Apple of My Eye card

 


I hope all of you had a wonderful Mother's Day. My beautiful sister flew in from Portland and one of my brothers graduated from college, so it was busy, but joyous!

Today I have a card for the Bitten By the Bug 2 blog. This week's challenge was to create a card or project focused on anything for school (awards day, field trips, teacher gifts, class parties, school plays or concerts, etc.). 

I decided to use one of the stamps that come with the set of the month, the Free to Be Me stamp set, and the Frame of Mind cartridge. Once I had the idea sketched, it came together very quickly. I hope my son's teacher likes it!
