framed coneflower

I have been thinking of having someone come in and help me with organizing/cleaning our house. We live in a 1400 sq. foot house and with 3 kids, all their stuff and all our stuff it is getting  quite crowded! Honestly there are days that I know I pick up/put away the same toy 10 times! It can drive someone mad! I know I probably will never have someone really come in and help, but it sure would be nice! Knowing me, I would drive myself mad cleaning and putting things up so the person did not think "My god these people are pigs", then there would be nothing left for her to do! LOL! Really I think I need someone to help me train my boys to pick up and put stuff away, that sounds like it would end up being much more useful in the end!

The card today is for the Penny Black Blog challenge using a frame. The floral image is a favorite of mine, is colored with the big brush markers from Faber-Castell. The Thank you background stamp was stamped over the flower and then I distressed the panel with antique linen. The frame was cut out using a spellbinder die. Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Tanya, that is exactly what my mom used to do. . .clean before the cleaning lady came to clean! Ha! :) Love your fab card! That frame looks so beautiful surrounding your pretty flower!

  2. That flower is beautifully set against the frame, I so love it!! I hear you about the cleaning thing! Somedays I, too, will clean more than once and then other days, I just give up and clean only once after everyone is in bed! :)
