School started 2 weeks ago and it has been a reeeeaaaaaallllllyyyyyy rough start. My back has been hurting. The heels of my feet have me walking like an 80 year old woman. I haven't been sleeping well and I feel the stress of a new year. Anyways, I was having a particular hard morning with my own boys when tears started to stream down my cheeks. It was very early in the morning so I walked to my classroom to start preparing for the day. I had no idea that a parent would actually be up there waiting to get something from my room. Yup, she saw the tears. I was sooooooooooo embarrassed but I just couldn't stop the tears. I let her into the room, went to my desk and got some hand sanitizer so I could clean off my face and settle down. After a few minutes, I was able to calm down enough. The parent was very understanding and she did not ask about anything. She simply came in and got the items she needed with her son.
Later on that day, I went down to my mailbox and I found a surprise. The parent had left me a card!!!!!!!! I was soooooooooooooo touched. Tears welled up in my eyes but this time they were tears of joy. I needed that card sooooooooo much. It showed me that someone cared. I just say enough how much that card means to me to this very day. I have the card in my entertainment unit so I can see it when I first come in the door and while I'm watching TV.
Soooo, I made her a card as a small thank you. It was a super small gesture because I would never be able to thank her properly. The gesture of a card really means soooooooo much. So here are some grainy pictures of the card that I made ( my iPhone fell into water and now it doesn't work like it used to but that's another story all together).
I cut the card out with the Cindy Loo Cricut cartridge at 3 and 3/4". I then cut the shadow at the same size. The doily was cut out of white cardstock and then stamped with my script stamp in creamy roan. The shadow scalloped paper was cut out of chocolate brown script paper. I then placed some Want-2-Scrap bling from www.2creativechics.com. Chocolate seam binding finished off the card. I think it came really nice.
Hope you guys enjoy :) Mercy
