My poor father isn't getting any younger, yet, between the two of us girls, he's moving someone at least every year (and he thought that would end when we moved out of the dorms... ha!). I just moved two weeks ago, and wanted him to know that I appreciated all of his hard work. I made him this card and stuck a Lowes gift card in it.
I drew my inspiration from the Mojo Monday sketch for this week.
I am virus free, have an internet connection, and a newly organized craft room! I'm ready to rock and roll on some projects!
I made this card for my cousin's 6th birthday. My parents hosted a surprise party for him 2 days before his actual birthday. Mind you, this is a 6-year-old going on 30. He walked in, ran straight to his mom and said, "But Amy [he calls his parents by their first names], it's not my birthday yet." After she explained that we did it early to surprise him, he said, "Did you just use grandma to distract me?" I'm telling ya, my 2nd graders don't use that vocabulary at the end of the school year!

This school year was so busy and stressful, with grad work piled on top of my grading and lesson plans. I'm ready for a refreshing, craft-filled summer!
I participated in my first online challenge! This color challenge comes from My Pink Stamper. The challenge was to use orange, green, and turquoise. I made this card as a thank you for a student who gave me a gift at the end of the year.
