Summer Reading

What a crazy week it's been! End-of-the-school year activities and parties for Shannon all week, plus a really busy week at work, have kept us all busy. I made a bunch of thank you cards for various tours and activities that Shannon's Daisy troop participated in recently, but I didn't get any pictures taken of them. It was one of those situations when we were practically crafting as we went out the door to a meeting or party.

The card to the right is for Shannon's teacher. This week on the Crafty Secrets' forum, Lori challenged us to use text on our project. This dear little sheep from CS's Booklovers set has started her summer reading list already.

The text background is a segment of Wind in the Willows from October Afternoon's Night Light collection. I cut the scalloped circle using a Nestabilities die in my Big Shot machine. I colored all of the images with Copic markers, and popped up the sheep with foam dimensionals.

Here's to a wonderfully relaxing summer vacation full of fun creative pursuits!
