CASology has this cue
This is another one of the cards I discovered while tidying my craft room last year. I used a stencil and dabbed the ink onto the black card stock/ Adding some embossing powder for emphasis.
Unfortunately I can't remember any brands or colour names

AAA cards has a quote for us this time
Very literally today is the first day of the new school year here in South Africa. I get to meet the new boys in my class and start the new adventure, which is teaching, today.
For me this card depicts the kind of year that I would like to have this year. Most of us in the classroom moving in the same direction with only the odd one off course but from past experience I know that is wishful thinking.
Guess life would be dull and boring if we where all the same!
This is another one of the cards I found when tidying  out so it was made a long time ago. Sadly I have no idea as to supplies or brands.
The border was done with a felt tipped pen.
