Laura's Sketch #24: mom!
Happy Wednesday! Hope everyone is having a great week! So far so good here...the kids are working hard and I'm loving them to death!
I worked on a couple of cards for Mother's Day, and since I know my mom doesn't check my blog (much? ever? they have dial-up, I don't blame her! lol!), I can go ahead and share this one. I used Laura's Sketch #24 from over at 2 Sketches 4 You. I didn't get to do their sketch last week and that bummed me out!
The card started with some scraps of paper and a chipboard flower on my desk, then I decided on the crisp white background with added texture from the Cuttlebug Swiss Dot folder, and then some Thickers. I needed an accent color and started digging through my ribbon and found this very old black and white stripe (I *think* it's Lil Davis from when Jenni Bowlin designed for them), which then prompted me to remember some very old Heidi Swapp black and white journaling notes...and miracle of miracles, I actually found them! lol! That's it, it all fell together then! Oh, the white circle has rub-ons from the SU Summer Love Rub-Ons from the Occasions Mini Catalog.
So I'm trying to decide what to do next year with my teaching...stay with the RTI (Response to Intervention) helping struggling students in small groups or go back into the classroom as a regular teacher? I'm really feeling pulled in the second grade direction, even though I used to teach 3rd grade. Any thoughts?! There are advantages and disadvantages to both, of course. Our administration did share exciting plans about new facilities for us next year, it will be so awesome for our students and teachers!
Okay, better dash! Thanks so much for stopping by and sharing your love! Y'all are the best! Hugs and happy stamping!
(p.s. I went ahead and scheduled this to post at 4 a.m. since Amy is probably already up...let's see if she's reading blog posts this early! hee! hee!)
