A Lot to Share

I’ve been a busy little bee in my stamp room this week, and I’ve got a lot to share but not sure if I want to show all of it to you today.  I think I will just make you wait!  LOL!  Other than stamping my husband and I took the time to do a day trip this week.  We went to the Historic River Walk in Pueblo, Colorado.  Now it isn’t as big a deal as the one in San Antonio, Texas, but for the size of city that Pueblo is, I was impressed.  I’ve never been to San Antonio, but I hear that it is a nice place to visit.  We just might have to put that on our list of things to do once I am finally finished working.

I go back to work on August 12th.  It will be my final year of teaching.  I am approaching this final year with mixed emotions.  I officially retired at the end of this past school year, but this new one will be my “transition” year.  Part of me is anxious to get back into a routine and wonders if I will miss having my own classroom of students on a daily basis.  Part of me is ready to start this adventure called “retirement” and start doing some of those things I have always said I wanted to do.  Time will tell and the plan right now is to take things one day at a time.

Today I want to share a card I made using the Tag a Bag Accessory Kit (130153) found in our current Annual Catalog.  We got it as part of  one of our make-n-takes at convention.  I wondered what to do with all of the left over pieces after the make-n-take was complete and I decided to try this.  It turned out pretty well, don’t you think?

A word about the Tag It Stamp Set I used:  Every time someone purchases this set found on page 45 of our Annual Catalog, $3.00 is donated to Ronald McDonald House Charities.
