Pin It


Take A Number birthday

Happy Tuesday! I had lots to do last night, but gave myself 30 minutes to make a card. I used Beate's Weekend Sketch #40, although I changed it from rectangular to square. I'm not sure I got the placement of the circle exactly right by the sketch, but mine needed to go there because of the paper lines. Not sure if I'm crazy about this...decided to wheel the Take A Number over the patterned paper...seemed like a good idea at the time, but not sure of the results. The "4 you" is from the retired SU set Play on Words (never could bring myself to get rid of that set).

Below here is the inside of the card. I saw this idea on Nichole Heady's blog where she stamped the inside greeting and cut it apart in strips (I just took the picture this morning, sorry it's not too good). I like the effect a lot. I did it on my niece Emma's card (posted last week), but forgot to take a picture of it.

Gotta dash...early morning tutoring again. I swore after the reading TAKS test I was going to cut back, but I'm back to tutoring 5 times a week again! Argh! Now I have to help the kids who failed the Reading TAKS for their next try on April 30 as well as help all the struggling math students for the Math TAKS on April 29. Wish me strength! lol! Have a great Tuesday!

Good luck with your tutoring. I don't know how you have any time for yourself.
