Hey peeps!  Hopping in quickly for a card for two challenges!  The Try Stampin’ on Tuesday sketch:

and the Make It Monday challenge from The Kraft Journal, which is layers!  I have a few layers here…not tons, but hopefully enough to qualify:

LeAnne Pugliese Crafty Secrets Garden Girls
My sweet SIL asked me to make two birthday cards for her aunts, so I used the same computer-generated sentiment as yesterday’s card to make today’s!  I really like that font!  I turned the sketch so that I could use the sentiment on one of the banners, and used a pretty CS image for the circular panel.  Pretty easy!  My SIL doesn’t like buttons so I used a watering can image instead!  I also used my new Baby Lock to sew around the edge!  TFL!

I am not sure what other kids do, but just give Cassidy a couple of towels, her favorite dolls and the driveway (she has a patio and a porch—but she likes the drive!), and she is completely happy:

Here she is telling me to be quiet – sssshhhh----because her babies are sleeping!

Enjoy your day!
