Memory Makers Blog Bounce!

What fun! Today we are doing something new with different friends of Memory Makers books -- A Blog Bounce aka a blog hop.

(click on the banner to start at the beginning of the hop or if there is a broken link along the way)

The theme was simple -- Valentine's Day or some derivation of love. ;)

Perfect timing! I needed to either make some cards to give my kids for Valentine's Day or make a set of Valentine's Day cards for my kids to give to their classmates next week. Since my son wanted to give out Star Wars themed cards, I went for the easier to please child.  ha!

I grabbed the scrap white card stock I had sitting on my desk from making cards the other day and cut out 4x3" pieces. Then simply stamped images on them using the Mint Motif Sweet Hearts set. The open designs in this set are perfect to be colored in.

Bags and stickers are from Target ;)

On the back of each card I wrote 'To:' and 'From:' plus 'a card for your to color'. My daughter then addressed each one to her classmates. We added a fun sticker and 2 crayons in a little bag with the valentine card. Her classmates can then color their cards when they get home. We aren't allowed to give out candy at school so this is the next best thing. What Kindergartener doesn't love to color?

I also created 2 teacher cards for her teacher and aide. These were then colored by my daughter for her teachers. So cute!

Finished Teacher Card

SUPER easy project and I just simply used scraps of white cardstock. 

Ok, you are done with me now. ;) On to the next blogger... the fabulous Lain Ehmann!

Have a good one!
