Couple of cards 2

Check out Vicki Wizniuk's card here.   This is cased from her blog.  Vicki makes and sells the most beautiful work and  I always enjoy visiting her blog for new ideas.  The card is for my boss.  Her birthday is Thursday and her favorite colors are pink and green, which is also her sorority colors.  

This card is for our Teacher of the Year.  Ms. C. Smith.  We have so many  Smith's in our school we call them by their initial.    I used  the Notebook paper pack.  One of my absolutely least favorite paper packs of all time, as the papers have coffee stains ALL over them.  In all CTMH paper packs there are 6 different 12X12 papers, two of each design and there are 10 sheets of 12X12 card stock six of them in the colors that are found in the papers of each paper pack and four in white daisy or colonial white to use as bases for layouts or card making.  Back to the coffee stains - ewe yuk.  I DO NOT like distressing done on a card, layout or other project.  Some people really think it looks nice, but to me it looks dirty.  Why would I put all that effort into a project and then half destroy it before giving it to someone?  To me that would be like taking an article from around my house that I didn't want or care much about and giving it as a gift.  Nope, not happening!!!!  I was able to cut this paper so that little to none of the coffee stains showed.

Thanks for tuning in.  If you haven't seen them check out my other three posts today.
