notecards for the principal

Good morning everyone! I hope your Thursday has gotten off to a good start! Today is a fun day for us because Kyler has his first band concert tonight AND he and his schoolmates get to perform in the new music building at the college. It is a 600 seat theater..that should be really neat!! I must not forget my camera!

On to the stamped project. I am trying to get some more projects done and thought a desk set would be nice so I used another of Lauren's templates (only $5) and made this stationary set. There are 12 note cards (4 1/4" x 5 1/2") with envelopes in the box. While the photo stinks and you can't tell there is a cover made with a Clear Card Sheet from Cornish Heritage Farms. This is probably the absolute BEST acetate I have ever used! If I get the chance and the weather cooperates I'll retake the picture for you guys as this is really a nice set.

So, the main card stock is SU! Kraft, the patterned paper is ??? (sorry!), the red is Riding Hood Red, and the chipboard pieces are from KI Memories. I didn't do any actual stamping on this but the letters are from the Hippie Chick Alphabet ran through my Big Shot with textured Riding Hood Red card stock. I will most likely finish this with a big ribbon bow on the front and present the gift tomorrow. I hope the recipient likes it!

Tomorrow is Friday and really...that kinda finishes my time for getting projects done. Hopefully I can get just two or three more little things done today (LITTLE...had to say that to remind myself to not go crazy) and then I'll feel much better!

Have a super day everyone! Oh, and what do you think of my 3-column blog? I'm going to see if I can dress it up a little with a fun background of some sort so maybe you'll see something different the next time you come back...LOL! I'm off...catch ya all later!

Please be sure to check out THIS post and send a card to a family that needs some support right now.
