Tuesday Trigger

I am entering this card in the Moxie Fab World Tuesday Trigger.    Their photo was a dining room with a black and white leafy rug and yellow cushioned chairs.  I immediately thought of my Impressabilities Flourish  to ink the background.  I then used the yellow from the chairs for the flowers (Hero Arts & Craft Lounge stamps).  The yellow card stock is from Memory Box.
I am pleased with the results.  Although it's for an anniversary I didn't want to add a sentiment to the front so still have the inside to finish:)

Stepping stones

These stones were made for retiring staff members.

This one was for a colleague who taught Gr. 1 for many years.  She was VERY into teaching her students about nature.  Every winter she took her class up to feed the mountain goats on the Salmo-Creston.  The students were enthralled by the size and beauty of them.  This stone was to remind her of one of the 'great adventures'.

These two were for colleagues who enjoyed gardening.  I know my photography could use some help, but I hope you enjoy these creations.  I am excited to take another course at the end of August on actual 'stained glass'.  My cutting skills will have to be honed, but I am looking forward to it:)
