The End is in Sight

Can you believe it? I graduate on Saturday. Yes-Saturday. I'm still in shock. I only have two more days left of student teaching. I'm going to miss my students so much. But hopefully I get a job soon.

I sat down this weekend to make some thank you cards for various people I have worked with. I just can't spent the money to buy a store bought card. You won't be surprise.....but I used alcohol inks again. They are just so fun and easy. I'm in love with my new big snowflake stamp. I got it for cheap at Michaels a few weeks ago. I had a little snowflake background stamp that is way too difficult to stamp with, but I like this one.

For all of the cards I did the reverse embossing technique. You can tell I need to invest in some more "thank you" stamps. I almost always use the stamps at crop night at my scrapbook store. I really love how all of these turned out. The colors were great, and I love seeing the design when I iron off the embossing powder.

Did I mention I splurged on Small Business Saturday? My amazing local camera store had a great deal on a Canon Rebel with two lenses. Needless to say I am in heaven right now. All the Christmas stuff has been my subjects so far. Needless to say you get a peek at my favorite shot.

We're hunkering down for Winter Storm Caesar. So far we've gotten an inch and the lawn is covered. The snow is supposed to pick up for the football game tonight! I'm sure you will be seeing some winter pics soon.
