Bounty of the Season

Hello friends!  Seems the weekend is my crafty time lately!  Busy, busy, busy during the week. I am so looking forward to the week after next-- a whole week off for Thanksgiving Break and I am looking forward to some leisurely crafting. :)  I have several Christmas projects on my "to do" list!

I made six of these 4x4 cards and they are for my kindergarten team-mates. We have been together for 10 years and they are definitely much, much more than co-workers. They are true friends. Since I have been teaching, we have been through 3 principals, a bazillion curriculum changes, hundreds of students and many, many ups and downs. We have laughed together, cried together and know each other like sisters. I can count on them when times are tough and I really am so thankful for them.

This stamp is one of my favorites! I love fall leaves and think this one is a beauty! The ink rolling technique is perfect for stamps like these. I first inked the stamp with Goldrush, then added a bit of Sunset and finally I rolled the edges in Ruby. I kept the card design fairly simple, because I wanted the beauty of the image to be the star (and because I wanted to finish the six cards before midnight!). :)

Well, I am off to bed in a moment!  Wishing you all a Marvelous Monday tomorrow!

  1. Love these...your love for you K team-mates shows through. I had to chuckle when I read you've been thru 3 principals and a bazillion curriculum changes. Sounds like our school, lol. Enjoy your much deserved week off. I still have 3 days to go.
