End of the Year/Goodbye Card Series 9 of 13

Hi everyone!

Today, I have another end of the year/goodbye card for one of my RAs.  I'll be posting one card a day on here to show all 13 cards.

I wanted to give my RAs something as a going away gift.  I made a card for each one of them and wrote a small note to each of them.  I hope they all enjoy them.

Here's the ninth card in the installment.  I discovered and fell in love with Your Next Stamp stamps.  They have a plethora of cute images and I want them all.  Seriously.  Anyway, here are the pictures.  I chose Musical Ethan, for my RA Paul.  Paul has been on my staff for 3 years.  It has been so fun watching Paul grow into the young man he is today.  Paul graduated this year and is moving on to bigger and better things and I wish him luck in everything he does.

I will be honest, I did not write down any of the Copic markers that I used.  This was my first time using them, and as you can tell, I need to take a class.  Here's hoping I can take one this summer!  I also used a sentiment from one of the Stamp of the Months and the Dotty for You paper pack, both from Close To My Heart.

Craft on,


  1. Wonderful card Ian. This card series rocks my friend. And what a wonderful keepsake for your kiddos.
    I'm going to make some cards for my students this year. They always ask what card I'm working on at lunch today (they know I craft on my breaks. lol)
    They alawys ask if they can by one for... so this time I thought I'd make them each one.
    Thanks for the inspiration.

  2. Oh, D! That is a wonderful idea. They will absolutely love them! I'm so glad I could provide some inspiration. :) I'll be on the lookout on your blog for the cards! :)

    1. Sounds good.
      Boy I had a lot of typos in that post. That will teach me not to proof read. lol
