Tiddly Inks - Fabulous Inky Friday

Well, I made it, today is the last day of school.  It was touch and go there for awhile, I never thought I was going to get all of my paperwork done or finish cleaning up my classroom.  But I have and now summer vacation can officially begin!  As exciting as it is to be on vacation the end of the school year is always bittersweet.  After a year of watching my little guys grow I then have to send them on to another grade and another teacher.  I'm always proud and excited with all of the progress the kids make, how they grow and what changes occur in a year.  But, all the same, I miss them when the school year ends and summer begins.

Speaking of summer today I made a card for my nephew.  His summer is beginning as well.  He has just graduated from eighth grade and is now officially a high schooler.  Last night I attended his moving up ceremony and it was very nice, every kid received a certificate and a pin.  I wanted to mark this occasion with a little something so I made my nephew a card and gave him a "candy bouquet", a Pinterest find of course.  I wasn't there when he opened it but my sister was happy with his "score" of candy.  His younger sister wanted some but, that just wasn't happening!

For the card I made for my nephew I used the image, Geekatude.  I thought this was a great image for the occasion, since it wasn't a high school graduation but was school related.  The red hair is because my nephew is a red head.

Materials Used:
Copic Markers
MS Border Punch
SU Sentiment Stamp
Spellbinder's dies

Well, that's it for me.  I'm off to finally take a breath now that the school year is over.  Of course I've already brought a pile of things home to get ready for next school year.  I just have to find a place to keep them until my mind is ready to even think about next year.

Don't forget the rest of the Tiddly Inks Design Team have projects for you to check out as well.  Just stop by the challenge blog to see the fabulous projects they have created.
