ECS

Morning friends! It has been forever since I've posted a card for you guys.

One of Kyler's school's Parent Association leadership asked me to make some thank you cards for them so it has taken me forever to make them but this is what I came up with. Our school colors are purple and gold and our mascot is the eagle.

I used Photoshop to make the eagle almost like a watermark then printed several of them out. I used Baroque Motif for the swirl on the background and popped up each layer of the ECS medallion. I just layered a piece of whisper white card stock on the inside for an easy writing area as well. Then I thought to myself...she asked me for thank you's and I made a general card so I really need to see if she wants a thank you sentiment on the inside as well.

I've been asked to make some "we have a new address" postcards for a friend so I'll be working on those making prototypes over the next couple of days AND with Valentine's Day rapidly approaching I need to get to work on making stuff for Todd and the boys. Lots of stuff to do!

Kyler is headed back to school today after a weekend and Monday of coughing...he has bronchitis just like Jon did a couple of weeks ago. So far this morning he sounds better but he's only been up about 20 minutes so we'll see. He's only going for a half day though as all that coughing sure can wear ya out. This is definitely one of the nice things of a small Christian school...we have lots of flexibility.

Anyway, enjoy your day ladies! I hope you see God's love wherever you look today!
