Relax

Happy Wednesday!
Thank you so much to all of you who voted for me at LESSology. I am so surprised to see how many votes I got. You know sometimes you think you are talking to yourself when you do a blog.

Thank You !

 Thank You !

Today I have a card I made for the challenge over at Cricut 360. The challenge is "Relax." This is also for the challenge at Dare to be Sassy Thursday which is "Back to School." I know it looks like a stretch but tomorrow I am going to help a good friend in her first grade classroom. They are calling for 93+ temps. and the school has no air. So this is what I will be doing when I get home tomorrow night. I will be reminding myself how happy I am to be retired.
I decided to give my CRI-Kits a try. I have them over a year and used them once. They really are fun. I just never think to use them. You can't see it in the picture so here is a close up.
Can you see it? It is a very light green. I think I should have used a darker color.
The cartridge I used was Wall Decor and More.
Here is the card.

The image was the free image last week from Sassy Studio Designs. I thought that image just screamed "Relax."  I printed her out on white and two different designer paper. She also made me think of the 70's so I used the Perfectly Paisley CB folder on the bottom layer. 

Happy frist day back to all the teachers out there.
Thanks for stopping,
