(Take Note) You are Fabulous!



Good morning!  It’s a lovely Sunday morning and I’m looking forward to a fun day with my son.  He arrived last night and is surely sleeping soundly in the guest room at the time of this post :)  I was busy yesterday with DT cards, but wanted to sneak in a fun challenge.  The palette at ColourQ were just too yummy to pass up this week AND I had this gumball ribbon sitting on my desk, begging to be tied onto a card.  I’m thinking this will go to a colleague at some point this year (with a little box of chocolates, of course :)

Thanks for all the well wishes as I start a new school year.  The classroom is all set up and ready for my new students :)  As sad as it is to say goodbye to summer, I do look forward to all the exciting teaching ideas I have planned this year :)  AND lucky for me, the studio is close at hand :)  Have a great day!

p.s. Today is my dad’s 81st birthday and I’m SO excited that I finally get to give him this card (see original post HERE).  He’s coming for dinner and I’m making his favourite cake, Boston Cream, just like my mom used to do :)

I love how you took this color combo and made it more feminine! It's gorgeous!

And guess what...today...you are fabulous! Got the mail late yesterday and received my gorgeous card. My Moe shelf is full of such beauties from you! xoxo

Beautiful card Maureen! I love that colour combo! The card for your dad is great too! That's wonderful that you're making him the cake your mom used to make--I'm sure he'll LOVE that!

Good luck with the new school year! I may have to start searching for some teaching blogs too!
