School's out for summer...


I'm so sad! My super-grown-up daughter has her last day of preschool tomorrow! We LOOOVVEEE her preschool teachers and wish that they could be her teachers until high school! I made some LARGE cards for them so that all of the moms could sign them in appreciation of everything they've done for our kids. These cards are made with a full sheet of cardstock, folded in half. I used vintage illustrations from a Mother Goose book that was published in 1941! (I am a total book hoarder, so I felt REALLY guilty about defacing this book. It is marked up on a lot of the pages and appears to have some water damage on the bottom of most of the pages, so I wasn't feeling too guilty!)
Kristina's color challenge completely inspired the cards I made because of the bold, primary colors. Seemed so appropriate for teacher cards!

Here are the cards I made:

Love the eclectic look you created with the vintage illustration combined with more bright and modern items. Great job!
