CAC Sketche card 8-2

It's been a while since I made a card. Summer's about over and it is time to get back to work (thank goodness - summer break wears me out with the extra house work {this year: new roof, painted the dining room and hallway walls plus the regular yard work, swimming lessons, sorting out too-small clothing, stopping the fights between the boys, etc.} and I'm ready for meeting my new student). Back to school means making sure I have a minimum of 5 birthday cards in my drawer to give to my co-workers (4 Core teachers and the Special Ed. case manager; if I find out the birthdays of any of the Encore teachers (art, music, P.E., Family and Consumer Science, Health, Gateway to Technology, etc.) and if I need more, I can always make more to finish out the school year. I also like to have a couple of thank you cards ready (esp. around Christmas and end of school).

Here is the card sketch for this week: And here's what I came up with:

I kept it pretty simple. I used two pieces of sheer wired ribbon (one of them doesn't have the wire anymore because I played with it too much) for the decorative edge and a shorter piece that I ran a bit of thread thru the middle to draw up and gather for the "bow" that I glued onto the ribbon. Then I used a Big&Juicy rainbow pad (the purple end) to stamp the swirls and dark brown ink to stamp the sentiment.

Thanks for looking. Until next time....
