Big Thanks Penguin

Hi all! Happy Wednesday!  My kids are counting down the days of school left — 1.5 after today.  They both really like school, so they are torn about being done with school.  I know my son doesn’t want to leave his teacher.  He’s had a fantastic year and they both share a love of math.

My card today is for her.  I am the class parent and did the class gift collection.  I wanted to give her a special card to go with it.

I created a money holder card using the fabulous Penguins in Paradise from MFT.  I wanted it to have a tropical feel and used Turquoise Sea and Sweet Mango from Gina K.  I sponged a piece of Neenah Solar White with Amuse Sky and Mama Elephant Ocean inks.  For the sand, I hand cut a piece of Kraft {I couldn’t locate my Snow Drift dies.}. I then cut out the palm trees, beach balls, penguin, clouds and sun using die-namics.  I colored up everything and started to glue things down.  To soften the edge of the sand a bit, I added a bit of Stickles.  The sun and clouds were added and then everything else was popped up on to dimensionals.  The sentiment is from Birdie Brown You’re Super.

I added some Glossy Accents to the penguins inner tube and some coconuts to each palm tree (long forgotten Dew Drops!).

Finally, inside I added another penguin and a sentiment.  LOVE how this turned out!
