Just For Fun--Retro Sketches


Hello, friends:}

It's been a LONG time since I've been able to just create for fun....but I got about an hour in yesterday to create these cards. It was fun just to craft.

I tutor a student, and on Monday I met with his teacher and principal. I wanted to know what I needed to do to help him succeed in class and on the standardized test. **It's been four years since I was in the classroom; things have changed, so I wanted to make sure I knew the rules/etc. I created these school themed cards as a "thank you". 
I used the Retro Sketches challenge as my inspiration for the this card. The papers are from My Mind's Eye School Daze collection {available HERE from the Ribbon Carousel}. The sentiment is from my Paper Smooches Smarty Pants stamp set. And the ribbon is available HERE from the RC. LOVE how this turned out! 
That's it for me today! Be sure to stop by later this week...I'm sharing some CAS cards using Momenta product! LOVE:) 

Thanks for stopping by! Be blessed:}

These are just *so* sweet, Sav! I think the papers you used, and that very cool ribbon, are PERFECT! It must have felt weird being back at school, but you're such a good tutor to care that much. :)
