thank you

A few weeks ago, one of my religious ed students and I had a conversation about rainbow bracelets and the friendship bracelets from my daughter’s generation. Last Sunday, Amanda came into class with a rainbow bracelet she made just for me. I wanted to let her know what her kindness means to me, so I thought a fun card in bright colors would be just right for a note.

My inspiration for the card came from two places – a sketch from Studio Calico’s Sunday Sketch based on a layout by Shanna Noel and Dawn’s MIM#139, which is to create a square frame with Papertrey stamps. The arrow from tag-its #11 was used for the frame.

Thanks so much for taking time from your day to visit my blog.

Oh my goodness. This is an adorable card! I LOVE squares and patchwork and then filling it. Love the arrow frame you created in one square... So cuuuuute! Such a thoughtful thing for your student to give you. You asked about a stamp I used on my post Papertrey Ink MIM #140- the stamp that says, "Keeping you in thoughts and prayers" It is a small wooden stamp I got many many years ago at Michaels and it does not say who made it. All it says is 2001 PSX. I wish I could help more! Hobby Lobby carries a good many stamps that have bible verses and faith words. Maybe they might have something similar.
