Your smile always brightens my day card made using the NEW Pop Up Village cartridge.

Hello, friends!

So sorry I did not post yesterday! I am just swamped with stuff to do at the moment and did not have time. Seriously, I think I am loosing my mind. School is starting to get crazy and my son is having behavioral issues at school. Why can't he just go to school and behave like the other kids!?! For a 1st grader, he has amazing resolve.

Anyway, today I have a card that I made using the NEW Pop Up Village cartridge. It is a circle exclusive, but keep your eyes out for it on eBay. Someone is bound to sell it. Alternatively, you could join the circle. If you are Cricut crazy you probably belong in the circle anyway!

I used Bo Bunny paper and Papertrey Ink ribbon.
I cut the pastoral scene out at 2 1/2"
This is one of Emma's stamps called 'Turn That Frown Upside Down'

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I look forward to seeing you all here tomorrow!

Have a tremendous Tuesday!

Gorgeous card!!! :) And I can't get enough of Emma's stamps (My Creative Time)!!!!!!!!

I don't know how you do it all! (School (& work) was all-consuming for me-can't imagine having time for family & crafting, too!) Hopefully, your son will start making it easier for you! ;)
