Tuesday Morning Sketches

For this week's challenge on Tuesday Morning Sketches the design was our choice, but the color scheme required using the following colors:My card was designed from a Close To My Heart stamp set that I absolutely love, but really didn't know what to use it for. I just love that these stamps didn't require coloring -- school is taking a great deal of my time and since I am such a perfectionist, I didn't have time to color.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy.

Back to School

Well the summer is quickly coming to an end for me - boo hoo!! I have 2 days left before I have to return to work. Part of returning to work means a new classroom set-up. I love celebrating the children's birthdays. Last year I didn't even put their birthdays up. I'm not making that mistake this year. I spent the day making the 2nd Grade Birthday Calendar. I gleaned the idea from Close to My Heart Stamps. They made the calendar from a 12x12 and made it as family birthdays. I scoured Archiver's papers for the cardboard bottoms and cut, spliced, and taped them together to get a 15x15 template. What's going to be hard is that my class won't be finalized until close to mid-September. I made sure that the student names would easily come off. I also have other stamps that I want to use to put a emblishment that reflects the month, i.e., January - snow, December - holidays!!

Thanks for stopping by and looking. I hope you enjoy my love - scrapping!!


I recently joined my neice's ATC swap and was concerned about making the 3.5 x 2.5 card. Course once I got the hang of it I really enjoyed making them. Below are two ATCs that I made for two separate ABC swaps. I think they're really cute!
