What a difference a year makes! Last year at this time, my family was struggling to make it to the end of the school year. My daughter and her teacher had a bit of a personality clash, there was always an unhealthy amount of homework every evening and on weekends, and most days she would come home from school crying and exhausted. It was a miserable time for all of us, but somehow we survived.
When the new catalog came out last year, one of the sets that caught my eye was Words of Truth. I figured if we had another school year like that, I could make her some encouraging cards to tuck in her lunchbox. It was one of the first sets I purchased!
Fortunately, Bella changed schools this year and has a wonderful teacher. Miss Craig will be getting an awesome end of year gift, because we just LOVE her to pieces. I think we'll all be sad to see this school year come to an end. And sadly, Words of Truth never saw any ink.
Since I am trying to show a little inky love to my retiring stamp sets, I used a sketch from Freshly Made Sketches to whip up this quick card. The background paper is from the Go Wild Designer Series Paper Stack which has been a favorite among my customers. It's retiring, so you'll definitely want to add it to your next order. I flicked some of the Gold Wink of Stella onto the Melon Mambo card stock to give it some texture. And finally the Gold Foil Paper and Black candy dots pull everything together to make this card POP.
You only have a few weeks left to stock up on your retiring favorites.
Here is a direct link to the Retired Products in my ONLINE STORE.
You'll also find a complete list of supplies for this card at the end of this post.
