Sending Birthday Hugs & Wishes

Hello, friends!  I snuck downstairs for a little inky session.  I've got back to school on my brain and have been in my classroom these past 3 days setting things up, making things, buying things, and easing myself into being at the school after a lovely summer break.  I am totally CASEing Dawn's Make it Monday card with a few tiny adaptations with the sentiment and the background grid design.  I used the OLD, or should I say CLASSIC, Background Basics: Retro set to create my backgrounds on both cards.  My white craft ink didn't show up that well so before it dried, I hit it with some white embossing powder.  I tried it in pink as well, like Dawn did.

Thanks for visiting!  Have a great day :)

what's in it?
stamps: Gran's Garden, Stylish Sentiments:Birthday, Congrats All Ways, Background Basics: Retro (retired) (PTI)
dies: Keep it Simple: Frames(PTI)
twine: rustic jute button twine (PTI)

Little Ones Count

 Greetings, friends!  I'm back today with another card made for one of our math presenters in a few weeks.  Though Verve has closed (insert sad face here), I will forever use this Teachers Count set.  Julee made it after I sent her some ideas for a teacher set :).  I'm entering this into the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Back to School.  Thanks for visiting...have a great weekend!

2 Teach is 2 Love

 Hello, friends!  Well, I am pleased to tell you that I am thoroughly enjoying the CLEAN studio and have made it down to stamp most days this past week.  It's great to know where everything is and have a place for everything.  It has cleared up my mind for sure.  We are having a couple of days of summer Professional Development in a couple of weeks and I was asked to make some thank you cards for our math presenters.  Teacher cards are my most favourite ones to make :)  I knew I had to put a little "math" into this fun!  I'm playing along with the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Back to School.  Thanks for stopping by!

Have a great week :)

Happy Birthday ~ Make it Monday

Hello friends!  I'm back from a little getaway on the long weekend (BC Day) to visit family and friends.  It felt good to come back to a CLEAN studio and some new goodies I'll have to unpack.  I made this card for PTI's Make it Monday.  I used a tiny floral from a retired Verve set (Autumn Blessings) to create the patterned background and a super old PTI Birthday Basics.  It's a classic, really! I'm so glad it hasn't been retired yet. Thanks for visiting :)

what's in it?
stamps: Birthday Basics (PTI), Autumn Blessings (retired Verve)
dies: Life is Beautiful, A2 Noted Vertical Scallop (PTI)
paper: aquamist, select white , bitty dot basics patterned paper (PTI), barely banana, blue bliss (SU)

I'll Go to It Laughing

Hello friends!  This stamp set was sitting by my computer for over a month and I thought it was time to share this card.  I made it for our Librarian Aide who retired in June (notice the "completed June 28, 2018) stamped on the side of the library card!  I created a bookmark that she can easily take off the card.  She loved it...there may have even been a few tears.  Seriously, I could never get tired of making cards for teachers and staff!  Hope your weekend is going well!  Thanks for stopping by!

 what's in it?
stamps: Book Club (PTI)
dies: Basic Bookmark 2 (PTI), stitched circle (MFT)
