Advice from a Tree




Hello there, I'm popping in with a card for the Card Creations Week:  Chevron Challenge.  My card was inspired by Maile Belles card here.  I loved the color palette she used and she quite often uses silk ribbon through her buttons.  I love how it looks!  I used Verve's Borderline stamps for my card.  Nice CAS birthday card to add to my stash!

On Monday night, Collin had his school concert.  All of the pictures from the concert turned out blurry, but I realized I never shared cards from his Valentine's Day party.  He has two teachers this year and I love them both.  Ryan and Jonathon had the same teachers too. It is so nice how well they know Collin and our family.

When I came into Mrs. Lawrence's class, she had this saying on the wall.  I thought it was fabulous and had to snap a picture of it.

After the concert Monday, Collin didn't want his picture taken with Mrs. Lawrence, but she wouldn't let him sneak away.  I love this picture!

And here are a few pictures from Valentine's Day...crafts - a bookmark, a fortune teller paper craft and a spoon race.  The perfect party!
