Thank You Teacher

Good Thursday morning!
I finally found a few moments to myself to make a card for this week's
MIM with Melissa: Ink Blending on Colored Cardstock.

I've been on grandma duty for the week. SIL has been promoted and family will soon be
moving to So Cal. It's been a busy week!
3 children, 3 lunches, to and from different schools, practice, gymnastics,
 and one with a cold.
Was it this busy raising my own? How quickly it's all behind. 
But... new memories to make, love to give, and receive... and for some reason
I seem to have endless patience, (thank God!). Anyway, 
Back to the card...

Melissa's video was to use colored cardstock, emboss our image and ink blend over
the versamarked image.

While going through my PTI stamps and dies, I came across Betsy's sweet apple 
from the What the Doodle series. Using pretty much Melissa's card layout, the rest was easy.
The card will go to one of the grandkids' teachers. School will be ending soon.
Not sure where the year has gone!
Hope I didn't bore you too much. It's so nice to be in the craft room, even for a 
short while!
