Goodbye, Mr. Torres

One of Mason's teachers has resigned and today is his last day. This was sad news for us, as Mason has enjoyed being in his class... his first male teacher! I created a quick card to wish him well... it only took about 15 minutes to make this card - from designing it to actually creating it! That doesn't happen very often, but everything just seemed to fall into place on this one. Love it when that happens. In any case, here's what I made:

I am starting to really like these little Library Clips! Especially for masculine cards. It was so hard to refrain from putting some ribbon on here somewhere, but once I popped that clip on, the need for ribbon just vanished! The tree image was colored lightly with Stampin' Pastels and a dauber. And since the card base is so dark, I attached another piece of Naturals Ivory to the inside so I could write him a note.

Have a great weekend, everyone!

This is a great masculine card and that sentiment is perfect for a life-change such as your son's teacher is now journeying through. Love it!

That is wonderful! I struggle with masculine cards too, but you did great!

Very nice. I love that stamp set. There are several in the new catalog that kind of "go with" this one! I can't wait to get them!
