Chit Chat Congrats


My 5 year old Niece rang me earlier in the week to tell me that after 3 weeks at school she could read now. She was very excited to tell me all about it, so I decided to make her a card to let her know how proud I was of her. The sketch at Card Patterns Challenge #52 seemed perfect.

I changed the 2 big squares to look like a book (hopefully!) and the little squares were changed to look like gold stars that a teacher might give out for excellent work. I stamped the alphabet underneath to make it look a bit more 'schooly'.

Card stock: Whisper White, Lovely Lilac, Yoyo Yellow, Vellum
Stamps: Jumbo Outline Alphabet
Ink: Lovely Lilac
Other: Chit Chat Rub Ons, White Embroidery Floss, Star Punch (non SU)

Catch you later,


PS - Don't forget the Art With Heart Easter Blog Hop this Sunday. There's blog candy up for grabs if you're not a Stampin' Up! demo - all you have to do is leave comments on all 14 blogs.


  1. A great idea, perfect for a school themed card, great job Tina!

  2. Love all the stars! I'm sure your niece will enjoy reading out loud to you!


Thanks for taking the time to comment. I really appreciate it.
