Hi friends!  I hope you're having a great day!  We are doing pretty good other than the fact that the kids woke me up at 7am even though Brady doesn't go to school until lunch time.  Grrrr!  Other that being tired, we are fine though.

Today's card comes from my friend/MTE team mate Wida.  Wida had an idea call Casadia.  Basically, it's a series of cards being made based on the card posted before it, creating a card train of sorts.
It started with THIS CARD from Laura 

which inspired THIS CARD from Jen 

that inspired THIS CARD from Wida 

which inspired THIS CARD from Shirley-bee 

which inspired THIS CARD by Amy T 

which inspired THIS CARD from Lorena:

Now, this is where my card comes in.  ;)  I was inspired by Lorena's card.  I pulled the general sketch ie image, something surrounding the image, and the sentiment under the image and I used black and white baker's twine like Lorena.  But I decided to change things up a bit because that's how I roll.  The sticker and chipboard apple are from Basic Grey Oxford and the sentiment is from Paper Smooches.  I also added some buttons because my card was too plain.  I'm entering this in CASE Study challenge (to CASE another player), Moxie Fab World's Focal Point Challenge, and Paper Issues Apple for the Teacher challenge.    

Have a great day, everyone!
