some cards and a project

For a teacher - you may notice that I used this pattern several times.  I was kind of in a hurry.  It bothers me when I get so busy and don't get a card made for someone.  

A teacher asked me to make a card for her sister-in-law's 50th birthday.  She didn't want me to put the age on the card so I figured using the silver card stock would work for 50, you know 50th anniversary or silver jubilee.  Subtle in thought!

This card is for the same teacher.  She has a friend at church who is celebrating either her 84th or 85th birthday.  I am sorry it is so busy. I was copying a card from one of my cardmaker's magazines and got carried away.

Another quickie card for a para - teacher's aide.

For a kindergarten teacher.

Can you guess what this is?  No don't scroll down just yet.  check it out and see if you can guess.

A view from the side.

Ta Da!!!!!!!!!!  Isn't this just the coolest thing you have ever seen?  My friend, Sharon Field, a Stampin' Up rep, made one for me and I loved it so much I made one for my up-line, Faye.  Sharon has a tutorial on her blog today for how to make these ATG stands.  Check out her blog: Created By You.  Here is the link.  Be sure to email me and let me know if you make one, I would love to see all the different ones made out there

I spent about an hour trying to find the original post that I had copied to make this picture, but cannot find it anywhere.  Of Course, it is copied, you don't think I am this clever, I hope.
I sure wish I could have found it to give proper credit.  I made one for myself back in 2008 and framed it.  Had it hanging on my office wall and a woman I work with asked me to make a couple of them for her.  She wants to make a layout for her mom and aunt who have made several trips to the beach for vacations.

This one is only a smidgen different in the placement of the shells.  I used colonial white, parchment and sky card stock, some colonial white brads and the stamp set Footprints with Desert Sand ink.
Thanks for tuning in.  Have a great weekend.

  2. Love the ATG holder. I MUST make one for myself unless you want the honor. LOL. :)
