Last week was the end of the school year for my eight grandchildren. I visited the oldest ones and we wrote thank you cards to the teachers and staff. I was amazed at their sentiments of appreciation. Although I'm a retired teacher, I resisted the urge to edit their spellings, knowing that those would be overlooked by their dear teachers at the Christian school as authentic messages definitely from their students.
Then I realized I needed to increase my supply before the next unexpected occasion. One of the cards my grandsons had used had a very old stamp image from Close To My Heart called "Uptown Girls." I decided to revisit that stamp set and I made these two simple cards:
I made them with glittery flowers and red gingham ribbon. This first one has a button tied with waxy flax.
I'm sharing these cards with the following challenges:
