little bicycle

Isn't this bicycle stamp fun? I wish I had a bike like that, but I'm not sure how it would do on our dirt roads:) This is a sketch from get sketchy, but it's a couple weeks old. The paper came from a pack (me & my big ideas) that I've had forever. I love how all the colors match though. Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day.

hippo birthday

I made a couple cards with this week's cps sketch. I'm working on using up my stash and some wishes from SCS (I have a whole shoebox full of them).

I know that this school year is almost over, but I'm already thinking about next year. I have so many new ideas and plans. My notebook is full of lists and things I want to change. Another way to encourage me to use my stash is to give each of my students a card from me on their birthday. I usually let them pick a gift from my birthday box, but I thought it would be neat to set a card on their desk too. Aren't these perfect for little second graders?

This was a fun sketch. Make sure to check out the fun samples on the CPS blog. Thanks for stopping by!

cps sketch

I've been working on adding to my thank you card stash, but I've been sending them faster than I've been making them. Oh well. This is last week's sketch over at the cps blog. I wasn't sure where to put the thank you sentiment, so I put it inside. The main image is a simple flower and I wanted to leave it uncolored for a subtle look. I've already mailed this one off, so I guess I better get going on some more!
