Schools Out for Summer Blog Hop - Day 2

I hope you enjoyed all the projects from yesterday and I hope you have been enjoying the projects from Day 2 also.

On the last day of school, my daughter came home with a blank note card and a stamped addressed envelope of another child in her class. I was puzzled so I asked her about it. The child's mother had given one to each child in the class so that this summer the children can write a note about what they are doing and send it to her child. WHAT A BRILLIANT IDEA! What child doesn't love to get mail?

I took this idea and when one step further by letting my daughter make her own card that could be given and I also made a card to be given out.

My daughter's card:
She stamped and cut out the flowers by herself. I was impressed at how well she cut the flowers out. I helped her rip the paper for the middle section but she decided what she would draw. We left the inside blank for the other child to write their note to my daughter.

My card:
I thought the child could draw a little picture on the upper part of the card and write the note on the inside. The stamp is a circus themed stamp from Michael's that says "Have fun!".

Thanks for being part of this hop. It was fun putting our thinking caps on and coming up with creative cards to end the school year. Hugs from Jearise in Lorby's World.

  1. That's a very clever idea of your daughter's classmate -- to encourage summertime communication. I remember when my daughter started a new school, her new classmates held a summertime welcome party for Emily -- perfect! I hope your kids get the same warm welcome in their new community! :)

  3. aweee sweet. Yes I have a crafty one too.. I just love how she takes it upon herself to make the same projects I do but yet she won't pay no attention to me or craft with me when I do. lol. Tell her she has talent! Thanks for posting with all you have going on, I know you are sooo busy, I feel guilty having you with us.

  4. Aww, what super cute cards :) Your daughter is such a little artist! I love the torn edges of the paper. It adds so much character that I'm definitely going to try doing.
