Believe


Hello everybody! Surprise -- I'm back already! Can't believe I've posted 3 cards in one week. That's a record for me.

Today's card was created for the Mix It Up Monday Challenge at Gina K Designs Stamp TV. We were supposed to create something for Back to School. My sister, Cecilia, is a Special Ed teacher in West Virginia, and I like to send her a card at the beginning of each school year. It's good to let her know I'm thinking of her when everything is so hectic getting her classroom in order.

For the background, I used a Reverse Confetti Cut called ABC Cover Panel, and I just love it. So versatile! You can add any sentiment on top; I used a stamp set from Gina K Designs called Keep Calm, illustrated by Beth Silaika. I thought the message was appropriate for student OR teacher this time of year.

Cecilia LOVES red, so I kept the colors red and white. She ought to appreciate that! Just about every card I send her is red and white!

The heart on the card is also from the Keep Calm stamp set.

Here's a picture of me with my sister. Love her!



Thank you for stopping by today. I appreciate your comments and visits VERY much, and I hope to see you again real soon ~
