The card that inspired the shells card...

Over the past few days I have been working on some little gifts for Campbell's teachers. This is his last week of preschool (for the second time in his life!) Although all the families pitched in and got both teachers something from the children, when you have a stash of craft stuff, it is hard to pass up the opportunity to make a little something too.
I think I have already mentioned the fact that the NZ summer mini catalogue was all but missed by me - something about renovations and relocations, that just don't allow for a whole lot of craft time! Apologies in advance - the next couple of posts will be featuring product that came and went with that mini, and the coordinating, and now retired, in colours. The Ginger Blossom papers worked so well for the gifts for Hayden's teachers, that I had to pull them out again.

Here is one of the cards I made. It was the layout inspiration for the Shells card in the previous post. A little bit of 'rock and roll' and stamping off, to mix up the colours on the stamps, punch them out, and that is about it.

As mentioned, the colours are retired river rock, and groovy guava, with a bit of vanilla and ruby red thrown in. Apart from the greeting, all the stamps are from the also retired 'Live your Dream' set. That set includes the quote 'Go Confidently in the Direction of Your Dreams - Henry David Thoreau'. What could be more perfect than that for someone who's job it is to help shape our children?
