Congratulations

It's officially summer break for this teacher! Today my husband asked me what it was like to wake up and know that I don't have to go to work and not have anything that "has" to get done that day. Um ... its nice! :-)

Sorry its been so long since I stopped in here. I did get a chance to whip up a couple of congratulations cards for some of my mentee teachers last week. I had one finish her first year and another finish her 3rd year (and graduating from the beginning teacher program) and both either got married or are getting married this summer. Lots of things to celebrate for these young women this past school year. I made two of these cards and included a little zipper pouch with their new monograms on them as a little gift for each of them. I think they were more excited about the monogrammed pouch than my handmade card! ;-) The cards are pretty simple ... some Bo Bunny patterned paper - the dotted paper is the reverse of the floral side. And some Aqua Mist paper ribbon. Very easy, but still fun and young, just like the recipients! :-)

Well, I do have some things on my agenda for tomorrow ... all crafty things just for fun.

Thanks for stopping by!

Supplies Used:
Stamps: PTI Enjoy the Ride
