Year-End Teacher Cards



Hooray! We have just finished up another successful school year. Yesterday, I sent my daughter to school with gift cards for her teachers in home made cards. Here are two of the cards I made. These were for her science and social studies teachers. I used Locker Talk for the images, Hero Arts stamps for the sentiments, and some old Christina Cole patterned paper. Her teachers were impressed with their cards. I'm not crazy about how the stamping came out. Any suggestions for a good brown ink? I think I used stuff from the dollar bin at Michael's. It turned out a little light and uneven.

A Birthday Card


Here's a card that I threw together late one evening last week when I realized that I needed to mail a card to my husband's Grandma the next day. I used the Birthday Bash cartridge and some old Provo Craft paper. I guess that's a trend for me, huh? Normally I would have used a little chalk or some ink on this thing, but I was under some serious pressure to get it (and a dozen other things) done. I think it turned out pretty cute, though.

The Storm before the Calm

Finally back, after a long hiatus. The school year is finally over for both my daughter and me! We have also had spring concerts, dance recitals, final exams, and a family wedding. Whew! Today was my daughter's last day of school and we can finally relax! I am looking forward to lots of scrapping in the next few months! I'll be posting a few new projects later this afternoon.
