365 Cards - Cutting Cafe Week - The "Eyes" Have It

The challenge for today at 365 Cards is to use the word "eye" on your card. For the DT, we were also to use The Cutting Cafe image of the apple. Here is my card.

Since I am a homeschool mom, I never get to make teacher cards, so this was kind of fun. I guess now I have to mail it to myself!

I used some scraps of paper from my "school" file, plus a wooden embellie that I got at Michael's a long time ago. I colored the apple image with chalk ink pads (messy and not precise, but gives a softer look than markers or pencils) and then I cut it out and mounted it onto a second image (with the saying) using foam tape.

"I homeschool my kids...so I'm not talking to myself, I'm having a parent/teacher conference!"
