Last Day of School

Woo hoo!  School's out for Summer!  Except that doesn't really change much for us.  It's just camp instead of school.  And there's still homework- Summer reading, Summer journal, Math flashcards...  Oh my!  Kayne's Summers are a bit different from the ones I enjoyed.  But though I feel that twinge of guilt and regret at carefree Summers lost, I know he'll have amazing opportunities I never had!  Archery, canoeing, swimming, and a host of other awesome warm weather activities await him all Summer long!  But first we had to say thank you to the hard-working and wonderful staff at his school!  I pulled an {almost} all nighter to get gifts and cards ready so I thought I'd show them off!

Here is the card and gift card bouquet I made for his teacher using LDRS' Saturated Canary Geekin' It.  It's hard for even me to believe I whipped all this up in one night (well, I did color two of the images the evening before, but still...)!  This little cutie was stamped with Memento Ink in Tuxedo Black, colored with Copics, and then cut with Resplendent Rectangles Nestabilities (Spellbinders).  I layered a bunch of my La-La-Land Crafts dies of course!  Here I used Fancy Doily Border, Scallop Border, Scalloped Banner, Glasses, and Open Book.  The notebook edge is a border punch.  I added flowers, paper straws, a few pearls, and a metal Tim Holtz hinge clip.     

LDRS' Saturated Canary Homework graced a card for the principal.  His note reminds me of something I would write.  Though I think ours would involve the cat and a hair ball...  Also stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Copics, this little guy is cut with Long Rectangles Nestabilities (Spellbinders).  I am obsessed with this Tim Holtz Star Cluster border die (Sizzix) that I got a few months back!  I also added Stars Five Nestabilities (Spellbinders) and Sunburst Border (La-La-Land Crafts).  The "a" is from My Favorite Things, and the notebook edge is that same border punch.  Flowers and a Tim Holtz pen nib are the final details.

Saturated Canary's Diane finishes up the trio of cards and she went to the school secretary (who helps me copy PTG materials and I'm forever indebted to)!  She is colored with Copics and cut using Deckled Rectangles Nestabilities (Spellbinders).  I also added Heart Doily Border and Clipboard Border (La-La-Land Crafts).  Flowers, pins, a rhinestone flourish, and a Tim Holtz book plate are the details I added.

 I love that I'm coloring up some of my Saturated Canary images lately!  Even if it does mean sleep deprivation on occasion!  Summer might be calling, but right now I think bed is calling louder!  'Night!
