Cupcake Inspirations Challenge #406


Hello....hope you are enjoying your weekend. I have not been spending a lot of time at my computer lately, the school year is winding to a close, 15 more school days until I retire! Lots of work to still do in cleaning and packing up my classroom. I am beyond excited to spend my days at home being dolly domestic and as crafty as I want to be. My to do list is growing each day, so many things I want to do and can't wait. My hubby is going to make a little tropical spot in the backyard, small plastic pool to soak my feet, umbrella so keep me cool and I can read all day long if I like!

On to my sweet card, it is for the new challenge at Cupcake Inspirations #406. You are going to love the fabulous color palette, so perfect for a Mother's Day card. I hope you will find the time to play along with us this week. Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by, enjoy your day!

  1. Adorable Kim! Your own little tropical spot, how wonderful! I expect that after a while, you will be the same as the rest of us who have retired and wonder how you ever found time to go to work. We seem to fill our time to the brim! Have a wonderful Sunday! Luv & Hugs. Hazel xx

  15. Applauding your decision to retire and enjoy much-deserved time doing whatever you please, including spending oodles of time in the tropical paradise your husband is designing for you (what a sweetie he is!). Reading and relaxing: a great start! Your card is adorable! Fabulous colouring on the image; I need to have a green thumb to grow plants like this cutie! And those green shoes? Oh my...fantastic!
