I've been thinking a lot recently about how much easier it is to have a store! Since I have had the pleasure of owning 2 (one in Alaska and one here in Port Huron) I definitely can remember what it felt like to jump out of bed in the morning and realize I had "x" amount of time to galvanize the kids, myself, lunches, showers, assignments, rides to school, etc. to accomplish before I could unlock "forget-me-not Paper Arts" back door.  Now...especially since it is summer...I strolled down here with a cup of coffee before 8am.  (not that galvanized!)  My one son doesn't live in the house and my other one is snoring gently (pretty sure) upstairs.

You'd think working from home would be easier!  But a store leaves you no choices but to get your job done!  Go to work, panic, sweat, freak, race home, panic, sweat, freak, run back to the store for classes, panic, sweat, freak...you get the idea.

I believe I sauntered this morning....I'm even typing s..l..o..w.....

CityScapes CLA378 - Card 2



I've had so much fun with my new Die-namics Solid Skyline by
My Favorite Stamps or www.mftstamps.com!

After finishing the card I cut right into it along the grassline and up
the side of the tree so that I could put the city die in front of the sky but behind the grass.  Having a piece of the tree behind some tree branches helped to complete the illusion.
