Hello friends! My card today is for the current CASology challenge to make a card using the cue word s.... s...... S...... SCHOOL. (There, I said it.)
While I know the "s" word is coming soon (luckily not until after Labor Day where we live), I am in no rush for its arrival. I am enjoying these long summer days and always hate to see them come to an end. (I also hate to see the darkness after dinner arrive earlier and earlier, but that's another story.)
Despite my desire to hang on to summer as long as possible, I honestly didn't mind making this teacher card. We always try to let our teachers know how much we appreciate them, so this card has given me a jump start for this coming year. (With two kids in elementary school and two in middle school, we need a lot of cards!)
I printed the free digi sentiment (designed by Kim Hughes) directly onto kraft cardstock, then stamped the Impression Obsession Gingham background using Hero Arts Soft Wheat shadow ink. The apple is actually part of the sentiment, so I colored it in with a red marker and added Glossy Accents to give it a nice "apple shine." Such a quick and easy card to make!
(Side bar: I don't know about you, but I love the free sentiments available at the Paper Crafts Magazine website. There are some gems there, be sure to check them out and scroll through the older issues, too.)
OK, enough of school talk...back to summer! Thanks for stopping by, I really do appreciate it.
Have a good one!
