Both cards shown today I made to be given from Declan. One to his teacher and one to the paraprofessional (teacher's aide) in the classroom. I truly appreciate the work these ladies do. They are truly loving and wonderful. I always have said that I take good care of my Declan (and put up with him! lol!) because he is my son and I love him. But the teachers that go in and work with children like Declan every day, year after year are angels. It is not easy. Especially in a classroom such as Declan's that is referred to as "intensive special needs". Anyhow, I do try to take advantage of opportunities to let them know that they are appreciated. So I made these cards to send in with little goodies for them.
I am also trying to use paper that is not neccessarily my favorite. Yep, I am talking about that again. I tend to prefer paper with stripes or swirls. Paper with fun colors. Particularly pinks, greens... Not brown and gray. And quite honestly I am not good at making cards that aren't girly girly. Yes, it's true...I wore a dress and knee socks every day until I was 10. I hated gym class. And loved Barbies. And Cabbage Patch Kids. And Strawberry Shortcake.
OOOOOPS! I so easily get sidetracked. It takes me so long to type up these posts because I go off on tangents...realize it and delete....so although a post may not seem long...it took me 45 minutes to type delete....type...delete....repeat. LOL! But for today I am leaving my excessive babble....just to give you a glimpse into the mind of a fruitcake with markers! :)
See there...another tangent! So anyhow, what I am getting to is I don't really like that brown leafy paper. But I am trying to be better at using at least most of the paper in these pads. not just half. I have even been using the pieces that do not have a pattern on them The scallopped rectangle around Billy is some. So are the hearts. I find with these detailed punches that it is really hard to punch through cardstock. But it punches through this paper fine.
