Last day of School

104 days of summer vacation, and school comes along just to end it. Yes, this is the delightful tune my son just won’t stop singing. (from a cartoon called Phineas & Ferb) Today was the last day of school. I wanted to make my son’s teacher a cute card that would remind her of him. He is always reading and she knows of his love for books. I thought this image from coloring page Tuesdays, by Elizabeth O. Dulemba would be perfect. He agreed to let me use flowers on the card but wanted to make sure the worm was a boy. lol, he’s very insistent.

Of course I wanted to make the most of my final crafting days before I start school again, so these are the challenges I’d like to enter this card in:

Sweet Sketch Wednesday – Sketch

The Cupcake Craft Challenge – Boy, oh Boy (masculine card)

Bearlymine Challenge – Anything goes

Going Grey- Anything goes

The Paper Shelter – Punches and dies

Southern Girls – Anything goes


In this second photo you could see the MS branch punch I used on the top and inside of card.


And here is the inside along with a cute poem I saw online by Amy Fuchs. was short on space so could not include it inside.


I colored in the image with copic inks, and used all SU paper’s/ cardstock/ The Punch is MS branch and Spellbinders dies. Flowers are from wild orchid. I popped up the image on some dimensionals and used Sookwang Score-tape and my scotch ATG to stick it all together.

Hope you enjoyed and I will see y’all soon ~ Angela
