Another Flap Card

OK, I am officially hooked on making these flap cards!! Here's another quick one to share with you.
I incorporated these challenges:
My little slice of bliss today? While DH and DS were away today on a Cub Scout outing (they went to tour a radio station~~WBUR, Boston's NPR News Station), DD and I went to do some produce shopping at a new little produce store in our town called The Purple Plum. It is so quaint!! We picked up some tomatoes and lettuce for tonight's tacos for supper, plus some cantaloupe for breakfasts and red peppers for DD's school lunches next week. Then the two of us went out for lunch!! We capped with off with some card-making this afternoon for a fun day of togetherness. :)

Thanks for stopping by!

What a great afternoon to spend with your daughter! Has she made many cards since school began?

As always, I marvel at your ability to combine challenges. (I know, you shouldn't over-do it!) This one has the neatest mum punchez!

Your flap card is super! You're into flap cards and Marisa is into bookmarks. They're both great! Sounds as if you and your DD had a fantastic time together.
