thanks a bunch

  I created this card especially for one of my dd's teachers, "Miss Lynn."  Lynn has worked with my girls for five consecutive years!  I absolutely adore her.  She always has a smile on her face and she reminds me of sunshine.  I try to create cards that I think fit the personality of the recipient, and her radiance inspired me to make this card for her.

  As usual my inspiration also came from the lovely Lauren Bergold of "...all the good blog names were taken..."  She was the first person I ever saw create these patterns on her cards.  I asked her how she did it, and she even wrote an easy sunburst tutorial.  Check it out!  Instead of her 1" increments, I used 1 1/2".

  The Echo Park papers and stickers were purchased from Shop Pumpkin Spice.

  *MWAH* to you, Lynn...you are such a blessing to our family.

Supplies:
papers:  Echo Park "Country Drive"
stickers:  Echo Park "a walk in the park" and "Country Drive"
border punch:  Martha Stewart grass punch
