My next card is for April is Autism Awareness Month.

April 17th is “Blah Blah Blah” Day. Now, with “blah blah blah” day reminds me of my grandfather would say would Gram would get on the phone all he could hear her say is “blah blah blah”.
From My Kitchen Cricut Cartridge for phone
Make the Cut to cut the 7-inch circle for my rocker card
Make the Cut to cut the doily which was 6-inch
Paper for bottom layer of circle is From My Crafts as it reminded me of an older type oilcloth tablecloth and then with the lace cover
