We are back at school! So exciting for us here in BC, while many will agree the contact isn't perfect it does get our kids and their teachers back in the classroom with hopefully many positive changes to come in the next few years. Time will tell and for now I am happy that my son is excited to be going to Grade One.
With this in mind I decided to make his teacher a card for this Friday afternoon to congratulate her survival of not only a lengthy job action but the first week back with a room full of first graders who had 5 extra weeks of summer...
Using this weeks sketch from Atlantic Hearts, the Chalk It Up paper packet and the stamp set from the Chalk It Up Workshop on the Go. I made this super fun and for me, super busy card. This is also a 6x6 size card which is much larger than I typically make but I really wanted to use the "Life is good" stamp.
Other products for this card are White Enamel Stars, Black Arrow Washi Tape, Chalk it Up Assortment (which are puffy stickers! as a child of the 80's puffy stickers rock!), the twine is from the Twinery and the black polka dot star is from my stash. I also got to use my Chevron Border Punch along the bottom of the card. Inks used are Lagoon, Flaxen and Black. A few sparkles and I think my crazy card is done. I hope she likes it!
