A Perky Plant

Hello friends!  I can't believe it's Thursday already!  I only have one week left of my summer vacation before I go back to work!  My new classroom is all set for my new kiddos and I'm a little unsettled about this whole move of our 5th graders to the Middle School.  But I have to make the best of it!  On to my card.

Yesterday was my aunt's birthday and of course a card did not get in the mail!  I have been making mostly birthday cards, so it's not like I didn't have one ready to mail....I just didn't get one mailed.  I did call her and wish her a happy birthday so she knew I was thinking of her.  So as I sat down last night to make something, I thought I'd make her a new card...something just for her.  I started by straightening out my "new" stamps that had not been put away and I forgot about this quirky little set from Paper Smooches that just makes me smile.
This set is called Perky Plants (such a great name for this set!) and the sentiment is from Sentiment Sampler, also from Paper Smooches.  I wanted to use some vibrant colors, so I went with Lauderdale paper pack from Basic Grey and Lucky Limeade and Melon Mambo cardstocks from SU.  I colored the image with copics and added some Star Dust Stickles to mimic water sprinkling out of the watering can.  I made the main image a tag and used some PTI ribbon to tie it off.  I added the two melon glitter dots to finish off the card, which follows the Sweet Sunday Sketch for this week.  I cannot believe I finally got a card done in time for this challenge!  I'm usually late using them!
Hope you enjoyed this cute little card!  I just adore it and I hope it makes my aunt smile when she gets it!  Thanks for stopping by!

Can't wait to see you on Saturday!

My room is ready but I'm not-lots of curriculum to get familiar with and IEPS to go through!

Hey Mona!!!! This is an adorable little "smoochie" birthday smile for your dear Auntie. I have looked at these and loved so many of the fun creations that I've seen with them, but haven't taken the plunge to buy some yet. Love your vibrant choice of paper and the great color combo on the image. You must be so close to closing out your summer and heading back through the school doors. Hope your summer has been a great one. Hugs~Michele
