Lot of Bright Thanks — FMS139

Happy Wednesday!  This is the last week of school here, and we can almost taste summer vacation.  Just a couple more days of those pesky finals for my high schooler and middle schooler, and a fun field day and end of the year party for my third grader.  Woohoo!  I love having the kids home for the summer!

Meanwhile, we have another great sketch for you this week over at Freshly Made Sketches.  Out hostess is the always clever and creative Rita Wright.  And she is giving us the opportunity to play with tags this week.  I don’t know about you, but I love making tags.

My daughter needed a card for a beloved principal who will be moving to lead another IB (International Baccalaureate) school in Nicaragua this summer.  She told me she wanted to write him a note, but didn’t know what to say because her heart was so full.  It made me think of a sentiment in the Lots of Thanks stamp set.

Say It AllHer favorite colors are yellow, orange and blue, so those are the colors I chose for the card. I stamped the sentiment on one of the Project Life Everyday Adventure cards.  I cut it down a tad to make it more tag-size.

I punched the little stars with one of the new Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack punches and added some rhinestones.  The dsp is from the Kaleidoscope dsp pack, which is retired now but I haven’t gotten my order of new stuff yet, so there you go.  I also used the fun Arrows Embossing folder.

Say It All Close UpWe hope you’ll join us and make your own card with the sketch this week.  Hop on over to the Freshly Made Sketches site for some inspiration from the other designers.

Enjoy your Wednesday!  Thanks for stopping by!

  1. This is a perfect card for saying thanks to what is obviously a valued principal. Your daughter is very sweet to want to do something and you made her the perfect card.

  2. This card is so lovely Amy and will be perfect for your daughter’s principal! I love the mix of colours! I always forget to use my Project Life cards (usually because I’m hoarding them for my albums!)! I love those sweet little stars and can’t wait to get that punch!
