Schools Out for Summer Blog Hop

The end of another school year is upon us and that means saying good-bye to school friends and teachers plus no more early morning roll call and yelling, "Hurry up or you'll miss the bus!" or "Where did you put your backpack?" or "What do you mean you left your lunch on the counter? Well I guess you'll have to go hungry today then."

Now it's time to relax by the pool, take a family vacation and wait for that inevitable question, "Mom, when does school start? I'm bored."

But to get your summer vacation started before the question sets in and to help celebrate the end of another school year, Lissa Marie with a bunch of crafty friends has put together a delightful "Schools Out for Summer" blog hop.

Enjoy all the wonderful ideas these people have come up with to celebrate the end of another busy and fun school year. This is a two day hop with different projects both days so enjoy today and come back to enjoy tomorrow.

Lorby's Project:

I made my children's teachers lots of things to end the school year and I've featured them in my blogs over the past few weeks such as a chocolate filled box but for today's hop I want to showcase the Thank You card I made.

The owl comes from the GIVE A HOOT file from SVG Attic.
 I'm sorry but I can't remember the name of the stamp but there is a whole set I bought last year just for making teachers' cards.
 I used brown card stock for the card and then used orange over it so the branch is more dimensional. I added glitter glue here and there just to give the card some sparkle.

Thanks for stopping by today and I look forward to seeing you tomorrow. Your next stop is Cicily Lesher.

  4. How cute! Love the owl. Great minds must think alike! LOL

  5. Such a cute "thank you" card :) Owls are such a cute thing to use anyways, but I think it ties in nicely because they're always known to be so wise and wearing graduation caps. Lol. Great job!
