Teacher's thank you cards

My youngest daughter Ava just graduated from preschool last Friday.  I made these cards for her 2 teachers to say Thank you for a wonderful year.  I used a SU set called Happy Moments and used my blender pen to color in the flowers.  I also used some glossy accents to the flower petals to give them some dimension and shine.  It's a nice addition to a card if you have the time to let it dry.    It's a very simple layout but I loved the way they came out.  Sometimes simple is all you need.

Card Club for June / Brayer technique

I have been so out of the loop when it comes to my blog lately.  The end of the school year is coming and there seems to be tons of things to do everyday.  My little girl turned 5 on Wednesday and she graduated from preschool today.  2 of my girls have their gymnastics show tonight and after next Wednesday's 3rd grade bbq, I should be out of the woods.  I am planning this month's cardclub on Friday June 25th.  We will be learning a brayer technique like the one shown in this card and also including some other fun types of card that we haven't done before.  I have limited space so please let me know if you will be attending as soon as possible.
