Ugh, but not yet!!  LOL  But almost :)  Today's card is a different take on the current Verve Project Parade.  Before summer can really start for me or any teacher , school has to end :)  I was in one of our local dollar stores last week and saw these fun little clips that I see at office stores, but these ones were colourful and $1.00!!  I knew I wanted to make some kind of "school's out"  card...hmmm, but who for?  Then I thought about turning it into a thank-you card for our secretary :)  She is the center and soul of the office and makes everything run smoothly :)  The Verve sentiment from Kindred Spirits was the perfect one to add :)  Is that fun polka dot paper or what?  It's the reason I had to have Basic Grey's Green at Heart...I wish I had a whole pad of it :)  Oh, and another cork flower...love these :)  So my summer officially begins on June 30th...I consider this the New Year's Day of my year, not January 1st :)  Thanks so much for visiting and all your sweet comments...my blog buddies new and old are the best :)

This is an awesome card! The cork flowers, the ledger paper with the punched edge, everything school supply themed... love it! The countdown is on!

Oh, she is going to love this card! Those glittery letter are too fun! I've never been brave enough to try out those on my cards... I guess I prefer stamping. I used those a ton when I scrapbooked, though. Love that little cork flower, too! One of these days, I am going to have to use cork on a card just to try it out. It always looks so wonderful on your cards. :)

Happy New Year's Eve! 14 days left for me...

This is so fun!!! Love the cork flower and dot dp. Sometimes my greatest finds are at the dollar store.

Oh I'm so ready for school to be out - but not until July 23rd for us!!!! Now I'm a sucker for stationary, in fact I too have purchased these cute little clips in my local supermarket but hardly used them - you've inspired me to root 'em out and play! As for cork...well the only cork I have is from Wine Bottles ;D
Hugs,

The secretary will love her card; it's fabulous! Yes -- a good secretary is the heart & soul of a school. And, I so agree with you about New Year's Day. I always feel so much more "resolved" on the first day of summer vacation... kinda like I can accomplish any goal I set. :)
