Birds of a Feather....

Hello & Happy Tuesday Everyone!
I've got 2 days left of School! YAY!
Today & Tomorrow are 1/2 days for the kiddos
so I'll get out early! NICE! 😀 I found out recently that
I'll have about a month off before I need to return to work...
I was a bit surprised by that, since I just spoke with
the principal.... but that's okay... that gives me 30 days of
some FUN crafting time.... I'm also planning a trip
before I head back to work too... I'm so excited about it...
I'll tell ya more about it before I go.. 😉

In the mean time... here's a card I created for
one of the Teachers at School....

I just LOVE the way this card turned out - I'm using another
AWESOME Digital Paper Collection... this one is called
(Birds of a Feather) by Meredith Cardall - I actually met
Meredith a few years ago at an All Day Craft event when
I lived in Monticello, UT... I found out her Mother lived there 
& she actually lived down the street from me! LOL Small World!

I liked the first card so much that I made a second one, 
to mail to a crafty friend! 😊

I used Sheer Shimmer Frost Spritz to Sparkle up both cards
and I heat embossed the "Happy Birthday" Sentiment - 
I really like the color combo on this set...

This is just too cute. SO glad you decided to make two. I didn't realize you were a teacher? I miss teaching in a class room. Even though, I home school my girls. I miss working with the little ones. Have a great day!!
