Wow - it's been a busy two days!! My dad called me last night to say that my aunt (who I haven't seen since I was a very young child) is coming to visit (aka - stop stamping and clean your house). She'll be here through Sunday, so we've been trying to plan meals and get togethers. School has started to become more routine, but there's still so much to do (aka - stop stamping and do work for school).
I made this card (and birthday bucks) for another student's birthday. You can see the original set here. He loves hamburgers and uses an image as his avatar on our classroom blogs, so I knew he'd get a kick out of it.
I thought the kids would like it if they each got their own unique card. This is probably best for me too b/c I'm terrible with the assembly line technique!! I had two birthdays to celebrate this week and decided to make two new cards and save the superhero in case I get in a pinch timewise. I have all of my students sign the card for the birthday boy/girl, and it's fun to see how excited they've gotten to see their classmate's card and predict what will be on their's. I've even got some requests - the elephant was fine, but I draw the line at a World of Warcraft card - like I know what a moonkin is anyway :)
Hope you have lots planned for the long weekend. I'll be cleaning, working on school stuff, and (you guessed it) stamping!!
