Because You're Special~

Happy Wednesday. Can't believe that the week is half over already. It's been a crazy busy time around here. My oldest started school yesterday and #2 starts today. Things will be so much quieter around here during the day with only half of the kids. Unfortunately, both of my "helpers" are the ones gone. It's going to be an adventure for all of us. LOL! Who knows it just might translate into some stamping time for MOM. We shall see. Yesterday, I managed to finally get to this weeks Pixie Dust Challenge #90. "School is Cool" is the theme, which was kinda perfect. I needed to make a card for each of the boy's teachers. Here's what I came up with.

As you may notice this is Miss Pearl of Wisdom. Yes, I did use her last week for my bookmark. She is just so darned cute! I needed to make two cards so I kept the design fairly simple. I colored Pearl in with Copics and cut her out.

I chose similar pieces of Basic Grey paper for the bottom layer. From there I was able to use scraps and keep everything else the same. A Verve Cut Above Die Scallop Rectangle frame "frames" Pearl. A bit of Divine Twine and a lovely yellow button finish the job.

The inside is layered scraps. I cut a notch out of the Night of Navy cardstock with my 1" circle punch. I only took a pic of one because, they are pretty much the same. By this point in my card making process the baby had woken up from her nap. Another reason why I have to remember to KEEP IT SIMPLE. LOL! I tucked a $5.00 Starbucks gift card into each card. Just a little "thank you", getting to know you gift. The sentiment is from a MFT Pure Innocence set. I think they turned out pretty cute, if I do say so myself. Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a fantastic day!
