Dotty Simple Best Wishes Card

Hi there and happy Sunday! I am so excited to be back as a guest blogger over at the Cricut is Close to My Heart Blog! Since I went complicated the last time I was there, I thought it would be appropriate to go super simple this time. Our very close family friend just graduated from Nursing school after a long program to go from an LPN to an RN. She has worked tirelessly and we are all so proud of her.

I wanted to create a pretty card that was also simple. I also wanted the sentiment to include the idea that she is going on to receive her Bachelor's of Science in Nursing as well. I thought that a Best Wishes ard would say everything there is to say. That considered, I have also been so excited to use my Dotty for You papers! I went super simple by forgoing my usual Cricut cuts and just using my trusty paper cutter and some mono adhesive.

Here's the recipe if you'd like to try this simple card:

Front of Card:

Card base - 5" x 10" scored at 5"
2nd layer - 4 3/4" x 4 3/4"
Top layer - 4 1/2" x 4 1/2"
Polka dot band -  4 1/2" x 1 1/4"
Stamped band - 4 1/2" x 1"
I stamped the band in Lagoon ink

Inside Card:
 2nd layer - 4 1/2" x 4 1/2"
Top Layer - 4" x 4"

Make sure you use a light color for your top layer inside to write on!!

I hope you'll try to recreate this simple card!

Panda Hugs!

I'm Back!

I feel as though I have been away from my blog forever! It has been crazy here at the Panda household, but things are finally getting back to normal. As I have said before, I am a teacher, and I am also the yearbook adviser. I was working on a very difficult end of year yearbook deadline and couldn't stop to "smell the roses" for even a moment. When I finally finished that, my body decided it would be a fabulous time to get very sick for a little while. This past week, I finally started feeling better but had to finish preparing for Cubby's basketball birthday bash! We had the party today and it was a blast. The kids had a great time and Cubby loved it!! I will post pics of the party favors shortly because they were too cute not to share. I know I missed a couple of holiday card posts as well, so you can be sure that as soon as I can create them, I will share them!! Have a wonderful week and talk to you soon!!
BIG Panda Hugs!
