What William Made...

William came home from school today running a fever, so I haven't finished my tip sheet yet (plus a super dee duper welcome post to our new rock star designers!!!) I'd already finished this post, so it seemed a good time to post, please pray he gets better, thank you, tomorrow looks like it will be a "snuggle day"!William's kindergarten teacher had a birthday this past week. He made her this card all by himself! (Well, besides me cutting the mat and helping to glue it down straight!) He had very specific ideas about what he wanted: stamps, "She'd like flowers ("Buds and Vases")...roses ("A Year of Flowers"), and a bee ("A Beautiful Life")..do you have a vine?" He drew his own vine and added the leaves, then colored the rest with my Copics. I told him usually it's best to choose his base color from one of the colors he used on his images, so he wanted Turquoise Sea. Finally he said "I want it to look like I sewed it", so we pulled out "In Stitches". He also went through my bling and said he'd like to make a little pearl trail behind the bee "like you do on your cards". There you have it, he even stamped the inside and signed his name (didn't get a pic) Come on teachers, you can tell me: isn't that the kind of thing you keep forever??

His teacher loooved it. Said "the talent runs in the family!" :)

Have a great day!

PS TIP: When you press too hard with your Copics, it makes little splatters all over your paper!! ;P
