How are you all this fine Monday morning?
My boys and I are enjoying our first official day of summer vacation!
It's raining -- but that hasn't hampered our moods too much.
Friday was their last day of school,
and as usual, I was working late into the night
on Wednesday and Thursday to complete the teacher gifts.
I always wait until the last minute! Procrastinator. ;)
Anyway, each of my boys has two teachers in their Montessori class,
and I always do card sets of six as their gifts, which totals up to
36 HANDMADE CARDS!!!
Whew! That's a lot to crank out in two days --
but I can't complain because it's my fault for not starting earlier.
So when you're making 36 HANDMADE CARDS
in two days, you have to keep the design simple.
Or at least, I do.
I loved the chalkboard image from Lawn Fawn's A Good Apple,
but I knew they were going to take too much time
to really achieve a realistic chalkboard look.
So I had the brilliant idea to use it as a whiteboard!
Some colored ink, a quick line drawn on the chalk stick,
some selective coloring and I had a dry-erase marker.
Here's some samples:
I also used Lawn Fawn's Lucky Stars on the middle card.
I used up the entire 6x6 pad minus two sheets from
the Simple Stories Vintage Bliss collection.
I think they turned out cute, and the teachers always tell me
how much they look forward to receiving them.
I hope you enjoyed them too!
Have a great day!
