a bright thank you

Hi!  There are so many fun challenges to participate in!  I'm trying to do as much as I can before I get onto some end of the school year stuff.  I'm thinking of making pinwheels attached to pencils but maybe that is too time consuming.  I have just about a week left. 

After making my previous bright card, I saw that Some Odd Girl is having a BRIGHT challenge!  And it'll be on Facebook too.  So I printed out Bookish Tia and had fun coloring her up.  Yeah, I bought her cause of her glasses and her books.  Totally reminds me of my daughter.  Even my daughter thought Bookish Tia was a lot like her so she wants to give this card to her school's librarian. 

I kept the papers (from Doodlebug) pretty simple.  I added some cork borders (PTI die) and used my felt too which I haven't used in quite a while.

The little tag, cork star and circular embellishments are all dies from PTI.  The sentiment is from PTI's Tiny Tags stamp set.

That is it for me!  Thanks so much for reading!

Lovely BRIGHT card! So spring-y too. Wow, you're still going to make end of year gifts? The best I can do is send my older one in with snacks, only because the teacher requested it too! I wonder if I can manage to make a card for the teacher even.

Awesome bright colours Eva! What a great card! Bookish Tia is adorable and I'm thinking this will be the perfect card for the librarian!

Thanks so much for playing along in our Bright Colours Facebook challenge at SOG!

She is tooooo cute! I love your use of bright colors! I can't wait to get mine colored up today. (laid out everything I want to use, last night!) I may have to get her soon!

I hear ya on the end of the school year stuff. I'm trying to think of all the things I like to do without the girls, and get them done before next friday! (so mean, I know.) Nothing beats going to the movies in the middle of a week-day, with nobody there, and your popcorn all to yourself! he he
