Well, since I had such a great time leading Sage's Sunday School group last year,
I signed up to do it again this year.
As much as I would have loved to keep my same group, because they were awesome,
the powers that be decided to change things up & I have a new group.
Three of the kids are from my group last year (including Sage!),
but I have seven new kids.
I wanted to start off the year on a good note, so I made them all "happy hello" cards
to tell them how excited I am that they're in my group, how I'm looking forward
to getting to know them & hanging out with them on Sunday mornings
and how I think this year is going to be great. :)
I decided to use the adorable ferris wheel stamp from Betsy's MIM County Fair kit
and paired it with a Wet Paint hello and the "a happy" stamp from WW: Hello.
I used the Journaling Card 1 die to die cut my panels.
I was going to use patterned paper for my backgrounds,
but changed my mind when I saw Laura's MIM this week for Papertrey Ink:
Emboss Resist Using Diecuts and decided that this would create
great backgrounds for my cards!
I used my Centre Stage cover plate for this technique.
I did half of the cards with the whole cover plate and half with just the top two thirds.
I inked them up using five colours.

And in raspberry fizz:
Thanks for looking!
