Basket of Apples.....

Hello and Happy Tuesday Everyone! What a day I had
yesterday!! Home schooling was a little harder than I thought!
I mean it's not super bad or anything but for my first day ever!
It was a little more than I expected! The teacher told me I'll
get into a groove and everything will fit into place once we
get a schedule that we can work with. So I'm gonna be
patient and see how it goes! Needless to say, I didn't get
anytime for crafting! In fact I was busy all the way up til
about 8pm! Only because I'm a scheduler and I like to have
a list that is organized.... Soooo after class was over I started
on my own homework and made a schedule I think I
can do with my son and still make some time to do my crafting!
Or at least I hope so! LOL We shall see how today goes!
My sweet son told me that I was a great teacher!
I don't know if he was just sucking up or what! LOL
He did make a picture of him and me in the classroom so
maybe tomorrow I'll post that so you can see it! :O)
Well here's my card for today! Good thing I made this already!

 I actually designed this card a couple of weeks
ago in my design studio! I bought the paper for it
on Thursday last week! I really like how this turned out!

Card stock, ink, punches, sentiment - Stampin' Up
Designer paper - The Paper Loft (Autumn Splendor)
I use Bo Bunny Dot paper for all the cuts!
Twine - Papertry Ink
Gems - Bazill
Cartridges - George & Basic Shape (Circles) Cut @ 2 3/4", 3"
(Squares w/Rounded Corners) Cut @ 3.027 x 2.165, 3.196 x 2.332
Disney Pooh & Friends ( Apple Basket) Cut @ 2 3/4"
Art Philosophy - (Yellow/brown Border) Cut @ 1"

I'm lovin' the new Art Philosophy cartridge... When I seen the
borders on it,  I new this was a great cartridge! :o)
Thanks for all the comments, I've been reading them all!

Theresa, I really like this one a lot. Makes me sooo wish for fall and cooler temps. Even though we don't get much of a fall. These papers are terrific. If you are feeling kind of overwhelmed, I would never be able to organize enough to home school. I have enough trouble getting to craft. I have no doubt you will master it. They will probably want you to do a "handbook" for the best way to get it all done.

Beautiful Fall card!

Very cute card, I'll bet it is even cuter in person. I hope you'll have more time for crafting when you get into a routine with the schooling.

Sharon said...

Love this! Those papers are just awesome. Love the border. I bet your son is right. My guess is that you are a great teacher. When you get everything down pat, I'm betting that things will go more smoothly. You just have to get your groove on/1! :)

I really appreciate how you tell us the cuts that you use, and what size. I need all the help I can get!

Tanya said...

What a great fall card! I love the basket of apples and all the fun layers! Well...one day of school down, how many more to go? I know that you will do an awesome job and once you two get into your own little routine things will begin to flow. It will be worth all the effort...you two have a great day tomorrow!
