Today was a very special day! We attended Grandparent's Day with Miss Addison. It was so exciting to see her Pre-K classroom. Watching her with her teacher and all her friends was very amusing. I miss teaching and my heart was filled with mixed emotions. I hope to go work in her classroom very soon!
When I got home, I decided to go in my craft room and make a card. After checking the Create with Connie and Mary challenge and The Pals Paper Arts Color Challenge, I decided to create a card for both challenges. I really like the color combination of Midnight Muse, Crushed Curry and Early Expresso. This was my first attempt at a pocket card, but I know I will be making more in the future.
