My card this week focuses on encouragement for the student. Here it is, using a "Can You Digi It" image,
The cloud was printed on white, the bird on yellow, and the gorgeous background is new from DCWV, "Bouquet de Fleur", available at Michael's! I love the music sheet print on the little bird and the text on the cloud! It all comes on the digital image! I popped up both the cloud and the bird. I just noticed that one of my machine stitches slipped through on the last heart... homemade cards...that's what makes them special.
Since I've "retired" from teaching, I lose track of how quickly it's time for everyone else to go back to school!

They're sure to get you back into the "school year mode"!
And, please, leave a comment. They truly make my day! If you're not a follower, click it! I would love to see that number grow!
I then added the ribbon that ties partially around the card to give the appearance of a wrapped gift. With the extra space inside, I can always add an actual pair of boy's socks for my 7 year old grandson! Yeah, I know, that's mean! Haha!
Hope you got a kick out of this and maybe some new ideas!
I wanted to capture the magic that was so evident in the photo where my grandson is reading to my mother,
There will only be so many moments like this in
Hayden had been reading at a very high level for some time, but my mother had never had the opportunity until last November to sit down and share a book with him. I know she loved it, having read to me and my sister, and then to my children from the time we were all very young.
At only 6, he was reading at a third grade level! He has since started second grade this year, and is in a Gifted Program, so I'm sure he will be passing us all up and reading everything he gets his hands on now!
These DCWV papers are so gorgeous to work with!
Fall colors with a touch of elegance...
The gold foil on the leaf pattern paper is my all-time favorite for this time of year!
Even in small amounts die cut, border punched, or as trim, this paper steals the show!
The coordinating stickers make putting together a finished layout a breeze!
My banners have a beautiful sheet music print and comes in the stack, too!
I only wish my photos would do it justice.
My mother hates photos of herself, but I have a feeling she'll
make exceptions for this one!
Please leave a comment so I know you've been here!
I love reading them and returning the favor by going to your blogs and seeing
with my splash of color being the red in the papers,
and the image having to follow the black and white rule!

Fantasy, combined with Halloween, mix in a bit of romance...
I had some Graphic 45, "Hallowe'en in Wonderland" paper left over from Fall last year and decided to use it to clear the way for yet more NEW papers! Whee!
Other than the spider who was stamped and heat embossed, no images were used on this card. And the sentiment was one generated on my computer in Word...
easiest card I've made in a while!
Since "Alice" is a fictional character, I figured this would count as a fantasy project! I dearly love little Alice. And it would be so like me, too, to pick up and eat a biscuit just because it said "Eat me"... yea, I'm gullible that way!
