My boys enjoyed their first few days back at school this week and I got through it o.k too! I’m a bit nervous about the year ahead because my oldest son is in grade 5 and everyone’s been telling us how important a year it is as these are the grades that will follow him into high school! High school??? Yikes. Ok. He has 2 whole years before high school. We also have a new principal this year and there will be lots of changes. Hopefully all for the better. I’m staying optimistic!
As for my card today, I decided to make a masculine teacher thank you card. See? Optimism. 🙂 I drew this image to make school cards and notecards etc. What is it about a grouping of pencils and new paper that inspires me? It always has; I used to love sorting my pencils for school and making neat stacks of my papers and notebooks. I believe it has to do with the anticipation of possibilities; of a story untold. Do any of you feel the same when you see a stack of pencils or paper?
Doesn’t she have a lovely style?! I’ve kept the offset circle for the main image, and the CAS style of her card, and replaced the ribbon with the strip of hole punched paper. I used the same color palette of white, kraft and green .
