A happy hello from the girl on vacation! :)
Can ya tell I love being home and not working? It's funny, because I really do love my job. But I also love the time off I get. I guess it's a balance of both that keeps us happy.
Anyway, I loved Jennifer's personalized teacher cards on the Hero Arts Blog the other day. I thought of my younger sister, Laurie and wanted to make her a similar card. She teaches at a school for special-needs kids and is so good at what she does! I'll be giving this card to her for her first day back.
When I uploaded the card image, I chose the large size this time. It was a request from Anita. Hope this is better, Anita. Thanks for the suggestion.
This photo doesn't show the pretty color of the card base very well. It's a Hero Hues card in a poppy color from the Sunshine Set of folded cards. I stamped the Graph Background with Hero Hues Mango Dye Ink. The apples are from this set. I stamped them with the Punch colored Chalk Ink, added a deeper red with a Copic marker, doused them with Glossy Accents and cut them out before adding them to the die cut piece. I then hand drew the stems and leaves. Hope she likes it!
I am leaving shortly to take my 15 year old son, David, to his second day of driving school. Yikes! Can't believe he's that old already! He's my baby and such a good kid! He has a wonderful sense of humor and makes me laugh everyday! And the best part is that he is still willing to give me a hug when I want one. Hope it lasts!
Have a fabulous Saturday! :)
