WMS BLog Party!!

This month the WMS Blog Party is all about Teacher Appreciation... it's the end of school...or close anywho... spring has sprung and summer is just days away....

Now, my girls are all grown up but, there were many... many.... teachers along the way that I LOVED!! When I visited (quite often- picking up, B-Days, Teacher conferences. volunteering... school trips.... etc. etc.)- they KNEW my girls!! Maybe not quite as intimately as I did but... ohhhh-- they "had their number"--- knew how to "call them on something"- ya' know what I'm saying!- and at the same time encouraged their individual uniqueness!!

Here's my contribution....

 
I've been ogling some notecard sets out in blog land and decided to create my own for the blog party. Did some resist embossing and sponging with distress inks. Love the font on these sentiments. The card holder was created with coordinating colors... just cut 1/4 inch larger on all sides, scored with my ScorPal, adhered with sticky tape, added some coordinating papers, button, and twine on the front. Tucked the cards inside.
 
 
Couple pics of the notecards...





Side of panel was stamped with an image from Chicken Wire or Text It in Adirondack Slate. Flowers (Vintage Garden Seed Packet and Vintage Garden Flowers) were stamped with WPlus9 white ink and heat embossed with clear. Sponged various distress inks to loosely color the stems and flowers. Finished with sentiments from Vintage Garden Seed Packet and Camellia. Papers are Simple Stories Vintage Bliss.

Here's the link to WMS- there are lots of goodies!!

Thanks for stopping by!! Love when you do and appreciate all the kind words!!
