Imagine ...

Happy Monday!

Anyone else counting down the minutes left until summer break?  I am!  I figured this year I would have a quiet, slow run up to the end of June - we donèt have soccer this year, gymnastics is over and I started my Teacher Gifts in May.  Hmm.  So what happened ... I dunno ... although the last 2 weeks have been much different than usual.  I had 2 funerals in the span of 8 days, LOTS of birthday parties for the girls (as Summer-Birthday kids try to get their parties in during June before everyone leaves for vacation destination), and I have volunteered at he school today and tomorrow for bowling and games day!  Needless to say napping is not an option :)  Last night I just wanted to drop into bed (thank you evil allergy fairy for plaguing me for the last 5 days!!!!!) but I just HAD to make some Thank You cards for the teachers and secretaries at the school.  I had a really good time making these:
(yes, it is a standard sized card - I just took an odd angle shot of it ...  oh ... and forgive my lack of punctuation ... I seem to have turned on the French language function again ... dont know HOW I do that!!)

I used the retired set First Day from last years mini catalogue and the sentiments is from Word Play.  Obviously I used Black, White and Real Red c.s. and red ink.  The chalkboard letters and numbers are done with the white craft ink.  I popped the A+ up with dimensionals.  I like how it turned out.  As usual, I had no plan going in ...

Hope you have a fun week - thanks for stopping by :)
