Card Giveaway Day

Hi everyone! Today is card giveaway day and the card I have made is the newly released image Back To School from Squigglefly.



Even though the image is called Back To School, I think it could also be used for getting out of school, or graduation! Send it to a teacher who is barely hanging on until the school year is over! I even made up a poem for this occasion that I'll share with you, but I'm warning you poetry is not my strong suit!

Close up the books and clean out the desks
No more lesson plans or grading tests
Take time to enjoy your summer break
You probably need it for sanity’s sake! LOL!

Plus this week is Teacher Appreciation week so it would be a great one for that too. There is no sentiment on this card so who ever wins it can tell me if they want something on the inside.
I think it would be really fun to have little doodles and things like "Ann & Keith 4 ever" written all over the notebook. Remember doing that in school?

I colored it with copic markers and used some Stampin Up designer paper. Three shiny red snaps on the side and some red gingham ribbon complete it! The card base is black, but you can't really tell that because the designer paper covers it all on the front.

Anyway, if you would like to win this card all you have to do is leave a comment on today's post and tomorrow random.org will pick a winner!

I don't know if you've visited squigglefly lately, but they've added several new images besides the one a day releases. Lots of wedding stuff and a darling sporty girl! You really need to go check them out! Have a wonderful day, and thanks for stopping by!

Great card, Holly. The end of school is quickly approaching. I haven't given any time to teacher gifts or cards yet. This one would get me headed in the right direction. Would love to win it!

I got my stamp today and thought how perfect on Teacher Appreciation week. I am a teacher and I am counting the days. I love your poem. It is perfect. I love the way you colored the card. It is so much fun getting the new stamps everyday. Thanks for sharing how you color them. You are a great inspiration.

What a great card! I need to make one just like it for Tak's teacher. Many carpal surgeries this year and those kids have zero empathy.
