I can hardly believe it but Trevor only has 2 more weeks of school. Yesterday I received graduation info in the mail and it just made it so.... real. LOL Trev goes to a small school that specializes in kids with "social and emotional disorders" like Asperger's, so everything is done on a smaller level and feels more personal. I love it. On May 24th, they are having a "graduation breakfast" at a local restaurant for the graduates and their parents. I bought a special gift for Trev's favorite teacher (she's my favorite, too - shhhhh) and the principal of the school. I will write more and share pics once I have given the gifts, I don't want to spoil the surprise! I also made thank-you cards, bookmarks, and gift card holders for some of his other teachers, his clinician, and the assistant principal. It definitely comes in handy having a hobby that results in unique and special hand-made gifts!
Anyway - on to business! First up is my card for the:
I used the Tiddly Inks "Old Book" image and "Schoolgirl" image and the sentiment is under the book's cover... I had fun making this little notecard so that the book cover opened instead of the entire card. Cardstock is from SU! Letter stickers are from my stash and the Dr. Seuss quote was printed out in my word processing program.
Next up - I cannot put down this new paper I got from My Mind's Eye, I had to use it for this next card, which I am entering into the following challenges:
I used one of the Swiss Pixie angels and paper-pieced her clothes and boots. I used Prismacolor pencils and mineral spirits on her skin and hair, and SU! Dazzling Diamonds glitter on her wings. I like the simplicity of this card, hope you do too. :)
