This turned out to be a very thought provoking Challenge for me. What really is my "greener grass"? I own a tiny house that gives me shelter when so many are homeless; and an old car which is reliable enough to to get me to a part time job that I managed to hold onto through the pandemic. The income though meager, pays for my food & utilities each month so no welfare lines for me. I have a large loving family but they all live FAR away, so yeah! for electronics (computers, smart phones, etc) that keep us part of each others lives.
So I asked myself again "What REALLY is my "Greener Grass" ? It's ALL of YOU here at SCS. This online community has been the continuing "normal" for me in this very brown year of pandemic! Since I live alone, stay at home mandates and social distancing were more like solitary confinement in a prison. So this is a thank you to each and every one of you for being part of my normal greener grass - with special kudos to all the hostesses that continued to give us daily challenges to stimulate both our minds and creativity. My life is richer for being part of Splitcoaststampers!
Just realized I forgot to add my glitter gumdrops before taking the photo and it's too late in the day to retake it now . . . . .

Yes. In spite of all the tech issues, it's the people who made SCS a special place over the last year and make it worth hanging in till it to gets back to normal. I was going to say you did some great masking - you did some amazing fussy-cutting! What a great card for the challenge.
