Hi Everyone! I hope that you are enjoying this hop as much as I am.
For today's project I made an A7 card (5 X 7).
I love my children with all my heart, but I have to admit, the closer we get to the first day of school the bigger my smile gets. LOL I'll be the parent singing, (It's the most wonderful time of the year.) and dancing down the street as the bus drives away. (Only Kidding)
If you just happened upon my blog, you'll want to start at the beginning. I wouldn't want you to miss out on any of the great inspiration these ladies have worked so hard to share with you.

So now back to my card.
I also used the Everyday Paper Doll Cricut Cartridge (Mom and grass) and also the Create A Critter Cricut Cartridge (clouds). Mom was cut at 2.5 inches and all her layers, the grass was cut at .35 inches and the clouds were cut at 1.25, .75, and .50 inches.
I inked around the edges of the clouds. Used a Sakura Gelly Roll Pen for faux stitching and accents. Peachy Keen Stamps PK-490 Everyday Character Face Stamps.
Stamp-In Up - Old Olive, Soft Suede, Blushing Bride and Bashful Blue Card Stock along with dimensionals.
Papertrey Ink - White and Blueberry Swirl Card Stock
Joann's - Bazzill - Blackberry Swirl
The Paper Company (Value Pack) - Brights (Peach and Yellow)
Pop Dots and Glossy Accents
The road and the grass on the right hand side were cut free hand. My oldest daughter Danée had a lot of great ideas to help me with this card. She is so talented and artistic. I'm real proud of her.
