Bird and Punch Pennant

Happy Monday! I never got time to stamp this weekend (boo! hoo!), but here's a quick little card I made over spring break. It's 4 1/4" square, and I sliced off some of the front edge to attach the little pennant border. I just cut triangles out freehand, stuck them on the bottom edge, then sewed them down. It was a little tricky getting a photo of the card standing so you could see how it opens. Here's another view of it laying flat:


I hope you enjoyed your weekend! I'm super happy that this is a 4-day work week with Good Friday! I have to say things are going great with our new Smart Board in the classroom! The kids LOVE it and are SO engaged! The main danger...teacher stays up too late finding/making things to do with it! lol!


Oh, and here's my favorite student thing from last week, during the middle of the social studies lesson about government when we were learning about elected officials (president, mayor, governor), one girl raises her hand and asks, "Why you no straighten your hair?" ha! Maybe she wasn't so engaged after all!


Okay, it's off to school I go...thanks so much for stopping by! Hugs and happy stamping!

LOVE LOVE LOVE this card!! OOOOOH, STUNNING! The banner is prefection and I lvoe the birdie and button and the top ribbon. SUWEET!!!!

Ha ha ha... that girl is totally me. I am a visual learner and during lectures my mind would go everywhere but in class. Things like that would pop in my head. It's a good thing I like to read and a good student. So I'd read before class so that I can afford to daydream and if the teacher ask me a question I'd just pretend I didn't hear the last part and ask the question to be repeated and I'd be ok :P
