Thank U Teacher

The school year is winding down and I thought I would try my hand at a thank you card for one of my daughter’s teachers.

I used Back 2 School pencil from Meljen’s Designs. I erased the “Back 2 School” that comes on the image and printed my own sentiment.

Today kicks off the new challenge at the Meljen’s Designs blog. This week we are challenging you to “Go Coastal”. Have a coastal (or beachy) theme to your project. You can find all the details on the Meljen’s Designs blog. The new digital images released today on Whimsy Stamps are perfect with for the theme.

Thank you for stopping by!

It has been a really long time since I have been able to spend time in my craft room.  One of my New Years resolutions was to get back into my craft room on a regular basis.  Well, it is now October and I am finally here.  I'm hoping to be back more often.

I made this card to send to a family member that has been in my thoughts a lot lately.

I hope to have more to share soon.

Sweet 16!

Hello!  I managed to sneak into my craft room for a bit today.  My daughter is turning 16 next week. (Where does the time go?)

Since the demise of Picasa, I have not found a new program to edit my photos.  I know there are several available but I have not had time to learn a new program.  I apologize that my photos are less than optimal at the moment.

Have a great day!  Thank you for stopping by.
