>A card for my boss – Une carte pour ma patronne


This week is Daycare Educator Appreciation week. Our boss is giving us a little something special every single day. Her boss (the principal) will be offering her a present as well so I volunteered to make the card. I wanted something simple that she would appreciate. She loves flowers and frog images so this stamp from Stampin’ Up! (A Flower for All Seasons) was perfect for her. I simply colored the image with Prismacolor pencils, blended with odorless solvent and added a bit of Gold Liquid Pearl to the middle of the flowers (oops, looks like one of them needs to be fixed before I give the card!) The rest is pretty straight forward. I used papers from Making Memories.
Cette semaine, c’est la Semaine des Services de Gardes. Notre patronne nous donne un petit quelque chose de spécial à chaque jour. Sa patronne (la directrice) lui offrira un cadeau aussi alors je me suis portée volontaire pour faire la carte. Je voulais quelque chose de simple qu’elle apprécierait. Elle aime les fleurs et les images de grenouilles alors cette étampe de Stampin’ Up! (A Flower for All Seasons) était parfaite pour elle. J’ai simplement coloré l’image avec des crayons Prismacolor, estompés avec du solvant inodore et j’ai ajouté un peu de Liquid Pearl doré au centre des fleurs (oops, il y en a une qui doit être arrangée avant que je donne la carte!) Le reste est assez évident. J’ai pris des papiers de Making Memories.
