Teacher Thank You

This is the card I made for my son to give his kindergarten teacher at the end of the school year.  It was inspired by a card I have in my CASE files, and I don't know who the original artist is. 
***edited to add*** Danielle Flanders is the original artist,
HERE is the link to her card (scroll down).
I love how it turned out, and I made a wedding card with the same layout
that I will show you soon.

MFT Guest Design Contest - My Friend

MFT's Guest Designer Challenge was another sketch challenge this month,
 so I'm tossing my hat in the ring again.

Here is the sketch we had to work with:
And this is what I made:

My Friend
I pulled out Hot Cocoa Cutie from the a la mode line, colored her up and cut her out.  I added some "snow" in the lower right corner with Calico White spray, snowflake banners, a vellum layer behind her, and some hearts and bling.  I stamped "hello my friend" from Just My Type and punched out only the "my" with a heart punch.

Another angle: 

For the inside, I die-cut a snowflake, temporarily adhered it, and sprayed with Calico White again.  I then removed the snowflake mask and stamped the words. 

Thanks for stopping by, have a great weekend!

June SFYTT!!!


It's the first Saturday in June, so that means a new Sketch For You To Try!

Our sponsor this month is Lil' Inker Designs ~ they have such cute designs!
I've been lurking around this company for a while, and I'm so glad to finally have a chance to try out their stuff!

Moving right along, here is the sketch for this month:



The set I chose to work with for my card today is the
I love the detail on the dies. And I now have a head start on Christmas cards!

After I adhered the tree, it occurred to me that I should have sprayed it with some white Mr. Huey mist so it looks snow covered.  Oh well, next time.

Let's go see what the rest of the team has made and be sure to check out Jen's blog for more details and to link YOUR creation.
Thanks for stopping by!
