It has been a difficult adjustment for me in the last week or two, because one of my kiddos has been finished with school, and the other is in her last week...with the little one not going to preschool for 7.5 hours a week, when am I to craft? :) If my posts are dropping off somewhat, that is why. I guess I'll have to figure this out because I have 2-1/2 more months before school starts again! ;)
But still I have managed to make a card for the Waltzingmouse sketch challenge. I was eager to use some new stamps that arrived in the mail last week. With the last day of school for my 1st grader being next Tuesday, I'm in need of some teacher thank you cards...so I pulled out some wonderful paper from Bo Bunny's Learning Curve line...I'm head over heels for this paper! Specifically, I used the Date Due paper, front & back.
And here's the sketch:
I was just dying to use my new Doily stamps! They are so beautiful, and stamp up really nicely.
And as this is a thank you card, I also want to take the opportunity to say thank you to each and every one of you who takes the time to look at my little blog each week and make a comment on my creations. I'm very new to this game of blog posting and challenge participation, but as an aspiring professional paper craft designer, I'm encouraged each week when I read the thoughtful comments...they are all much appreciated! So thank you! :)
