just two tonight



I needed a few birthday cards for tomorrow, so this is what I came up with. You may recognize this one. I made a larger version this weekend copied straight from Kathi Carlson's blog. The first one is a sketch challenge from Heart 2 Heart. I made it for a teacher who is also a swim coach. She teaches the pre-k class and I think the world of her.
I got a hug today from a lady who celebrated her birthday over the holiday weekend. She was really touched by my card. If I can brighten someone's day by making a card, that makes me happy.
It is past my bedtime. Oh my goodness, I forgot to mention that I worked at the school until 5:15 when the principal made me turn off my computer. I usually leave at 3:30 right on the dot. Apparently that won't be happening much for the next few weeks. This is my first end of the year in a school - SURPRISE, SURPRISE SURPRISE. Can't you just hear Gomer Pyle saying that to Andy Griffith or Sgt. Carter?
Thanks for tuning in.

  1. Your comment about the end of the school year takes me back . . . my Mom was a teacher and I remember so many years of "end of year" stress! My heart goes out to you!

    I love your cards! Just excellent - and I'm glad that you have brought joy to others with them - it must feel really good!

  2. Love your Hawaiian card. It is so beautiful. What a nice feeling to make someone so happy. I loved Gomer Pile as a kid and I can hear him saying "Surprise, surprise, surprise". What a funny show that was.
