School's out, and both my girls are relieved and happy. With a few exceptions, it was a good year. My youngest is naturally gifted and school comes easy for her...it's the other parts she struggles with. My oldest made the honour roll, and we are so proud of her. I thought I should make up a couple of cards to let them know how happy we are of their achievements, and when I saw Julee's card here, well I felt a CASE comin' on!
The sketch is Mojo Monday 145, and I had this old paper pack on my desk, and I thought I would try to get one step closer to finishing it off. It's Basic Grey's Urban Prairie...definitely one of my favorites, and honestly the one that got me hooked on Basic Grey's papers! The rest is an eclectic collection of stuff. The little love note paper is a sticker from SU that was destined for the recycle bin if I didn't use it right away. The punch is Martha Stewarts deco shells, the sentiment is from Gina K's Little Tees and the floral spray (looks like fireworks here!) is an Imaginesce snag 'em stamp. I wrapped some Bermuda Bay ribbon around the belly and made a scrunchy flower set with a Basic Grey button. To add a little sparkle, I finished with "Pink" stickles around the circle and on the flower spray. Oh, and the sentiment is coloured in with a glitter gel pen. It's kind of fun to just grab whatever works!
That's it today. I have so much to do as we prepare to go camping for the Canada Day weekend, but I hope to get a few things done and scheduled for your viewing pleasure. Have a fabulous weekend and stop in soon! I really love it when you do!
