Life is a balancing act! + freebie

PAPER CUPCAKES is having a challenge and offered this adorable "ant with cupcakes" image. My DH thought of the sentiment.  We have a lot of projects going on at our house right now and I guess this is what came to mind....haha  (UPDATE:  I missed the deadline which was 1200 midnight...so sad!)
Size: A2
Card: 3D Birthday Cards (Svgcuts.com)
Cupcake punch (bottom): EK
MS Punch
Cherries: $1 punch
rhinestones, glitter, copic markers
My svg freebie for today is a rake.  Someone was asking for one, so I thought, make one myself to help others.  However, Svgcuts.com has Autumn Elements collection for just a few dollars and they have a lot of other wonderful elements you can use in this collection for anytime during the year.

Hope you don't get blisters from this when raking the leaves...haha!

    Thanks for the rake. I am so sorry about your kitchen. WATER is almost always the problem. Wish I could loan you my son and his construction company. I just said "OH, my," when I saw your photos. Thinking about you. mj
