Cutting Cafe'!

Good morning to you! What a productive day I had yesterday! My bedroom is officially done being painted, my garden has been weeded, bills were written, laundry was done, and I even managed to get one card made! I created this card using the Cutting Cafe's All About Mom's set. I decided to use up the scraps on my desk and make a "quilt" with 'em! Papers are Melissa Frances. My stitching in the corners went a bit wonky.....hence the glittery Martha Stewart corner pieces! I bought these pretty glittery butterflies from Michaels and removed the plastic body part and added a button and stick pins instead.


It is back to school time for me and Cort today! She is so happy to go back and see all of her friends and teachers! Plus Tuesdays is a swim day for her........so added bonus!
Still no computer for me.....I tried calling the guy and he didn't answer the phone. WTF? I am sooooo aggravated! I have to retake all of my pics and upload them to my tiny computer because as you know I have nothing but time........nothing but time. (Said in my best sarcastic voice!)
Have a wonderful Tuesday!!!!
