get a used Mac laptop in the near future. I can't pay much, so I'm hoping maybe I'll find one at a garage sale or have one given to me. (One can pray that way, at least!!)
Someone mentioned looking forward to my CC Design peeks this week. Sorry! My term with the design team ran out at the end of April and although they sweetly asked me to stay on until December, I decided not to keep up with it. I'm not quite as "in love" with the new Glamour Girl type stamps, and Christine (from CC Designs) deserves to have a design team that can gush over the product they are using... just as I did with the cute animal stamps!!! :)
Thanks for all your sweet comments and remarks. I do read them all, and they make my day!!
