Talk About Cheating

Cheating and school.  Not a good combo.   I felt like I was cheating when I was making this card because I did so little on my own.  Most of it is a piece of designer paper left over from a 12 x 12 piece which looked like a board game.  I used that and then printed a sentiment on a little piece of vanilla to cover up something that I did not want to show.  Added some stars, some faux photo corners, ribbon and "presto"  I had myself a card.

I like how it turned out.  It is getting harder to come up with cards for my grandson who is ten.  It is an in between age.  So many images are too young and yet I don't want to get into the teen age thing yet.  He liked this one (yeah!) but as he opened it to read what was inside he said, "What?  Where's the money!"  He was just kidding and it was great to hear him clowning around because he is usually so uptight when it comes to school.  Nice to see him relaxed on his first day of school this year.

Thanks for looking and for commenting . Have a great day.
