Congrats Grad

Here's another card for this month's Card A Day Blog challenges.  I plan to use this for one of the many young ladies I know graduating from HS in June.  I used Daisy Bucket Black Tie patterned paper to make the flower using Sam and Hailey Designs Dahlia Folded Flower file (JB00290).  The black and white paper makes it look so formal.  I cut the greeting from vinyl using my own design.   I think the young lady I have in mind for this will like it :).  Thanks for looking.

Spring Cards

Here are a couple of cards I made using Chris Durnan's of Visual Designs by Chris file CD00844 - Fancy Flower Edges and the word Spring from retired designer Shirley Clark's file "Spring".  I cut the flower edges for a friend to use to  make a Mother's day card.  She couldn't decide what to do with them so I told her to move on and I'd use them later.  And here are the results to use for one of Card a Day Blog's April Challenges.  Hindsight - I wish I'd cut the second "Spring" from different color paper :).

Teacher Appreciation

Here's a card I am going to give to my son's homebound teacher.  I truly appreciate her volunteering to do it.  She teaches High School full time, teaches 2 nights a week at the community college, is a wife and mother of 3 very active children.  And she still volunteered to do it.  She knows his history with chronic migraines and the struggles I've had with other teachers through the years.  I wanted to cry when she told me she volunteered.  This card is not enough.  I need to come up with something else to do for her.

I used Carrie's Creations file CS00175 - School Value Pack from Paperthreads. I cut the school house mini album cover to use for a card. I used spider web paper on the inside and spider paper for the door background.  Our school mascot is a spider :-).  Instead of using the window that goes above the door I used our school name. Black and gold are the school colors.

I will also be posting this for the Card a Day blog monthly challenge.  Thanks for looking.
