Tilda says "Summer's Here!"

Good morning! Well, we have arrived at our last day of school at Cassadaga Valley! Yippeee!
The students will arrive at 8:45 and depart at 10:00-silly, huh? I have some work to finish and then we have a brunch. The rumor is that we don't have to return to school after brunch! This is the card that I made for my friend, Eileen, whose son I wrote about the other day. This is our last day of working together in the same room. The inside sentiment is, "You make me smile". I picked that one because I don't want to cry! It'll be tough!

Anyway, I love this summer Tilda! She also looks great on the dock, but I had this oval already to go so she's on a bench at the pool! I hope she doesn't get splinters! I was hoarding that red polka dot brad, but it seems perfect for Eileen's card! Do you think so? Here's where I got my stamp- Magnolia-licious! Hope you can check it out!

I have so many summer goals, but for today the objective is to finish my room at school!
What are your summer goals? Cleaning? More stamping and posts?

I thank you so much for visiting my blog! And I thank you so much if you take the time to comment! Big hugs to ya'!

Cheryl, first of all I'll echo your "Summer's here"....YAY! I want to do everything summer-themed. I love your card, and the DP is perfect with it. That is a cute brad, and I know what you mean about hoarding the cute ones, but it does go perfectly with this. I love this image. Makes me want to go ink it up right now. TFS!

Looks like we are all breaking out our Summer Tildas! LOL! Love the warm sunny feeling of this card, Cheryl!!
LOL! Glad that I am not the only one to hoard the embellies/paper/whatever that I love and then never put them to good use! At least it challenges me to use the ones that I don't like too! LOL!
Enjoy your Summer!

I can't believe you all are just getting out of school, Down here in Alabama the kids got out towards the end of May. Of course it has been in the 80's and 90's since then!
I love the bright colors of this one. Puts you in the mood for summer. Your friend will love it Cheryl!
Hugs,
Pam

Michelle said...

Congrats on your last day of school....finally!! We had a really short last day also...what's up with that?? It's basically just a day to say your goodbyes. I've already had a few weeks of summer & have gotten NOTHING done, lol. I've been playing chauffeur so not much else gets done. But that's ok....at least I don't have to get up at 6 am to do it, lol!!!
