Well, today is the DAY! Christina begins her first day as a teacher, the first day of her new career. Isn’t it exciting to see your kids get started on a new journey? I can’t wait to hear all about the kid’s reactions to their new classroom. They are high school students so I don’t believe they are going to come in and show a lot of excitement but I hope a few do. 

I want you all to know how much I appreciate your support for Christina’s class over the past couple of weeks. I knew crafters were special people but both Christina and I were just in AWE of how giving you are. To those who sent her cards and words of encouragement….THANK YOU SO MUCH!!! She has them displayed around her home. They are a treasure to her. 

I will report back how things went on Thursday when I will be back with a new video featuring the See a Silhouette Suite.

QUOTE OF THE DAY – “Like a precious family heirloom, freedom is not just ours to enjoy, but to treasure, protect, and pass on to future generations.” –– Os Guinness

I hope you enjoyed the three cards I had for you today! Which is your favorite? I thought they all turned out lovely. I was just blow away by all the things I could do with these simple dies and folders. As I said, it’s a hidden gem you won’t want to miss!

Make it a GREAT Tuesday everyone! See you back here on Thursday for more stamping inspiration!
