Friday was the last day of school here! I honestly cannot believe how fast this past school year has gone. It seems like I just dropped my daughter off for her first day of Kindergarten!!! She did amazingly well on her report card and is definitely ready for Grade 1!

When people would ask her if she was excited for summer and school to be over she would always answer "yes and no." She would answer this way because she was happy that summer was coming but sad that she wouldn't see her friends everyday. I decided to make some cards that she could give to her friends. I used the set "Sweet Scoops", which I was so happy to finally be able to use. Inside the card I typed up a little note saying "I would like to get together over the summer for a playdate sometime. My phone number is XXX-XXXX and my Mommy's e-mail address is XXXX. I hope to hear from you." I had Samantha write her friend's name on the top and she signed the card on the bottom. She was so happy to pass them out to her friends and felt much better about school coming to an end. =)

I then took the same layout that I used for the above card and made some for the Grade 2 class that I did my internship in. Inside I wrote a note "I am so proud of all the hard word you did in Grade 2. I hope that you have a wonderful summer and get to do a lot of fun things. I hope that I get the chance to see you in Grade 3." I also went to McDonalds and got 17 gift cards and had $1.12 put on each so they could each get a free vanilla cone.

Are you ready for a sneak peek from the Stampin' Up! 2010-2011 Idea Book and Catalog being released on July 1st?

It is definitely one of my favorite stamp sets from the new catalog. It is called Baby Bundle and it is a set of 16! I checked out Splitcoast Stampers and found this card that Sandi had done. (I am still awaiting my pre-order package to arrive =) ) Isn't this card the cutest???

Mary Fish from Stampin' Pretty (a great blog to get wonderful ideas from; I love all the projects she comes up with) came up with a beautiful card using the new Stampin' Up! Core Colors, which will be available July 1! This colorful card highlights the new additions to the Stampin' Up! Core Color Collection. Meet (from left to right): Cajun Craze, Early Espresso, Daffodil Delight, Cherry Cobbler and Marina Mist:
