2 Sketches 4 You and Grade 1 Grad

Hi *WoW* what a week! I'm just glad that school is done and that summer is here YIPEE! The weather here is gorgeous and are sicknesses are much better today (huge grin). I have two things to share with you today.

First one is my card for Kazan's sketch over at 2 Sketches 4 You. What a great sketch she did :)
Here's my take on it....
For the Paisley embossing on the green, I used my cuttlebug and SU's Craft Very Vanilla. I used a dauber to sponge the ink on after I embossed. All the flowers are felt flowers that I made, and I added some Jones Tones 3D metalic paint for the embellishing on them. The 'thoughtful' was cut out using my Cricut Expressions.....oh I really love my machine!!! I am going to be doing alot more cutting.

Okay for my next share, I have two pics of what I made for my son's class for their 'graduation'...well for passing grade 1!! The teacher put these along with their report cards....on these pics I have blurred out where the teachers name is :)

These were pretty easy to make. It was really nice having a Crop-a-Dile to put in all those eyelets. The number 1's were cut out using my Cricut Expression. I made a total of 20. I thought I would make them so that the kids could have them as a little keepsake that they could hang up in their rooms or something. I know for me that Grade 1 was the best and I'll never forget my teacher that I had Mrs. Damour....oh how I loved her.

Well that's it for me, enjoy your weekend and until next time :)
