EBTKS: Happy St. Patrick's Day!



Happy Wednesday and Happy St. Patrick's Day! Hope you are having a great week! I had a card all set to post today, but then I got up and remembered it was St. Patrick's Day, so I did a quick improv and made this little ditty using the Everything But the Kitchen Sink sketch challenge. Don't tell anyone, but I *may* tear off that sentiment and change it to a "Happy Easter" or "Happy Spring" and send it to my grandparents! They aren't computerized, so I think I'll be safe! *wink*


Do you love this little chick?! Be still my heart, I sure do! I found him at Red Lead Paperworks, he's unmounted red rubber on cling, kind of like the new Stampin' Up unmounted. He doesn't come in a neat case like Stampin' Up!, but I can probably find something. The patterned paper and brads are Basic Grey. I like those brads, but now they seem to kind of get lost on there, probably should have chosen something more eye-catching. Oh well, there's always another card tomorrow! ha!


Oh, by the way, that movie I saw yesterday, An Education...I can't say I recommend it. It was well written and had superb acting, etc, but to see that girl making bad choices and throwing her life away, ACK! It was torture! lol! I can't imagine how parents (not hers, they were lame) go through that, I really admire all of you parents out there for taking that on!


So, today's plan (Yes, every day needs a plan, if there is no plan with a self-imposed deadline and pressure, I fall apart!) is to finish school work...lesson plans, grading, prepping materials, etc. I put things off until the last day of Christmas break, and I swore I wouldn't do that again. However, I cleaned my stamping room last night, rearranged, made room, made certain things (like stamps!) easier to get to, etc and it sure looks awfully tempting...


Hmmm, the movie Matilda just came on Starz, that must be a sign to do school work! Speaking of which, oh my gosh, I don't think I've told y'all yet...I'm getting a Smart Board installed in my classroom this week! I still have to get the software on my computer next week, but check this out:








Okay, I guess that's it for me, Chatty Cathy, this morning! Thanks so much for stopping by! Hugs and happy stamping!

Cute chick! I wonder if your new Smart Board is like my son's 1st grade Promethean board? I haven't seen it in action but I know it was a big deal when they started getting them. Pretty cool stuff!

love your card! I hope your submission makes it to PC. Now I know what a smart board is. My kindergartner son has one in his class room but I never pay much attention to it, until just now. TFS!
