I had been wanting one of these Gruffies stamps and finally found one on ebay last month at a reasonable price for trying's sake. I must say that there is a lot of effort involved in the coloring process, but I think it's well worth it.
Our school custodian is out on medical leave with his second knee replacement surgery this year. He was in a lot of pain and now he isn't which is great news. I'm always in a pickle about what images to use for masculine cards. You don't want to have it flowery, but I think that these two sunflowers are being used in a clever way and not necessarily meant to be feminine.
With the exception of the blue sky background, this image was colored with markers and blender pen. I added the picket fence border punch piece along the bottom and a quick Thinking of You sentiment in green.
Just before school let out for the summer there was a bear sighting in the neighborhood. It caused a little bit of commotion as we have students who walk home, but the bear moved on and everyone was safe. Maybe he found a hammock somewhere along the way!
