and then...

it was Thursday....

Can you believe how fast the week is going by?  I just can't believe that school has started and I am home (relatively) alone...

To celebrate; I used  Lazy Days of Summer from Cowgirl Up and the theme from the Crafty Ho's Challenge (Peace)~ my card depicts the peace a mother feels when school starts and she can take a day for herself....

The paper was all leftovers, and I traced a chipboard cloud I had to make mine out of place white CS.  I added some chunky sparkles and used foam squares to give it the card dimension.  The sentiment "aaaahhh" was stamped with some white paint....it even seems to be tapering off as if you were saying it ;-)


I hope you have all been making your Christmas cards for the drive over at Cowgirl Up!  We start collecting on Sunday ~ the details will be on the challenge blog.

Thanks for stopping by!
Huggz,
April
