Teapot Tuesday and CC

 The CC today was to use the Primary colors, Blue, Yellow and RED.  The dessert was to make a school related card.  Since we have teachers in the family, and 2 Granddaughters starting High School, and one Grandson entering Middle School, someone will get this to spur them on to good things.

The pencil I cut out, sort of freehand, but don't look too closely!  The sentiment is from MFP - Poppies Poppies Poppies.  Whew!  I wish that title was shorter!

Below is my card for Teapot Tuesday.  We were to make a card relating to birds in a cage.  I had this wonderful dp, and couldn't figure out how to add a bird to it, and still have it show, so a butterfly worked better (I think someone let all the birds out of the cages!).   This card will go to a friend of a stamper who needs some cheering.
That's it for today.  Mom and I are off later today to her house.  She has her Dr. appt. for her 3 mo. check-up after a minor stroke.  She's been doing really well.  We'll be back home on Thursday, so have a great couple of days.  Hugs to you all.

  5. I love the little flower punch that you use on a lot of your cards, and you used it on the card where the butterfly is coming out of the bird cage. Can you tell us what punch that is?


Thanks for your comments. I read and enjoy them ALL!
