Card Making Kick Tonight!

I don't know about you but sometimes I get in a slump of being too tired or too stressed to sit down and make new creations! Well tonight was not one of those nights! YEAH! Though I have had plenty of them lately I knew I needed some cards tomorrow so I sat down and my creativity kicked in! I'm pretty pleased with how my cards turned out! Take a look and see what you think!

One of our band teachers at school has decided to join the Army band Core. I'm proud of him for making a tough decision with the world situation being what it is! I made him this card to let him know I wish him good luck! The paper is all SU, the stamps are from Paper Trey! Love that set!

I actually made two of this one - exactly the same! One is for our school nurse. She is the strongest woman I know. She has SO much on her plate of life yet she comes to work and can still smile as she takes care of the smallest little "boo boo's"! The second one is for a kindergarten aide who very recently had major surgery and, thank goodness, is on the road to recovery! While I can't talk to her as much as I'd like, I thought I'd make her a card to let her know I was thinking of her! The solid color paper and ink are all SU, the printed paper is from one of those scrapbook bundles and the ribbon is from my winnings on a blog candy!

I made this card for another kindergarten aide who recently became a U.S. citizen! She's such a happy person and is always smiling! That gave me the perfect idea for a card to congratulate her! Not your typical congratulations card but it's "her"! The paper and ink are SU and the stamp is an old Heidi Swapp stamp I've had for a while!

Okay, now I'm off to bed! I actually have a day off tomorrow but am going in anyway. The kindergarten is putting on a Memorial Day celebration and my "little friend" is playing the part of Yankee Doodle! She's the cutest and giggliest Yankee Doodle ever!

Enjoy my creations.........

This is a great masculine card...simple and to the point (do they ever really appreciate all the do-dads us gals do?). Thanks for playing Michelle!
