I found a great blog listed at the Daily Dare called the Sketch and Stash Challenge Blog. A sketch is given and you are supposed to use some of your latest stash on the card. Well, I got this ribbon that I absolutely love the other day. The Joann's closest to us is not really a stamping friendly store. It has tons and tons of material. I don't sew, so that is of no use to me. They have no stamps, and a limited supply of paper. But they do have a decent ribbon section. So I got this ribbon there that I think looks great with PTI's Spring Moss.
Our school is having their teacher appreciation week next week. I decided to get started early on my son's teacher's card. That gives me time to decide if it's teacher-worthy or not. I really wanted to get PTI's Teacher's Apple set, but I am not allowing myself to order anything else from them until their next release. So I will probably get that for her end of the year card. My son has had the best teacher again this year. He wants to make his own card for his teacher that is from him, so this one will just be from me.
Speaking of my son, he wanted me to post a picture he drew for a friend's birthday the other day. He was looking at a card on my blog the other day, and he said, "Mom, those cards look cool when they're on the screen like that. Will you please put my picture on there?" So here is Luke's creation, too. He absolutely loves Star Wars and clone troopers, and all that goes with it.
