Thank You, My Student

Hi again! 

It has been a busy, but productive day. This morning I did a little hopping (saw some cute banners for a pediatric unit), finished this card, and then went to the crafty stores to get a new i-rock since mine didn't work any more. The only reason I bought another one...I received some gems and stencils for Christmas that I wanted to use. If it breaks or burns out again, I don't think I will replace it.

 I made this card for a student who gave me a beautiful picture frame yesterday as a late Christmas present.
Materials:
Making Memories ~ Black and White pad
blue and white cardstock
3 Birds on Parade cartridge ~ flower bird (p. 49) cut at 1 3/4"
Spellbinders ~ Lacey Circles
Winter Woodland cartridge ~ circle cut at 2 3/4" and 2 1/2"
black and white flowers
blue and silver gems
 Challenges:

Here are the goodies I picked up today.
 DCWV paper pads ~ $3.97 each (regular $14.99)
Martha Stewart Valentine's pad ~ 40% off coupon (regular $4.99)
Studio G paper pad ~ 60 cents
embossing powder  ~ $2.21 after 40% off coupon
green and black flowers ~ .97 cents (regular $2.99)
white flowers ~ $1.19 (regular $3.99)
ribbons ~ 40 cents to $1.00
Scrapbooking magazine ~ $1.27 after 40% off coupon

Joanns is offering 20% off for teachers this weekend. Who could pass up shopping?!?!

Take Care,
Georgiana
