Up first is Melanie Muenchinger's newest set called Basket Additions 3. Ive been having alot of fun with this set! For my card today, I decided to use a template that Melanie has for a pop up desk and a teacher card:



For the front I used the cute teacher stuffs...this is my daughter's first year of teaching so Ive basically had alot of teacher stuff on my brain, lol! And now, here is the inside of the card:



I used the template of Melanie's to the little desk...here is the link to the template page at Melanie's site:

Desk Template

I love how this turned out! So did my daughter, she took it with her to share with the other kindergarten teacher, lol!

Ok, up next is Theresa Momber's Newest set called Country Roads...and yes, I have had the John Denver song in my head every since I started playing with this set, lol! Here is what I did for today:



I decided to use the old truck and mailboxes...I see alot of this around here, lol! I painted the truck red because hubby said to, I think he wants to paint his old ford red is why he said to do it, lol!

Ok, ready for more awesome inspiration from my fellow DT? Here are the links below:



Be sure and stop back by tomorrow for another day of awesome inspiration for you! And don't forget to comment along the way! :D Thanks for stopping by and hope you are having a wonderfully creative day!
