Great job

Well, I am back again...lol. Just seem to be muddling along but not sharing much. I have been working on making some simple card fronts that are multipurpose and I am only using scraps. Will share a pic soon, as they are too much fun. My work schedule has changed and I will now be able to actually share a week end with my DH. So more time for him equates to less time in my craft room. So better get a bit more efficient.
This card is for my precious granddaughter. We recently made a trip down and attended her honors day. She is in the fourth (opps now fifth) grade and this is her first year in school. She has been home schooled up to this point so this was her first honors day experience. Jeff and I were so blessed to be able to share that with her. This is the fun card I made for her. I am pleased with the kite shaped banner! Yikes, just noticed that you can see the pop dot....(she will forgive me there is money in the card!!LOL)

I am entering this is Getting Crickys Sunday challenge

Thank you for spending your time with me.
Live the life you've imagined.
hugs, Brenda
