It's a great day to be a Bison!

I'm taking over the blog today to share this card I made showcasing my Bison pride!

I started subbing this week at the school and I wanted to let the teachers know how much I appreciate all their hard work. My husband is a teacher and a coach, and I know the sacrifices he makes in order to do his best job. Now that my daughter is in school - how is she in kindergarten already?!?; I'm realizing how much love the teachers give our children as well. I used to take baked goods to school - now I'm tired so they just get a card... probably not a very good trade-off. :)

To start with, I embossed the base of my card with a notebook paper folder - how perfect can you get? I love my little Sizzix texture boutique - it's so handy and perfect for cards!

Our school colors are green and gold (if you hadn't guessed that already). I sponged the outside of my card with gold ink, then added my Bison pride sentiment. This is a stamp from the same set of fund raiser stamps I shared on an earlier project - but I just can't get over how amazing they are! I know this set will get many, many uses as my children continue with school. Check out all the awesome stamps Victorine Originals & now Raisin Boat have to offer - you will definitely find something you can't resist!

After my sentiment was on (I used the MISIT - there is no way I could have stamped it so well over the embossed lines without it), I added some baker's twine (representing the red line on the notebook paper). Then I had fun with all the green & gold I could find. I sponged some chipboard Cs and some stars, then added some adhesive epoxy cirlces.

Thanks for checking out my latest project! What are you working on right now? I have two crops coming up in October - I can't wait to get caught up on some of my scrapbooking pages.
