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.

You know I love your pencil card but the bird cage and butterfly is especially elegant and so pretty! Glad your mom is doing better! You're such a good daughter to take her into your home!

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?
