Hey Delightful Friends and Family! We are enjoying summer days here and I truly don't want to make you think about this BUT here, school IS just around the corner again! Can you believe it? Do you even want to think about it? Me either! HOWEVER... here in northern California, school will be starting in just a couple more weeks, (just when the weather is starting to cooperate and act like summer, too!). Well, that's just our neck of the woods and something we've learned to accept living in the north end of the state. Late summer is always gorgeous around here and we enjoy it. I don't have to go to school although I
almost always ;-) like those teachable moment that come along! Are we ever too old to learn?!
On the 15th of each month Christian Paper Crafts opens the Design Team Delights
private gallery for all Super Sisters and King’s Daughters subscription holders, there are cards, scrapbook layouts and fun altered projects that go along with this months theme of Back To School
. The five days prior to that are the Gracious Glimpses
for all to see at the Creative Blog!
Many of you have grandchildren or nieces and nephews that do not live close, I think it would be nice to send them a card and let them know you are keeping them lifted up in prayer during the school year. I have a nephew who is starting as a new student at a Christian School and is having some family issues that could make things a little bit harder for him to stay focused. I won't be sending him this card (just a little too girlie for a boy!) but I've made another one that will do nicely. So here is my sneak peek:
I just love this little digi from ByLORiDesigns
! Her name is Lacey Lollipop. I've printed and resized the digi image using Microsoft Publisher 10 and printed her out on Neenah (Bright White). After coloring with my Copic Markers I used the Deckled Rectangle Nestabilities Die from Spellbinders to cut the shape and to frame out the image. The finished card is A2.
Ingredients: Stamps: Taylored Expressions (Summer Wreath set - both sentiments); Ink: Memento, Tuxedo Black; Designer Paper: Karen Foster, (Writing Practice, Buses); Bazzill card stock; Copic Markers: G24; BG53, 99; E00, 15, 37, 79, 95, 97; YG00, 23, 67, 91, 93, 95; Y26; R46.
