You're the apple of my eye!

Hello everyone!  Can you believe summer is almost over?  Neither can I!  Here in the south, the children are even back to school!  I decided it would be fun to send my Sunday School children some happy mail.  And so, I made 14 of these to wish them all a happy school year. 

I used the sentiment "You're the apple of my eye" from the My Pink Stamper set called "School Days".  And then inside the cards I wrote  "...and you're the apple of God's eye too!"

I created the background using a graph stamp from Impression Obsession.  At first, I tried stamping it in black but I found the color to be a bit too harsh.  So, instead I used the Hero Arts Shadow Ink in Wet Cement.  MUCH better. 

Since all the cards were going to be the same, I stamped all my backgrounds first and cut out all the pieces.  Then, I just put them together in an assembly line.  Easy peasy!

And as you can see in the upper right hand corner, having a little snack while you're working never hurts to keep you motivated.

Now, I'm working on a baby album for my niece.  She is due to arrive any day now and my family is SO excited!!  Finally, I get to buy some PINK! :)

Have a wonderful day!
