From the bottom of my {Heart}!

Our Principal and Assistant Principal will be leaving our school at the end of the school year. I have really had a lot of fun working with both of them as I have volunteered with the PTA and in the kid's classes. I was in charge of getting the going away gifts, so I volunteered to make the cards to go along with them. Who would have guessed? LOL! Anway, I was short on time so I kept things super simple, but really wanted to add this quote that I found the other day.

I computer generated the sentiment and printed it out onto white cardstock. Then I carefully die-cut it using Nestabilities. The heart is from this stamp set and coordinating punch. That is the only stamping that this card has! I really wanted to try and stamp a smaller heart over the large word "heart" on the sentiment, but I couldn't chance it not looking right and having to start all over. I will have to try it again sometime. I actually have two extra quotes printed out, but I had spaced things incorrectly when I was printing them, so I couldn't use the nestablities using only one sheet of paper. Thus, I have two extras and I can play around with those

The cards are almost identical. I used two different backgrounds using paper from Pink Patterns. I added some ribbon and buttons and called it good! They were a hit. The assistant principal said that I should *go into business*! I guess even the simplest of cards are sure to impress! I am off to create dinner! Thanks for fluttering by!
