End of the Year Thank You Cards




I really had a lot of fun making these end of the school year Thank You cards for the twins' Pre-K teachers. 



I used the girl version of the Nerdy Pencils images by 2 Cute Ink. I colored the images with Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers (colors & pin-able palette below).

I used papers from the Doodlebug Design Back to School 6x6 Paper Pad. I cut the "thanks" on the Gemini machine and added Clear Sparkle Pen and Glossy Accents to it. 


On the inside I printed one of my favorite sentiments for teachers. This one is from the Silhouette Design store. I wrote a note to the teachers in the blank portion of the card and had the girls sign the cards as well.

New Mom - Mother's Day Card

Wowsers! I can't believe it's been over 2 MONTHS since I've written a blog post. Talk about slacking off...

Today I am sharing a Mother's Day card that I made for my SIL. She just had her first baby earlier this month (I'm finally an Aunt! Woo Hoo!!). 

I used the image Baby Snuggle Kaylee by Some Odd Girl


I colored the image with Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers. The card shape and all the background pieces were made on the Silhouette. I cut the flowers with the Gemini and the Die'sire Nature mini dies.  I added a layer of Crystal Clear Sparkle pen to them to give them a little shimmer and finished them off by putting a little Nuvo Drop in the center of each one.
