O is for Ostrich


Hello, and welcome once again, dear friends, to my blogging for comments portion of the evening! ;D Not really, I'm just tired and goofy! It has been quite a while since there has been a challenge on Wee Memories, so I decided tonight that I NEEDED to do this challenge--#65 Back to School!

This was an awesome challenge--I used a stamp set I've intended to take to school and actually use, but never have...

Here's the card's story:

I work for the school district here. I know that school has just started, but you have to understand that an educator's job is hard and compliments are ever harder to come by. I personally know how helpful it can be to just get a smile from a co-worker, let alone an actual, "Well done!" That's why I made this card. I can use it to give to a co-worker I notice may need a pick me up! And because of the simplicity of the design, I can replicate it quickly! :) So, I am gonna make a stash of them...soon...hopefully! If not, I will make little bookmarks. ;D

(PS: I LOVE my co-workers and we try to create a very positive environment and we do succeed most of the time! Life just kinda gets you down sometimes when it's been a bad week, etc.)

I wanted to keep the color palette whimsical and basic, because I work at an elementary school...so I kept to bold basic colors--blue, red, green and black. I call this card "O is for Ostrich" because...there's an image...of an ostrich...on it. It was nice that the bird was an ostrich because I only had to color in the beak...there's the lazy side of me comin' out! ;D

But enough words...without further ado...THE CARD~

And THE DETAIL~

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you take the time today to say "great job!" to someone who you work with or someone who has taught you today!!! Happy stamping!
