School Days Thank Yous...

Really -- it is coming to an end. Preschool finished today and we track out of elementary school next week. But I still needed another half-dozen Thank You cards for group teacher gifts and notes of appreciation for Room Mothers.

Andrea Walford came to the rescue with her makeover card on her blog this week. I copied the design, I just changed it to include the (retired) Darling Doodles Designer Series paper that I just love for anything school-related.

This is an example of a sketch that is a keeper! It is adaptable to so many situations and is a great way to use scraps of fabulous paper. It also comes together very quickly assembly line style!

Stamp Set: Enjoy Every Moment
Paper: Whisper White, Darling Doodles
Ink: Wild Wasabi
Accessories: Purely Pomegranate, Blue Bayou and Wild Wasabi Stitched Ribbon, Silver Brads

Life's a Breeze

The end of the school year crafting is sure to end soon! This is a set of cards from one of our preschool classes to the two teachers. We're going tropical with the good-byes because one of these wonderful ladies is quitting teaching to head to the Islands and pursue her dream -- she bought a restaurant/bar!

I love, love, love this "Life's a Breeze" set. Now that summer is unofficially here -- expect to see it a lot!

Stamp Set: Life's a Breeze
Paper: Wild Wasabi, Brilliant Blue, Bashful Blue, Pumpkin Pie, Jersey Shore DP, Whisper White
Ink: Brilliant Blue, Pumpkin Pie, Wild Wasabi, White Craft

The Tart and Tangy Collection

This is the other set of cards I made for the fundraiser at the Quota Conference. Since I also stamped all the attendee nametags and made the 8 packs in the post below, I went very simple for these sets. Simple because I completely CASEd the work of Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Andrea Walford. I love her style and inspiration (stop me if I've mentioned this before!). Anyway, love the summery set "Tart and Tangy" and the wonderful "Summer Picnic" Designer Paper!
