End of the Year/Goodbye Card Series 1 of 13

Hi folks,

Today, I have an 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.  You may or may not know this, but I am an Area Coordinator (Residence Hall Director) at a small private college in New York.  We are on a 3-year "contract", and this marks my 3rd year in the position.  I am officially done June 30, but could potentially leave earlier, depending if I have a job yet.  No bites yet, so time will tell.

Anyway, 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 first 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 Ethan out on the Pond, for my RA Mathew.  When I saw this image, I immediately pictured him in this same scenario and started giggling to myself.  Mathew is a funny guy.

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.

Don't be too harsh.  :)

Craft on,
