Back to School!

With school starting again, my creativity has come to a standstill. Well - at least my scrapbooking creativity. My "free time" is being spent grading papers and writing lesson plans. Oh well, such is life. (Althought I did hang up some vinyl in my classroom that I will post soon.) For all of you faithful bloggers, here is a card I made a few months ago. The picture is not so great - what was I thinking, but I love the card. I have to admit, I scraplifted this card. Usually, I do not do a lot with Oriental inspired themes but I love this set of acrylic stamps from Hero Arts. They are called "Four Dolls" and are so cute to play with. I stamped the doll and the fan on white cardstock and then colored them with colored pencils. I then cut them out and attached them with pop dots. On the long strip of pink, I stamped some matching flowers in white ink and colored in some of the flowers. I attached everything to some flower cardstock and thought it still needed something so I stamped some smaller flowers, cut them out, and attached them under the quote. The quote says, "It's always GREAT being with you!" This quote was printed on my printer. I sent this to my friend Mandy who lives in Wisconsin. Even though she lives far away, she is always there for me and I appreciate her friendship more than I can ever say. Happy Stamping everyone!
