Yay!

Please scroll down to see my Artful Delight June Card Kit post!

 
Remember how I walked away, Mother, on tiny feet, my first school day?
With tiny hands I waved goodbye, and I saw he tear in the corner of your eye.
But you were brave and so was I, we both tried hard not to cry...
Then on the last day of school, as we all wave goodbye,
do you supposed the teacher will have a tear in her eye?

 I used Exclamations and some fun patterned paper to create a card for my son's kindergarten teacher. Sigh, I can't really believe he's done with kindergarten. Where does the time go?
 He really enjoyed his year and she was an amazing teacher,
I give her props for teaching as hard and as well as she did!

So now I'll send you on your way to Michelle Woerner's blog, but if you get if you got lost or sidetracked along the way, here is the lineup:
