This spring it has been wonderful to finally do something semi-normal again and take my son, Harvey, to gymnastics. With lots of extra safety measures and regulations in place, we were able to enjoy a parent and tot class at our local gymnastics gym. I knew I definitely wanted to make up some cards to thank our two amazing coaches for this great experience.

 I had big plans to make some more elaborate Father's Day cards, but with all of the June family events I ended up keeping these fairly simple. I was able to create a fun background using the Big Plans Background stamp from The Greetery. I embossed it in white onto some white cardstock and then ink blended some Faded Jeans distress oxide ink. I kept my ink darker in the corners and lighter in the middle.

 I was so excited to start working on this card to celebrate our nephew's 4th birthday after taking Jenn Shurkus' Scootin' By course. I learned so many great tips for colouring and stenciling - especially with this new Lawn Fawn set! Our nephew loves to scooter and I really wanted to create an interactive card for him.

 I decided to make another personalized baby card to celebrate a friend having a baby recently. The name she chose, Brent, also happens to be the middle name of our son, Alexander! I was very inspired by Grace Camou's recent starry night sky card where she created a moon using an outside in circle die set. I loved the dark blue sky that she created with the puffy vellum cards and just had to make one myself!

 I recently found out that I got another position teaching at our local college! I will be team teaching another University of Victoria course in the teacher education program. This course is the first year seminar course in preparation for the first teaching practicum in the program. To celebrate, I just HAD to make a card for my new teaching partner!
