Materials & Tools: White Daisy, Crystal Blue, and Sweet Leaf cardstock; Twitterpated paper packet; Black ink pad; Brown Bag marker; Waltzingmouse Peace & Plenty and CTMH TLC stamp sets; Cuttlebug w/Nestabilities Classic Rectangles set.

‘Tis Monday again and a good day... so far! I hope your week is wonderful. Later …

What a cute Pear! I love it!!!!!

Your one-word answers had me laughing - I think my favorite was the place you go over and over! No kidding! I can totally relate to that one!

Laurel said...

LOVE the pear! Some of your answers made me giggle... I'm with you on the no bra thing - me neither - but the place you go to over and over- the bathroom! LOL!

Jeanne said...

I see I'm not the only one who enjoyed reading your one word responses. Your sense of humor shines through even one word at a time. LOL Thanks for the grin.

Love the beauty and simplicity of this card, too!

Sparkle said...

Very pretty! I really must paper piece more often.

Love the pear and your one word answers. If you email me your address I have two Copic markers that I bought only to find out that I already had them at home and I will put them in the mail to you. An early Christmas present. Of course you will hate me then because once you've tried a Copic nothing else will satisfy.
