Simply Challenged Betty Challenge

Hello! I hope everyone had a great weekend. Mine was pretty great, I spent some time canning, which I love to do. I made two batches of blueberry jam and two batches of an orange cranberry spread. This is the first year that I have done any canning since Kip and I got married and I forgot how much I loved doing it. Our kitchen is on the very small side which is kind of limiting, but I decided I was going to make it work somehow this year.

Now on to my card! I decided to play along with the challenge on the Simply Challenged blog. We were challenged by Betty herself to make a project using one of the Betty images. I love this image, maybe because it reminds me of my morning face and clutching a mug of coffee. I wish I looked that good in the mornings though!! I used Morning Betty from Simply Betty Stamps, image was colored with Copics, paper is Basic Gray and buttons are American Crafts.

Thanks for dropping by today!

I am so envious, you can jam :) My mom always would make strawberry jam and homemade yogurt, that sure did not rub off on me. Love your card makes me smile and of course, wish I looked that good in the morning.
